Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

Silver Lake Headworks East is the first phase of a new reservoir storage facility at the Headworks spreading grounds, a 43-acre site adjacent to the Los Angeles River and between the City of Burbank and Griffith Park.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) designed the project, and it is their first project to utilize the CMAR delivery method. Among other functions, Headworks East consists of construction of a 54 million-gallon reservoir, 75,000 CY of cast-in-place structural concrete, 6000 linear feet of 96” diameter welded steel water pipe, 3,000 linear feet of 18’ diameter concrete-lined conveyance tunnel traveling underneath Forrest Lawn Drive, and cast-in-place utility vault housing valves and the electrical support structure providing monitoring and control of flows in and out of the reservoir.


Construction is what we do best - it’s no surprise that we live and breathe every aspect of construction.
