← Back to Los Angeles Trade Tech College


Los Angeles Trade Tech College (LATCC) was founded in 1925 as the Frank Wiggins Trade School and is the oldest of the nine public two-year colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD). LATTC services the entire 882 square miles within the Los Angeles Community College District. Built as one of two buildings that form the front door of the college facing Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, the Technology Instruction Building is the largest facility on the campus. It’s designed as a three-story 139,000 square-foot training center.

Cannon provided civil engineering plans, specifications, and estimates for a three-story Construction Technology building, a six-level parking structure, on-site and off-site infrastructure improvements for utility relocation, street vacations, and intersection improvements. The project included a construction yard, vacation of two public streets, and street rehabilitation to provide site improvements to support this new facility.  This project also included the relocation of existing water and sewer lines in 22nd Street, 23rd  Street, and Olive Street.  Infrastructure included improvements to Grand Avenue for street rehabilitation, new curb, sidewalks, pedestrian crossing, and traffic signal modification.

As a result of street vacations, Cannon needed to reroute existing sewer lines, which required a sewer capacity study, relocation of 600 feet of existing 8-inch on-site sewer line and up-sizing 900 feet of existing 8-inch to 12-inch sewer line along 22nd Street.  The project also required preparation of plans, specifications, cost estimates, and obtaining approval through the City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Engineering and the Bureau of Sanitation.

This project provided accessibility features in the building interiors and in the path of travel. The added features allowed for equal physical access for students, personnel, and visitors. Equal accessibility enabled students to fully participate in college programs, services, and activities. Also Included were grading plans, sewer, a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), domestic water, and fire water plans as well as off-site public improvements that required review and permitting by the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Education (DOE), and Department of Water and Power (DWP).
