City of Gilroy First Street Waterline Replacement Project

, ,

4LEAF provided CM and Inspection Services for this $6M waterline replacement project.  First Street is a Caltrans-operated roadway, so considerable coordination has been required with Caltrans to obtain an encroachment permit for construction. The project consisted of the installation of 8,050 l.f. of 24-inch waterline, valves, and fire hydrants; tie-in of new mains to existing mains; replacement of service laterals up to existing water meters; and replacement of water meters and water meter boxes where appropriate. Permanent trench paving was completed using a special Caltrans specification and inspections were performed per the 2015 Caltrans Standard Plans and Specifications. 4LEAF utilized the cloud-based program Procore to all project documents (RFIs, submittals, change orders, schedules, project files, daily reports, and project photos).
