The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

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.
The Los Angeles skyline is changing!
Soaring to 1,100 feet (including the spire), The Wilshire Grand Tower will be the tallest building on the West Coast. It will also have the first double deck elevator in city of Los Angeles. Scheduled completion is 2017!
A special Thank You to Peter Callas – Chief Inspector, Barry Friesen – Principal Inspector, and David Jennings – Senior Safety Engineer for their presentation and ongoing participation in the EIGSC.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Raffle!
