The Metropolis is an exclusive new collection of residential towers, sky pools and parks, dining as well as a boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Positioned on 6.3 acres, the entire Metropolis site is part of a massive development of residential and commercial buildings around the Staples Center, which will have a great impact on the surrounding community.
“The Doka protection screens protect several levels supplying a hard barrier that not only secures the levels of any lose debris coming off the building but heightens production due to the worker having the sense of feeling that they are working in a controlled and contained environment. The working platform is another great asset to the protection screens and also provides a huge amount in savings, time and production. This keeps the construction of the structure in close quarters with each other by not having the crane go to the ground for everything that is involved for the cycle of the building.” Chris Neal, Superintendent, PENTA
