Terra-Petra is proud to be a sponsor of “Building BIDs: The Future of DTLA Development” on Tuesday, October 10th at the City Club Los Angeles. Register here.
Downtown Los Angeles’ neighborhood stakeholders work diligently to make downtown a better place to live, work, and play. Some districts are long established supported by definitive identities, and continue to flourish; while others are emerging as relative newcomers with blossoming identities. Join us to hear directly from Business Improvement District (BID) leaders, developers and city officials for a forecast of what is to come, how the BIDs are a change agent for DTLA, and anticipated projects necessary to fulfill the goals of the respective districts.

The in-place UST abandonment went well this past week with a current Terra-Petra project in the Downtown Los Angeles area. LAFD Inspector Sanchez was satisfied with the procedure. Next step in the process will be to follow through with the soil borings, sampling and testing, and the investigative results shall be compiled in the UST Closure Report to LAFD.
Approximately 558,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) nationwide store petroleum or hazardous substances. The greatest potential threat from a leaking UST is contamination of groundwater, the source of drinking water for nearly half of all Americans. EPA, states, and tribes work in partnership with industry to protect the environment and human health from potential releases.
Project directed by Dave Lucero for Terra-Petra Environmental Engineering. Here are some preliminary photos.
Re-Imagining the Past: The original 1956 Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy Auditorium was a multi-functional Cafa-Gym-atorium. While it provided much needed flexibility, hosting untold numbers of disparate functions, it did not adequately accommodate any one activity. The time had come to recreate the venue to exclusively nurture and showcase the visual and performing arts. Terra-Petra was brought into this project to provide environmental engineering consulting expertise.
Designed by Pica +Sullivan Architects, Ltd., the newly renovated and reconfigured Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy Performing Arts Center and Mozilo Family Theater features an elegant pre-function lobby and art gallery, a proscenium theater with stadium seating, high tech production audio-visual system and theatrical lighting, stagecraft workshop and an art studio.
The extensive renovation entailed structural and seismic retrofit of the Spanish Colonial building, a broadening and lengthening of the stage and incorporation of accessory and support functions to service full scale performances for theater, dance and music.
The Wilshire Grand project grew from a handshake to become the tallest building west of the Mississippi. For three years, Times staff writer Thomas Curwen has chronicled its construction, from the initial planning phase to the topping off and final design touches. One the pages, are his stories of the Wilshire Grand tower.
To express his appreciation to all those who were involved with the Wilshire Grand project, Korean Air & Hanjin Group (property owner) Chairman Yang Ho Cho, placed the multiple-page advertisement in the Los Angeles Times on June 27, 2017. He wanted to publish the name of every person who worked on the project.
Working closely with A.C. Martin and Turner Construction on Los Angeles’ newest and tallest skyscraper, the Terra-Petra team is proud to be recognized in this LA Times piece (attached/linked PDF) above.
The Trojan Marching Band headlined the special Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on the Plaza area to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Wilshire Grand Center (June 23rd). The media covered event was hosted by Korean Air & Hanjin Group. Chairman (and USC alum) Cho and his team also hosted a private party in the building that evening.
Below are a few highlights we grabbed during the grand opening ceremony—along with fresh photos of, what Chairman Cho describes as, “the crown jewel of Figueroa Street.” Again, Terra-Petra is proud to be recognized as part of this outstanding project.
Placing #19 out of 30, Terra-Petra is very honored to be highlighted (see side bar notes on list below) and to be included on this prestigious list.
Terra-Petra has proudly joined the efforts of MVE + Partners in supporting the City of Hope Construction Industries Alliance Spirit of Life Gala which will be held in Orange County, California this fall.

Terra-Petra recently welcomed account executive, Mark Wagner, to the company’s San Francisco office. He will handle the management of the increased environmental engineering project workload coming out of a developing San Francisco Bay Area market. Mark’s degree in engineering and prior experience working for a Northern California firm that handles contaminated soil and water remediation makes him the perfect person to serve as Bay Area account executive for Terra-Petra.
Mark received his engineering degree from Messiah College in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania—where is also held a position as student project manager for the school’s Biodiesel Project. In this role, he conducted research for possible uses of glycerin from the biodiesel production process and led a team of peers to focus on engineering design project management. While attending Messiah, he also spent time as an intern for HCJB Global in Ecuador, gaining experience in topographical map development as well as direct project oversight and successfully led the development of a spring preserve for a community of 85 residents to access clean water in the Amazon.
Mark gained his most recent project management experience serving as project coordinator for Innovative Construction Solutions. At Innovative, he had the opportunity to gain insight into environmental remediation working with multiple project managers, and tracking progress on multiple projects throughout the Bay Area. Mark Wagner is a true pioneer in the environmental engineering industry and the perfect fit for Terra-Petra’s expansion into the Bay Area.
Environmental Engineering firm, Terra-Petra, will once again have a booth in the “Green Zone” booth N1665 on the Exhibition Floor at ICSC RECon 2015 in Las Vegas (May 17-20). For more information visit: https://lnkd.in/bDrCKKS.
