KCA Drainage Department Selected for a Pair of Southwest FL Projects
KCA received excellent news earlier this summer when it was selected for a pair of drainage/stormwater design contracts in southwest Florida. KCA was selected for the Ten Mile Canal/41 Industrial Park Drainage Improvements project for Lee County and the Naples Manor Stormwater Improvements Preliminary Engineering Study (PES) project for Collier County. Both projects will be managed out of KCA’s Fort Myers office and will be led by Project Manager (PM), Rick Arico, PE, and Deputy PM, Brian Rose, PE.
The Ten Mile Canal/41 Industrial Park Drainage Improvements project for Lee County involves the construction of a canal berm to hydraulically separate lower areas between Old US 41 in Lee County and the canal to prevent severe flooding. The project also seeks to perform drainage forensics to evaluate the 41 Industrial Park drainage system to identify specific conveyance routes for the 25-year/3-day flood event to the Ten Mile Canal.
The Naples Manor Stormwater Improvements project involves the preparation of a PES to outline options and cost estimates for stormwater improvements that will be needed based on planned sidewalk projects within the Naples Manor community in Collier County.
KCA will be supported for both projects by subconsultants AIM Engineering & Surveying, Inc., for surveying/mapping, subsurface utility engineering (SUE), and utility coordination and Cella Molnar and Associates, Inc., for public involvement.
Congratulations to the pursuit teams including Rick Arico, PE; Brian Rose, PE; Tara Spieler, PE; and Jesse Gill, PE. A big thanks to the marketing team and all that helped with the preparation of the proposals, presentations, and the marketing efforts that contributed to these wins!
