My Brothers and Sisters,
There’s not a lot of change in upcoming or current projects in the District 2 area, so I will recap a little of what has already been reported on.
Rosendin-Meadows JV, Pacific Industrial Electric and GECTWO will all be working on the Harbor UCLA five-year project. The existing campus is going to be removed (the main hospital is staying) and all new buildings, new sub-station and infastructure will be going in. Jobs calls probably won’t start until later this year. The new parking structure for this project should start in late September or early October.
Taft Electric has the brand new, out-of-the-dirt Compton High School project starting soon.
There will be two new 8-story buildings coming in downtown Long Beach where the old court house/civic center used to be.
There are six tilt-up buildings coming in Carson across the freeway from IKEA where the outdoor mall was going to be built – a total of 1.5 million square feet. Gregg Electric will be doing this. Gregg will also being doing two new buildings by the Long Beach Airport.
The Belmont Shores Pool in Long Beach covered under a PLA needs to be built before the 2028 Olympics.
AES Power Plant in Long Beach is scheduled to add another 75 MW of BESS.
BEI is also getting ready to start a new battery storage facility at the Hinson Substation in Long Beach. This project has just broke ground and is estimated for six to nine months.
Right down the street from our South Bay Hall, they are demolishing the existing Toyota plant buildings and replacing them with new tilt-ups. Gregg Electric should be doing this one.
There are multiple projects in the Port of Long Beach and Los Ageles ongoing, with some new ones to start in the near future.
The City of Carson is going to be installing more than 100 EV charging stations after SCE gets the infastructure in place. Baker Electric is slated to be installing the EV chargers. The new infastructure bill is going to pump a lot of money into this EVITP type of work, so please get your EVITP certification. You can sign up for the class through ETI. It is an online course; you can go at your own pace, and you will take the final test for your certification at the ETI.
