Rampart Mint Welcomes 22 Formerly Homeless People

Rampart Mint Welcomes 22 Formerly Homeless People

Great article from beverlypress.com below about a this project in the Rampart Village area of Los Angeles.  Terra-Petra is very proud to have been a part of this project.  We designed and inspected the methane mitigation system during development, working with both the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation and KFA.

West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation is proud to announce the opening of Rampart Mint, an all-new, affordable apartment community for formerly homeless individuals. Located in the Rampart Village area of Los Angeles, Rampart Mint includes 22 permanent supportive housing units and one unit for an on-site resident manager.

Co-developed with Affordable Living for the Aging, Rampart Mint is built on city-owned land. ALA will provide the on-site building management and has decades of experience working with special needs populations.

“When residents begin to move in, it makes the project real for us,” said Matt Mason, WHCHC’s director of real estate development. “We’re all very proud to be able to create quality affordable apartments for L.A.’s most vulnerable community members.”

The KFA-designed building includes a spacious community room with kitchenette, a computer area, a rooftop garden with amazing views of the city, a building manager’s office and social services office.

“This has been a labor of love,” WHCHC Assistant Project Manager Rachel Peled said. “These last few days putting the final pieces in place, knowing their life-changing value, was electric.”

Rampart Mint was built by Dreyfuss Construction. Pioneering universal design principles have been incorporated so every unit accommodates those with and without physical limitations. Residents can truly age in place without fear of displacement.

“I am so pleased to see the Rampart Mint project come to life,” said Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, who represents parts of the Westlake neighborhood on the Los Angeles City Council. “My office has actively supported this project from the beginning, and I welcome 22 apartments for chronically homeless individuals with special needs in the district I represent. I look forward to continuing our work with WHCHC to create more quality affordable housing, including supportive housing, for our most vulnerable.”

Methane Mitigation Design And Consulting – Los Angeles, CA

Terra-Petra’s Environmental Engineering Division has been engaged by IBI Group to provide methane mitigation design and consulting services for a City of Los Angeles project known as the Hollywood Sanitation Yard in Los Angeles, CA.

The proposed new yard is for the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) Wastewater Conveyance Division. The site area is approximately 38,500 square feet, with about 13,000 square feet of existing one-story garage and office building to be demolished for the new facility. Approximately 8,500 square feet of 2-story new building will house office spaces, locker rooms, restrooms, exercise room, kitchen, assembly room, storage and other support rooms for the building to accommodate the daily yard operation.

Terra-Petra is recognized as an SBE and provides On-Call Consulting Services.

Methane Mitigation Services – Harbor City, CA

Terra-Petra is currently working with a Victorville design team to provide  Soil Gas Investigation (SGI), methane mitigation design, inspection, and consulting services for a retail development located in Harbor City, CA. The project will consist of a new 3-story cannabis facility (occupied by a dispensary, cultivation rooms, manufacturing facility and distribution ) constructed out of steel frame, with insulated metal panel exterior and interior walls, and an open air parking garage below the structure. The total building footprint is approximately 4,712 SF and total site square footage is 41,894.20 SF.

Terra-Petra will be consulting on all mitigation matters relative to the site, including methane testing, laboratory testing, methane mitigation system design, construction administration support, and DMBI inspections to be in compliance with City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) codes.

Methane Mitigation Design – Hub on Campus LA Figueroa

Terra-Petra is currently working with AMP Development to provide methane mitigation design and consulting services for the proposed new Hub on Campus LA Figueroa, located in Los Angeles, CA.

The project will consist of the construction of a new 7-story commercial residential mixed-use development with 5,128 SF of commercial space and 157 residential dwelling units with a single level subterranean basement. The total building footprint is approximately 41,600 SF.

The scope of work includes methane mitigation design and permitting, and construction administration support (material submittal review, field sketches, Request for Information [RFI’s], and attending any specialized construction coordination conferences).
