Miller Environmental had been busy with abatement and demolition the last few months at the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts (LACMA) which was founded in 1961 and is the largest art museum in the western United States. We are currently preparing the Leo S. Bing Theater (in process), Ahmanson, Hammer and the Art of Americas Buildings for demolition. William Pereira designed 3 of the buildings in 1965 and we will turn over a few sections of the Ahmanson’s exterior for future art re-purposing in the LA area by a local artist.
While there are many opinions regarding the new museum designed by Swiss Architect Peter Zumthor and orchestrated by LACMA CEO Michael Govan and team the thought and planning that has occurred over the past 10 years to get started on this $700M project is a great achievement.
This four building complex to be removed totals 400,00 SF of space and the tallest section to the left at 95′ is directly of Wilshire Blvd.
Our daily team of 100 at the project are doing an excellent job with safety and COVID-19 protocols.
