Swinerton Builders is proud to announce the commencement of construction of a new parking structure in Downtown Los Angeles. Since early June Swinerton has been providing preconstruction services, working closely with the project architect IDG Parkitects. Joe's Auto Parks -- the city's largest parking provider -- will own and operate the facility.
Located at 8th and Grand, just three blocks down from Swinerton's Los Angeles office, the new 100,000-square-foot parking structure will consist of five levels, with the ground floor containing retail and the second through fourth floors containing 174 parking stalls. The new structure is on a complex site, sitting adjacent to property lines on all sides: two of the sides are busy streets, one side houses an existing building, and the fourth side contains another active construction site -- which will require coordination with the contractor and owner.
Swinerton is performing general contracting services while putting their own formwork to use as they self-perform all of the concrete. Formwork fabrication has been on-going in Swinerton's yard in Riverside, California. The project is anticipated to complete in November 2016.
