North Tahoe PUD StairwayKings Beach, California
The North Tahoe Public Utility District Kingswood, pump station is accessed via a steep hillside from the road. An icy slope made for safety concerns for the weekly maintenance visits during the winter months. GDG provided structural engineering and agency processing for this new steel stairway designed to withstand the elements while providing safe access to the building. We provided additional services involving the various agencies including expedited TRPA processing, (usually a 180 day process), road encroachment, fire department defensible space review and drainage, (BMP) design, all within approximately 60 days.
