Multiple Competencies
Case Study

We had an incredibly complicated project that involved engineering, fabrication, erection, and required a City of Los Angeles contractors license.

Client Concern

Customer wanted to install a “statement” clock-tower at their building in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. They needed a supplier that could design, fabricate, permit, and erect this structure.


Excelsior Solution

  • Worked with the customers design team, structural engineer, glass designer, and the City of Los Angeles to obtain permit approval. 

  • Fabrication and construction required the use of modeling software and automated cutting (LT8) in order to create the complicated shapes which would be nearly impossible with traditional fabrication methods. 

  • Detailed measurements were taken in order to fit onto existing embeds in the building and foundation as well as connect to sub-contractor’s glass panels. 

  • Use of trusted sub-contractors allowed the main structure to be transported and installed in one piece to minimize the impact on the customers schedule and the local community. 

  • City of Los Angeles approved fabrication shop certificate was obtained.

  • Several field employees obtained City of Los Angeles welding certificates.   


After many hour of shutting down a major Los Angeles through-way, the client had a beautiful new landmark in Los Angeles, that both the property owner, and the developer will use to market their property into the future.
