As prime consultant, DRC provides civil engineering services under a pre-qualified on-call consultant contract for the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering (BOE), Geotechnical Engineering Division (GED). The Storm Damage Repair Program, funded by FEMA, repairs damage caused by winter storms. The majority of these projects are storm drain and sanitary sewer designs using BOE guidelines. The project highlights designs of street, curbs, gutters; site grading design; geotechnical design; erosion control, surface improvements; and utility relocation. This involves designing earth-retaining bulkheads consisting of steel beams placed in concrete-filled drilled shafts and concrete lagging between the beams. Scrupulously following city and county guidelines and drafting standards, DRC provides civil and structural engineering support services to draft construction plans for repairing, rehabilitating, or replacing street facilities damaged by winter storms. DRC’s CAD manager led a team for the city’s Storm Damage Repair project. He provides valuable guidance to the city’s GED CAD team for developing CAD Standards and solutions with Land Desktop, AutoCAD, and MicroStation.
