GEOGRAPHY BASED PROJECTS

Saddleback Condominiums

This project, a 228 unit residential condominium complex is uniquely situated in two different municipalities and two different counties - the City & County of San Francisco and Daly City in San Mateo County. KCA provided civil site design, surveying and condominium mapping services including extensive grading on steep slopes, complete utility layouts, and roadway systems.

Extend Guadalupe Canyon Parkway to Rte 101

KCA developed concept plans for the extension of Guadalupe Canyon Parkway from its current intersection with Bayshore Boulevard to a new interchange with U.S. Route 101. The study involved several alternate alignments and grading options through difficult terrain.

Jamestown Water Main Extension

KCA prepared route studies and improvement plans for a major pipeline in southeastern San Francisco, designed to provide domestic water service to several proposed developments in the Candlestick Point area.

Midway Village Master Plan & Civil Design

The Midway Village Master Plan and Design Guidelines report, in conjunction with an earlier KCA-authored ‘Preliminary Investigation’ report was used to guide the redevelopment of war-time housing on the Midway Village site in Daly City. The report developed site constraints, site design guidelines, and conceptual housing design. A detailed construction schedule and project cost projections were included. The study led to the construction of 160 new units of assisted housing managed by the Housing Authority of San Mateo County.KCA was retained as civil engineer and surveyor for this project.

Bayshore 'Big Box’ Planning

In the area just east of Bayshore Boulevard near the City's southerly boundary, KCA provided concept civil engineering for several "big box" retail proposals. The studies included an analysis of traffic circulation issues including the relationship of the projects to nearby Caltrain operations and an area-wide drainage analysis.

Tunnel Road Reconstruction

Along this 1.5 mile section of settlement-prone roadway between San Francisco and the City of Brisbane, KCA designed repairs to the roadway and provided vertical displacement surveys to monitor roadway performance.

Brisbane Station

On this largely vacant 800 acre tract KCA provided to the owner concept studies for residential and commercial development of the parcel. KCA prepared boundary and topographic surveys, a study of existing utilities and their capacity to be extended and enlarged to serve the proposed project and circulation alternatives focused on new interchanges with U.S. Route 101.

Carter-Martin Streets Improvement Project

KCA engineers designed street and water system improvements in the vicinity of the Cow Palace in northern San Mateo County. KCA managed a project that involved four separate governmental entities, 25 financial contributors, significant community participation and innovative environmental mitigation activities As Assessment District Engineer, duties included design, construction management and inspection of major street and utility improvements over difficult terrain along the northeasterly slopes of San Bruno Mountain. Received a Caltrans "Excellence in Transportation Facilities" award.

San Bruno Mountain, Visitacion Rancho, Crocker Hills Projects

KCA provided conceptual civil design and planning services on this 2,667 acre mixed-use development located between the cities of Daly City, Brisbane and San Francisco. Primary work efforts included site development engineering, utility investigation, development cost projections, traffic circulation planning, hydrologic studies, topographic and property surveys and preparation of planning and engineering exhibits for public presentation. Although environmental issues prevented the realization of the entire master development plan, KCA did design the residential site work, roadways and utility systems for Pointe Pacific located along the western slopes of the mountain.

San Francisco Executive Park

This business park project is at the southern entryway to Candlestick Point and 3Com Park. KCA provided civil design of roadway and parking lot improvements and prepared subdivision maps for a multi-phase project.

Schlage Lock Redevelopment

KCA undertook boundary surveys on this 20 acre site and assisted the environmental consultant in location of test borings.

Hunter’s Point Housing

KCA was responsible for civil engineering aspects of this large scale redevelopment project. Work involved the design of a new community including schools, childcare centers, community meeting rooms, shopping center, churches, recreation center, playgrounds, landscaping, extensive retaining walls, a one million gallon water storage reservoir and undergrounding of utilities. This project received a HUD Award for Design Excellence.
