Western Specialty Contractors Nearing Completion of Facade Restoration for Future Academy Museum of Motion Pictures
Crews from Western Specialty Contractors’ Los Angeles and Seattle branches are hard at work performing stone restoration and installing new limestone and granite on the iconic Saban Building, the future home of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in L.A. Western is currently complete with 90% of the facade restoration work, which includes making limestone and granite Dutchman repairs, applying waterproofing, repairing window frames, and patching and cleaning the stone. Constructed in 1939, the Saban Building is located on Wilshire and Fairfax next to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art campus, and is listed as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures is scheduled to open in 2019. Photo courtesy of Western Specialty Contractors.
