Layfield Honored at the WCCC Owners Project Excellence Awards

April 8, 2019


San Diego, California – 2018

We are pleased to announce that Layfield USA has received the prestigious honor of being awarded the Exceptional Project Award & the Innovative Project Award by the Western Council of Construction Consumers, in tandem with the LA Department of Water and Power for their work on the Lower Franklin Reservoir floating cover replacement.

The Lower Franklin Reservoir is a major storage facility in the Los Angeles drinking water storage system. The reservoir’s initial floating cover was installed in 1989, and by 2011 the original cover was replaced. Layfield was awarded the contract to supply and install a CSPE floating cover and liner system for the potable water reservoir. To meet the request of the local homeowners Layfield used a unique blue colored CSPE material to make the covered reservoir look more natural.

Western Council of Construction Consumers (WCCC) serves as a forum for Owners involved with commercial, institutional and industrial construction. Since 1972, the non-profit council has provided members with resources and support needed to fully develop and advance in safety, operations and maintenance, cost-efficiency, professional development, and overall quality construction.

Members of Layfields’ San Diego office had the pleasure of accepting the awards in person. Rob Rempel, Layfields’ Vice President accepted the awards and said, “We are honored to accept these awards from the Western Council of Construction Consumers. The Lower Franklin Reservoir was a very successful project and we look forward to working with the LADWP on projects in the future”.
