In late 2017 the New Wilshire Grand Center will open in Financial District of Downtown Los Angeles. The 73-story skyscraper will boast a 900-room hotel, restaurants, retail, and will hold the record as the tallest building west of the Mississippi. But before this $1 billion dollar mega structure could break ground, the original Wilshire Grand Hotel and Center had to be removed. Prior to any demolition activities the entire site required investigation for hazardous materials that would require remediation.
Alta Environmental was selected as the sole consulting company responsible for conducting the hazardous materials survey on the Wilshire Grand.
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has undergone the largest public works project in recent history by undertaking a massive expansion and renovation of its facilities.
