Lucas Museum of Narrative Art Construction

Lucas Museum of Narrative Art

The historic Exposition Park in South Los Angeles will serve as the future home of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.  As part of our investment to this community, the Lucas Museum in partnership with our general contractor, Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company, is committed to providing contracting opportunities for diverse businesses.  Our aim is to enable businesses owned by women, minorities, and/or disabled veterans, along with small businesses, to participate in the successful construction of the museum in a manner consistent with the project labor agreement.

Although this project is privately-financed with no public subsidies, Hathaway Dinwiddie’s objective is to meet and surpass local, state, and federal government standards for diversity and inclusion. Therefore, Hathaway Dinwiddie has instructed all trades and/or subcontractors to make every effort to maximize opportunities to engage certified MBE/WBE/DVBE/SBEs not only in material supply and project labor, but also in technical and management roles on the project.

As part of this competitive bidding process, no contractor or vendor should be discouraged or dissuaded from participating in the bid proposal process if they are not certified, or do not meet the definition of a “diverse business.”  Please contact us for more information on how participation performance will be measured, or if you have any questions.  We are happy to provide assistance and guidance on how your business might take part in this project.

 

Project Statement Regarding COVID-19

Hathaway Dinwiddie places the highest value on the health, safety and well-being of our employees, sub-contractors, business partners and the communities where we conduct our business. We are committed to being prepared for the challenges that COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) continues to present. In our continuing response to the current situation, we have directed, our office employees and non-supervisory administrative staff to work remotely.

We are following all state and local health orders while supporting our on-site supervisors and trades in their responsibility to practice careful protection practices for any work being performed. As we have continued to monitor and assess the situation, the necessity to take every possible precaution to create a safe working environment has become clear.  With the guidance of government leaders, national and local health departments, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our site will temporarily suspend operations for a two-week period. This time will provide our trade partners the opportunity to prepare and ensure they are in compliance with the CDCs safety recommendations.  Once construction recommences, we will continue to require employees and trades to put everyone’s health first as it relates to COVID-19 and to stay home if experiencing any symptoms.

Though we are scheduled to resume work on Tuesday, April 7th, Hathaway Dinwiddie is consistently managing and monitoring this situation. As circumstances change, we will endeavor to provide timely updates about any impact to our project. As difficult as this situation is for everyone, we believe that by following the guidance of health experts, as well as best practices and government directives, we will all get through this together.
