Upon completion of Phase 1 in 2018, AltaSea will be a 35-acre urban ocean-based research facility, located at City Dock #1 at the Port of Los Angeles. This 100-year old City Dock was previously in disrepair and unsuitable for public use. AltaSea will redevelop the dock into a range of facilities, including laboratories, auditoriums, classrooms, businesses and free open public spaces for visitors to enjoy.
This project will provide a space for collaboration amongst scientists, universities and businesses working to solve marine- and ocean-related problems, particularly those with a significant socio-economic impact to the Los Angeles area.
Beyaz & Patel, Inc. is provided the preliminary structural design of various facilities, including laboratories, auditoriums, classrooms, and free open public spaces.
