Here are some District 1 projects:
City of L.A. HHH Affordable Housing Projects are beginning, and we have a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) on the Apartments/Condos. MG Electric is doing the Ingraham Apartments in the heart of Downtown L.A. and will need more Local 11 Electricians.
7th Street Elementary School is a $6 million project for a new food service facility and Technion Constructors is installing the electrical systems with Telenet VOIP installing the low voltage electrical systems. It is a new project and will be calling for workers soon.
LAUSD Ascot Avenue Elementary School is a $76 million school modernization project that will have demolition of the existing classroom buildings with new classrooms and administration buildings installed. Baker Electric will perform the inside electrical and First Fire will handle the low voltage work. The pre-job was at the beginning of January and demolition is still happening, but the underground work will be coming shortly as I learned during my visit to the jobsite last week.
The $83 million Metro Center Street Project for Metro Rail and Security Operations is being built at 410 Center St. in Los Angeles. Fiske Electric and RBT Electric are assigned the work. They are setting two vaults per week and installing underground conduit.
8th and Figueroa is a Rosendin Electric high rise condo/apartment project that will be calling for manpower in May or June. They are still below grade doing decks and underground.
Regional Connector is the $1 billion Project that is being built at several locations in Downtown L.A. Hope and 1st Street, 2nd and Alameda and Broadway and 2nd Street. Dynaelectric, Taft Electric, Global Electric, Mass Electric and DCD Electric are performing work there with different scopes. It is still a very long way away and will require more manpower to complete.
960 West 7th street is a 56-story tower located adjacent to the 7th and Figueroa outdoor mall. CSI Electric is the NECA Contractor performing the work. They are currently on the 4th floor podium parking for the tower. They will call for manpower in approximately two months.
The Lucas Museum is a SASCO Project that has a lot of steel being installed. They have topped off the steel and are starting to build larger portions of the project. It is a monumental, $1 billion museum and will start to build out in late April, needing lots of manpower.
The HMT Electric high-rise hotel/condo is at ground level now at New Hampshire and Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown. There will be a growing demand for manpower as they pour and build the next few levels of the project. April and May will see a demand for manpower.
Thank you for the honor to be your District 1 Business Representative.
