EIGSC’s Monthly Message – December 2013

December 12, 2013

In November   we had a great presentation by the City of Los Angeles Department of Building   and Safety.  During the presentation we   heard from Peter Callas- Chief Inspector, Barry Friesen- Principle Inspector,   and David Jennings Senior Safety Engineer.    The presentation was historical and thought provoking.  Did you know the number of Hydraulic   Elevators in the city of Los Angeles? Cabled Elevators?  Escalators and moving walkways?  Below was part of David Jennings   presentation:

It is   incredible the City of Los Angeles has 22,856 conveyances and growing!  That is a lot of potential business for our   industry!

All three presenters spoke about the good   outlook for the future.  The   presentation described the many upcoming high rise projects, renderings of   the new 73 Floor Wilshire Grand Tower, and high dollar projects at LAX.
