In a previous blog post in March, I announced our involvement on the AECOM signage project at One California Plaza, in Downtown Los Angeles.
After boarding up 38 window openings, our scope was to install 38 replacement lites of Viracon-supplied, high-performance glass with holes which would allow anchor points to protrude from the building. These holes were carefully positioned to hang two large “AECOM” signs, created by Priority Sign, (a fellow ESOP company), that would rest 42-storeys up on the North and East elevations of the building.
Just in time for the big unveiling earlier this month, it took our Giroux Glass crew roughly ten days to complete the project. Our glazier team exhibited a great attitude and engaged in constant communication throughout the job, really making the installation process easy for me.
Priority Sign’s National Program Manager, Mari Sheedlo, was also overjoyed with the way the project came out. She extended her gratitude to our team for their work removing glass, boarding up openings, and installing the high-performance glass. Mari was very kind to tell us, “I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all for ensuring this project was a success. Please ensure that all of your team members know how truly grateful I am to have great partners like you! I could not have gotten this accomplished, and on time, without the hard work and effort of you all.”
Thank you to all my teammates who made this project possible: Moises Orozco (superintendent), John McEwen, Fred Perez, Cesar Barragan, Christian Ruiz (foreman), Chris Parker, Steven Perez, Nick Butcher, and Derrick Kerr. Beyond glass installation, this Giroux Glass team helped me develop initial layouts for glass sizes, strategies for access, equipment evaluations, project coordination, and much more.
