L.A. Metro signs first contract with all-female-owned consultant group

Posted on September 4, 2019

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (Metro) board awarded a contract to KDG+DE Construction Support Services for $25.9 million to provide construction support for the Airport Metro Connector (AMC) 96th Street Transit Station project. This is the first time a female-led consultant group has been selected to work on a large Metro project.

KDG+DE is a partnership of KDG Construction Consulting and Destination Enterprises. The AMC station will serve Metro rail and local bus lines. The station will also be the transfer point between local transit and the future Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA) Automated People Mover that will provide quick rides to and from LAX passenger terminals.

Metro expects to begin heavy construction in mid-2020 with the station forecast to open in 2023, the same year as the LAX people mover is scheduled to debut.

KDG Construction Consulting was founded in 1980 and provides program and construction management services to public and private clients in California and the western U.S.

Destination Enterprises is a construction management firm that also provides claims and litigation professional services to the public and private sector in Southern California.
