District 1 South Report — March 2021

Here are some District 1 projects:

Ascot Avenue Elementary School, LAUSD, is a $76 million modernization project that will require demolition of existing classroom buildings and new classrooms and administration buildings to be installed. Baker Electric will take on the inside electrical and First Fire will perform low voltage work. The pre-job happened at the beginning of January and demolition has commenced. Further information about manpower demand is coming soon.

An $83 Million dollar Metro Center street project for Metro Rail operations and security operation is being built at 410 Center St. in Los Angeles. Comet Electric, Advanced Cable Solutions and Global Electric are assigned the work.

960 West 7th street 56-story tower is located adjacent to the 7th and Figueroa outdoor mall. CSI Electric is the NECA contractor performing this work. They are currently on the third floor podium parking for the Tower. They will call for manpower in approximately two months.

Baker Electric is working on a project at White Memorial on Boyle Street which is about to start working two 12-hour shifts to complete a special project for the hospital. They will be calling for manpower very shortly.

The Lucas Museum is a SASCO Project that has a lot of steel going up. They are about to top off the steel and start building larger portions of the project. It is a monumental $1 billion museum, and will start to build out in late March, needing a lot 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 a few levels of the project. April will be when the demand for manpower really kicks in.

Thank you for the honor of being your District 1 Business Representative.
