953 N. Sycamore – Mat Foundation Pour

Largo completed a 5,000cy mat pour at the 953 N. Sycamore project in Los Angeles on June 17. Running three pumps, the foundation pour lasted over 12-hours with the first Cemex readymix truck arriving at 2:00 a.m. Designed by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects and structural engineers at the BPA Group, the uppermost levels of the mid-rise commercial building are offset from the parking levels below, creating a twisting effect as the building moves up. The building is scheduled to be complete in March of 2018 and has a total of 11 levels, two of which are below grade, spread across 214,573gsf. This is the third project Largo has worked on with GC/Developer the CIM Group over the last couple years; the 925 La Brea project and 7007 Romaine are both located less than a block away. Later this summer, Largo begins work on the 904 La Brea project with the same owner, also a stone’s throw away from 953 N. Sycamore.

7007 Romaine Tops Out

Construction is moving forward on the 7007 Romaine project in the Hollywood Media District, with Largo pouring our last structural deck earlier this month. When complete, this 153,000gsf structure will feature 60,000sqft of office space with balconies, outdoor decks and floor-to-ceiling windows. The two levels of office space will sit atop a 4 level parking garage which provides 298 stalls with retail space on the ground floor. Close to the 101 freeway and bordering West Hollywood, the development is planning to open in the third quarter of 2017. We are working with Shubin + Donaldson ArchitectsJLA Structural Engineers and general contractor the CIM Group to deliver to project on-time and within budget.

Shoring and Formwork on a Cantilevered Balcony Deck

Check out the shoring and forming of the cantilevered balcony decks at our 8th & Spring Street Project in downtown Los Angeles! We utilized a Peri Beam-Deck Table System to move the shoring from one level to the next more efficiently and also support the cantilevered slab load without installing shoring all the way to the ground. Although the deck immediately below the cantilever is several feet in from its slab edge, our in-house Engineering Department was able to design the re-shoring system which allowed the loads that are coming down from deck table’s outside legs to be transferred and distributed into to the poured decks below without causing problems to the structure.

USC Michelson Center for Convergent Biosciences

Largo recently completed the 225,000gsf Michelson Center for Convergent BioSciences at the University of Southern California. The facility will be home to an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences with the Viterbi School of Engineering. The building features one basement level and four levels above grade and will house high-tech medical equipment including a nano-fabrication facility and an electron microscope. The exterior of the building features two story tall concrete arches at both entrances and exposed, board-form architectural concrete finish on the interior face of the perimeter walls. Designed by HOK  with John A. Martin & Associates as the structural engineer, Largo worked with general contractor DPR Construction to deliver this project on-time and under budget.

Sunset La Cienega Hotel & Residential High-Rise Towers in West Hollywood, California

The East and Middle Parcels of the Sunset La Cienega Development is now under construction at the southern corners of the Sunset and La Cienega intersection in Los Angeles. The development boast two 10-story hotel towers to the East of La Cienega and two 8-story residential towers to the west. The East Parcel is 235,000gsf with 296 rooms and the Middle Parcel is 292,240gsf with 190 total units, with both parcels featuring retail and restaurant space on the ground floor and below-grade parking.

Largo will pour over 60,000CY of concrete between both parcels which includes specialty architectural concrete and board form finishes. Each parcel requires two tower cranes, which are under Largo’s contract, along with reinforcing steel and masonry. The logistically challenging site is located on a steep incline at the foot of the Hollywood Hills surrounded by high-end residential to the south and the ever-busy Sunset Blvd. to the north. The CIM Group purchased the property in 2011 and Largo Concrete is working with General Contractor Suffolk Construction, Architect/Engineer Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP to be poured out in September 2015. Largo is also participating in the creation of a Level of Design (LOD) 300 Building Information Model, with weekly coordination meetings including all trades, to turn over to the client when construction is complete in Late 2016.
