The Scotty Building is a 2–story Office building earthquake rebuild project for a private owner budgeted to use only received insurance funds. The 34,000 S.F. building had to maintain the original footprint and height while being brought up to all current codes, including the reconstruction of the bridge connecting the existing 5 story building. Our services ranged from programming to construction administration and included the design of a state-of-the-art, energy efficient building which was completed in January 1996.
James Heimler Architect, Inc. won The AIA SFV Citation Award and numerous accolades from The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power for the energy-saving design modifications made to the building.
