Project Profile: City of hope - House of Hope, Duarte, Calif. |
Contract Value: $68,200.00
In Febuary of 1939, the excutive director of the City of Hope proposed a new synagogue be built to serve the needs of patients and their families. Generous donors provided the funding for the new building and in July of 1940, construction was completed and the new sanctuary dedicated. After more than 70
years of service, major renovations were planned to perserve this landmark and return it to its original condition.
In May of 2011, A&F was selected as the electrical contractor for the complete renovation of the House of Hope memorial building at City of Hope, www.cityofhope.org, in Duarte, Ca. This 2,026 sq ft historical building required an all new electrical system including a new power panel, complete new lighting system, with new dimming lighting control and electrical support for the new HVAC systems. The owner also
wanted a state of the art audio/visual system and new low voltage controlled window shades for special
presentations and assemblies that are held within the sanctuary. A new fire alarm system was added for
safety and was connected to the existing campus-wide alarm system.
The existing building wiring was completely removed prior to installation of the new electrical system. While taking precautions to preserve the existing flooring, woodwork, memorials and hardware, A&F worked closely with the GC and several specialty trades to assure the new electrical system was installed
seamlessly with the preservation of the buildings many historical features. The finished project provided
the client with modern, state of the art building systems while maintaining the overall historical style and
architecture of the original sanctuary.
The project was commissioned and completed on time in January 2012.
