Port of Los Angeles Harbor Administration Building’s Remodeling Project

Client: Port of Los Angeles
Location: San Pedro, CA
Size: Lobbies
Cost:  Unkown
Start Date: May 2007
Completion Date: TBD


Anil Verma Associates, Inc. (AVA) was responsible for the renovation and remodeling of the Harbor Administration Building’s entrance lobby and elevator lobbies on several floors at the Port of Los Angeles.


The Port of Los Angeles is Southern California’s gateway to the international trade, and it is located close to the Pacific Ocean, twenty miles south of downtown Los Angeles in San Pedro, CA. The Harbor Administration Building has an Avante Garde design evoking an industrial feel with steel beams encasing the exterior perimeter. The steel beams resemble the cargo cranes located throughout the port. This building was designed by the renowned Architect John Carl Warnecke, one of the great architects of the 20th century, and was dedicated on August 19, 1981.

The interiors were dull, uninviting and not conducive to the business environment.  The Work Plan entailed interior design services for the entrance lobby and the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor elevator lobbies of the Administration Building. The scope of work included the development of not more than (3) interior design concepts for these areas and the preparation of preliminary design based on the selected concept. The work included Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Services & Concept Level Cost Estimates.  Upon acceptance by the Port, full construction contract documents were prepared for implementation in 2007.
