LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 -- Burnham -- As expediter of record, Burnham is an integral part of the Wilshire Grand project: managing, expediting and executing all required building and construction permits. Burnham has been intimately involved with the Wilshire Grand project and will see it through to completion in early 2017. The Wilshire Grand Center, a luxury hotel with over 900 rooms in downtown Los Angeles, will also feature office space, commercial/retail space, upscale restaurants, and nightlife venues.
The kick-off construction "mat pour" event set a Guinness World Record for largest continuous concrete pour in recorded building history with 21,240 cubic yards of concrete poured. When completed the Wilshire Grand will be the tallest structure west of the Mississippi.
"It has been incredible to be a part of history," said Casey McCormick, General Manager of Burnham. "Everyone on the project team has gone above and beyond to ensure a successful and safe execution of this project."
Erecting a 73-story tall skyscraper is no small feat and Burnham has been on-board to secure some of the most challenging and difficult approvals from soils report, traffic control plans and permit clearances associated with shoring, excavation, foundation and superstructure permits. Burnham is working in conjunction with Turner Construction, AC Martin and Martin Project Management.
"The Wilshire Grand is an amazing project for Burnham," says Carson Kyhl, President Manager of Burnham, "This project is going to provide us with experiences with some of the best professionals in the business, that truly understand the responsibility for this world class development....We are excited that we can help them be more productive."
The Wilshire Grand is owned by Korean Air and is a 1.1 billion dollar project. Upon its completion the building will receive a LEED Silver certification and create 11,500 local jobs.
