Project Spotlight

Project: 
Pacific Corporate Tower Exterior Facade
Completed:
December 2013
Scope:
Duggan gave a serious face lift to the Pacific Corporate Tower campus in El Segundo.The campus includes 1.5 million square feet of office space and a 5,000 stall parking garage. Duggan originally painted the Pacific Corporate Towers 17 years ago proving our services to be a high quality and lasting product.  The Duggan team primed and painted existing painted Kynar panels with Sherwin Williams acrylic coating and usen seven different kinds of paint to bring a beautiful new look to the campus at a relative low cost.  The Pacific Corporate Towers are the first Kynar Aluminum Buildings painted in Los Angeles.

Runway at Playa Vista

Duggan and Associates Inc. wins the new construction painting contract at this one-of-a-kind lifestyle center in Playa Vista

Runway is set to become the premier option for shopping, dining, entertainment and living in West LA - offering nearly 221,000 square feet of retail space, 35,000 square feet of office space and 420 residential units.  Duggan will paint shell and core for both the retail and office buildings and the interior and exterior of the upscale residential units.  The team worked hard to competitively bid this project and was ultimately awarded the job based on superior qualifications and service.  Duggan looks forward to doing our part in making Runway at Playa Vista a spectacular place to shop, dine and live!

Project Spotlight
Cedars Sinai, Beverly Hills

Project:
Cedars-Sinai Campus Facade Improvement
Completed:
June 2013
Scope
This year and a half long project was indeed a hefty one.  Let's look at it in more detail. Cedars Sinai consists of seven buildings including the main hospital building you see pictured.  Two of the building are brand new and the others were more mature. Duggan worked with Cedar to make sure that everything looked up-to-date and would match accordingly.  The Duggan team stripped its existing worn coating off the Kynar panels down to bare metal and applied a urethane acrylic finish system manufactured by Tnemec.  All metal to metal joints and metal to class wet seal were replaced with DOW Corning 795 silicone sealant. Lastly, all of the exposed architectural concrete surfaces were stained and sealed making the building stand out more vibrantly that it did before.  Needless to say, Cedars is looking fantastic.

Duggan Family Spotlight
Nelson Cullum

Nelson is celebrating his 22nd year at Duggan and Associates this month! Before he came to Duggan, he worked as a painter in the field for 15 years. He loves his job because of the work environment; his co-workers are like family to him.  One of his favorite projects was the restoration of Disneyland's Tomorrowland train station. He enjoyed driving his car around the park during the after hours and learning that the smoke stacks on Mark Twain's steam boat aren't painted. They are actually 22 karat gold leaf.

Customers Share the Love

"Nelson,
I want to let you know that Christopher and his partner did a GREAT job painting the Union Bank project.  He was always in communication with me and made sure we both were on the same page as well as delivering a quality product.  He is a pleasure to work with.
 
Thank you,
Lance Sprague, Turelk"
