The Corgan Culver City Office Relocation was a four-month project to create a new space to serve as Corgan’s new main Los Angeles office. The 7,500-square-foot space offers scenic views throughout and a patio space on the sixth floor overlooking the West Los Angeles skyline. The office is located minutes from LAX and within a mile from Silicon Beach, where both the day and night life are growing at an exponential rate.
The owner served as the architect, and our established relationship through previous projects with Corgan led to a very successful tenant improvement project. The space encompasses the culture of Culver City while still exemplifying Corgan’s identity as a distinguished global architecture and design firm. The office space has a mix of modern and bright colors that accent the abstract art, furniture, and structures that exist throughout. The office creates an environment of its own that is nothing like your typical workplace–complete with Corgan’s signature yellow branding that is present throughout the office.
When the project began, a hard deadline of mid-December 2018 was put in place because the firm needed to relocate from their office in Playa Vista by the beginning of 2019. In order to meet this timeline, Swinerton built a tight construction schedule and set procurement deadlines with no room for setbacks. To top off the tight schedule, there was limited loading access and limited working hours due to the minimal area availability for material staging. This put an even heavier emphasis on the need for strong coordination and planning multiple steps ahead to avoid any unnecessary delays. With the noise constraints on the project, it benefited Swinerton to have our self-perform demolition group on board. The demolition team was able to work around the limited hours to get the space ready for our team of experienced subcontractors to enter the space and get their scope of work done without any delays.
