Austin Commercial

5901 W Century Blvd, Suite 600, Los Angeles, CA 90045

Austin Industries provides civil, commercial, and industrial construction services through its three proficient operating companies. One of these is Austin Commercial: it solely focuses on highly complicated commercial projects.

The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) is a good example. This project provided new Terminal Improvements at LAX to employ the new Automated People Mover (APM) system with the current terminals. Upgrades included another three-level facility with elevators, escalators, and stairs. There were other minor modifications and additions that included the restrooms, admission facility, and office space. Austin Commercial also added a pedestrian path with supporting structural provisions to connect TBIT Core to the future APM Station between Parking Structures 3 and 4.

Intricate projects like this one are entrusted to Austin Industries, given the fact that it is one of the largest general contractors based in the southern half of the U.S. It also maintains solid relationships with the construction industry’s top associations, including the Associated General Contractors of America, Associated Builders & Contractors, and the National Center for Construction Education & Research. The firm consistently ranks in the top 50 out of hundreds of contractors in the Engineering News-Record (ENR) list of the best.


MATT Construction

261 S Figueroa Street, Suite 120, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is a 394,000-square-foot property that is full of timeless Hollywood charm. Having Pierre-Yves Rochon, Perkins + Will, and Gensler as design architects, MATT Construction steadily executed a California streamlined modern style and an exterior of white stone curves, bronze accents, and floor-to-ceiling glass to this multi-awarded project. In 2018 alone, this project received the ENR Regional Best Project Award of Merit, the LABJ Commercial Real Estate Gold Award, and the LABC Architectural Award.

This development required MATT Construction to build two levels of reinforced concrete below-grade for back-of-house facilities, all-valet parking, and 13-level above-grade of post-tensioned concrete. The firm also renovated a new wing for the Beverly Hilton even as the hotel continued to operate.

By sticking to its core value of dedicating collaborative work and understanding the goals of a project, MATT Construction endured the challenges associated with the fast-track nature of this project. Its establishment of a harmonious balance between the owner’s objectives, the architect’s vision, and the construction’s feasibility has allowed the firm to complete this assignment with spectacular results.
