Cosm Team Tops Out Structural Steel on Hollywood Park Entertainment Venue

INGLEWOOD, CA — The Cosm at Hollywood Park team recently celebrated topping out the 62,000-square-foot entertainment venue’s structural steel. The Mayor of Inglewood and representatives from project partners SME Steel, Sasco, Murray Company, Anning-Johnson Company, Cosm, HKS, Wilson Meany, The Kroenke Group, CBRE, TEC, and Southwest Steel of California joined the Webcor team for a celebratory lunch and topping-out ceremony at the Cosm job site. All team members signed the final beam before witnessing its final placement atop the structure’s third level.

This milestone achievement was made possible by the early coordination efforts the team implemented in response to a few field-related issues that arose early on, said Assistant Superintendent Dawit Tekeste.

“We organized several meetings, including weekly structural working sessions with the design team and other trades as needed, and field coordination walks that have been critical to project success,” he said. “The steel working sessions were especially valuable because they gave us the opportunity to work through the majority of project issues before shop drawings and erection began.”

The positive working history shared between Webcor’s Cosm team has also been key to the project’s success. Several Webcor employees who delivered Fairmont Century Plaza and Hollywood Park Retail Phase 1 together have reunited to compose the Cosm team. The trust and collaboration built between team members on both the Fairmont and Hollywood Park projects positioned them for continued success on Cosm right from the start, said Superintendent Ryan Gerber.

“We have a really strong project team of Webcorians who have proven to work well together,” he said. “We mesh well with one another and each bring our individual strengths to the table.”

Now that steel welding/bolting and decking is complete, the team is roughing in the slab-on metal decks, as well as pouring the level three deck so they can work underneath the live deck and begin interior and exterior wall framing, which will involve several more trade partners.

Once complete, Cosm will feature a 60-foot, 12k resolution LED dome designed to immerse guests in the “front row” experience of live events such as games and concerts via Cosm’s Shared Reality technology. The entertainment venue, located adjacent to SoFi Stadium in Hollywood Park, will be the first of 100 that Cosm plans to develop worldwide.
