      The Civic-Recreational-Industrial Authority of City of Industry selected Ehm Architecture to design this facility in 1998. The new structural roof cover provides a venue for all-weather events, which includes concerts, car and boat shows, spots events and the City’s annual charity rodeo. The existing 5,700-seat arena was master planned to allow for an increase of 5,000 seats as bookings increase. The project is part of the Industry Hills Resort, which won the Civil Engineering Achievement of the Year Award in 1982 for its reclamation of a former landfill in the Los Angeles basin.

  • Seattle Temporary Fire Station 31
    Seattle, Washington
    -

      We were awarded a contract in 2007 to provide architectural services to the City’s Fleets and Facilities Department (FDD), being responsible for five temporary fire stations. The Department was charged with developing interim fire stations while existing neighborhood fire stations are being remodeled or rebuilt. The apparatus was housed in sprung structures similar to those used at the Cruise Ship Terminal South Berth. The interim station site for Fire Station 31 in Northgate is comprised of a vacant lot and a lot with an abandoned house that was demolished to accommodate the station. The site is located directly across Northgate Way form the permanent station. An adjacent church owns and is leasing the property to FFD. The project required interaction with Fleets and Facilities Department, their real estate division, Seattle Fire Department, Seattle City Light, Seattle Department of Transportation and Seattle Public Utilities. The unique nature of the interim station also required considerable coordination with City of Seattle Fleets and Facilities project management and senior staff with Department of Planning and Development.

  • Portwood Pier Plaza Reroofing Project
    -

      San Diego Unified Port District engaged us to provide Architectural and Engineering Services for this project in 2013. The roofing system of the original building failed, resulting in moisture intrusion and water damage in several retail tenant spaces. Latent flaws in the original design by another firm necessitated a Facility Condition Assessment, including intrusive investigation, flood testing and recommendations for mitigation of the design issues. The Port elected to have us redesign the roof structure according to our recommendations, and to completely reroof the entire building. We were also engaged in 2014 to perform an ADA Compliance Assessment for the adjacent pier.

  • D'Evolve Community Center

    -

      Our entry in the Global Green Competition for New Orleans was focused on utilization of Randal Ehm’s fiberglass housing unit. The initial product, which is in the form of an Indian tipi, was developed for Russell Means . Mr. Means co-founded the American Indian Movement in the 1970’s. This proposal suggests incorporation of buoyant hulls into the design of the homes, so that in a flood the homes would not flood and could be retrieved if dislodged from their anchorages. In this design scheme, modular tipis serve as the single-family residential component. The community center is designed utilizing the existing tipi forms as building corners, with new straight panels designed to create the larger building enclosures. This entry was exhibited in New Orleans, New York and Washington DC as part of Global Green’s public awareness campaign on sustainable design and green building principles. The tipi project is currently in the patenting process, with the 3-story prototype having been built on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
