Shawmut Design and Construction Announces Los Angeles Office

Establishment of L.A. Office Adds to Shawmut's Presence on the West Coast

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2013) - Shawmut Design and Construction is announcing the establishment of its newest office, located at 5670 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. With offices in Boston, New York City, Las Vegas, and Providence, Shawmut is widely regarded as the preferred builder for the world's most popular and exclusive brands.

Shawmut has been recently awarded construction of four flagships on Rodeo Drive including Ermenegildo Zegna, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, and Tory Burch. Shawmut has been active in California since 1995 and has built more than 75 projects in the area, including 10 of the 15 flagships located in San Francisco's Union Square. Shawmut's market share has steadily increased over the past few years leading to the launch of the L.A. office.

"Shawmut has serviced the needs of West Coast clients for the past 18 years, and opening our new office in Los Angeles will help us better service our existing clients and continue to aggressively grow our market share," said Les Hiscoe, Chief Operating Officer. "Our L.A. team will be a mix of Los Angeles-based hires and employees who relocated from our Boston and New York offices. This allows us to have local ties to the market as well as bring the Shawmut culture and value proposition to the West Coast."

In preparation of the L.A. office opening, Shawmut acquired Porzio Inc and named Leonard Porzio Senior Project Manager. Porzio will join Walter Carucci, Project Executive and Jay Gibson, Director of Business Development. The Los Angeles team is currently in construction on Christofle, Barneys and Santa Anita Park. Shawmut has also recently completed seven flagship stores on Rodeo Drive, Nobu Malibu, Nikita Malibu, and Del Frisco's Grille in Santa Monica.

Shawmut is renowned for the construction of award-winning flagship stores, fine dining establishments, and elite academic institutions nationwide. Notable clients include Apple, Louis Vuitton, Le Bernardin, The Waldorf Astoria, Harvard University, and Yale University.

Shawmut Design and Construction is expected to generate in excess of $850 million in revenue in 2013 within the Academic, Tenant Interiors, Historic, Healthcare, Hotel, Restaurant, Retail, and Sports Venues sectors.

Founded in Boston in 1982, Shawmut has grown to employ more than 900 people nationwide.
