This project for the University of Southern California (USC) involved the demolition of the Fluor Tower on their campus in Los Angeles. Fluor Tower was an 11 story dormitory that had been vacant since 2020 after Covid forced all of the students to leave. According to USC, the demolition is part of the University’s capital construction plan, and they have not determined the ultimate use of the space. This construction work included 90,185 square feet of exterior and interior abatement of the penthouse, roof, walls, fixtures, finishes, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. Since Fluor Tower was located in an extremely tight site next to other buildings that would remain, the structural demolition was a very complex process and required perimeter protection using a 275 ton hydro crane with a demo screen and secondary scaffolding, plywood, and k-rail protection measures.
