PRINTING INDUSTRY

Coast is in Chile

Last spring, Beard Equipment Company, sister company to Coast Machinery Movers, purchased a newspaper press line weighing in at over five hundred tons from The Los Angeles Times in Orange County. Through Beard Equipment’s marketing capabilities and contacts some components of the press were sold to El Mercurio, one of Chile’s largest newsletter companies, based in Santiago, Chile.

Coast Machinery Movers removed the decommissioned press with a special gantry system, a 50-ton tri-lifter and specialty mechanical work. Coast’s responsibility included prepping, dismantling, and loading into sea containers for overseas shipment. Components arrived in good condition to El Mercurio to be used for color enhancements for their daily publications. The dismantling of the press was completed on-time and under budget while utilizing innovative rigging techniques to maintain the integrity of surrounding commissioned press lines.

LA Times Project

After a heavy downpour of rain, off and on for several days, Coast Constructors completed a large scale equipment demolition and removal project for the LA Times in downtown Los Angeles. After a week of cutting and rigging in preparation for the scheduled crane lift, on Saturday, February 26, 2011, we were able to successfully complete the project.

With the help of a 250 ton crane located across the street from the LA Times South Building, Coast was able to remove 5 old fire suppression steel tanks from the roof of the LA Times downtown high-rise. The largest tanks measured approximately 8 feet in diameter by 23 feet long with weights ranging from 7,000 to 12,000 lbs. per tank.

Along with the tanks, Coast also removed an 8 foot by 30 foot microwave antenna from the 13th floor roof. After 10 hours of work and the removal of some air handler ductwork and other miscellaneous equipment, we were able to safely re-open Spring Street to traffic.

Pressroom Project

Coast Machinery Movers completed the construction of the Pressroom Build out Project for the Los Angeles Times located in Times Mirror Square in downtown Los Angeles.

The overall scope of the project was to convert the original pressroom, where the newspaper was printed for sixty years, into new multi-floor office areas. The various phases of the project included: the seismic strengthening of the original 1935 building, the installation of a three story superstructure within the confines of the original building, a new electrical substation and power distribution system, a new air conditioning system and the build out of over sixty thousand square feet of new offices.

The project was completed on schedule without disruption to the one thousand two hundred Times Mirror employees working in the immediate area.
