The Walt Disney Company, together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, is a leading diversified international family entertainment and media enterprise with the following business segments: media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, consumer products and interactive media.
Disneyland Park, originally Disneyland, is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, opened on July 17, 1955. It is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney. It was originally the only attraction on the property; its name was changed to Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the expanding complex in the 1990s.
Walt Disney came up with the concept of Disneyland after visiting various amusement parks with his daughters in the 1930s and 1940s. He initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small. After hiring a consultant to help him determine an appropriate site for his project, Disney bought a 160-acre (65 ha) site near Anaheim in 1953. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955.
Since its opening, Disneyland has undergone a number of expansions and major renovations, including Downtown Disney's famed restaurants and shops. Builder Boy was contracted to install and maintain the monument signs leading into the Disney Downtown District.
For the last 100 years, the Long Beach Water Department has provided Long Beach residents with high-quality, reliable drinking water. Today, the department supplies water and sewer services to nearly half a million people in a service area that covers more than 50 square miles. In addition to providing core water and sewer services, the Long Beach Water Department is known for being one of the nation’s leaders in water conservation and environmental stewardship.
Builder Boy’s paint division, Paint Boy, was contracted by the Long Beach Water Department to paint all of the water department's piping and water tanks at it's groundwater treatment plant, one of the most modern water treatment facilities in the world and the largest groundwater treatment plant in the United States.
Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine serves the community with recreation programs and services are offered at 162 parks with 26 community centers, two historic sites, two major tennis centers, one of the busiest municipal golf systems in the country with five courses, the Long Beach Animal Care Services Bureau, the largest municipally operated marina system in the nation and six miles of beaches.
The Shoreline Marina opened in 1982 and features 1,624 slips for recreational boaters. Shoreline Marina is located between the Queen Mary and the Long Beach Convention Center, in the heart of downtown Long Beach. The facilities at Shoreline Marina include: boat slips ranging from 25’ to 90’; side tie dock space to 160’; on-site restricted boater parking; mailboxes for live aboard boaters; showers and restrooms; pump out stations; lockable dock boxes; security access to gangways; courtesy dock phones; on-site washers and dryers; fuel dock services; fee-based wi-fi services; on-site oil recycling; and 24-hour security patrols.
Shoreline Marina is nearby to Long Beach’s vibrant downtown, with an array of shopping, dining and entertainment options – many of which are in walking distance from the marina. Builder Boy is honored to have had two divisions, Paint Boy and Stucco Boy, work on this Long Beach landmark giving its beloved boat crane, flag poles, and light poles a new coat of paint to withstand the harsh salt water conditions and recondition the stucco of the stairway rails.
A park master plan developed in 1991 called for the removal of shuffleboard and croquet courts, and the addition of a basketball or tennis court, playground remodeling, hardscape improvements, a new beach stairway with bluff top seating/viewing and a walking path. The playground was renovated about 1996 with new equipment that meets federal American's with Disabilities Act changed requirements for accessibility, and playground safety. In 1998 the LA County Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond Act of 1992 funded a shade shelter. Builder Boy was contracted by the Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine department to paint the utility sheds, playground equipment and repair the restrooms at the park.
Fifteen acres of land purchased by the city of Long Beach, California in 1976 is what comprises a place known as DeForest Park. Here you can hike a nature trail, let the kids play on nearby playground equipment, or engage in any one of several interesting sports for which they have the requisite courts: basketball, volleyball, tennis, the list goes on and on. It is also home to the community recreation center where adult classes, teen and senior programs take place. Builder Boy was contracted to replace and paint the skylights.
The parks and recreation department is responsible for all adult and youth recreation classes and activities, city facilities maintenance (parks and city buildings) and certain landscaped medians throughout the City, special events and the Lomita Railroad Museum.
The City of Lomita Parks and Recreation Department also offers a wide variety of youth sports and activities throughout the year including coed soccer, cheerleading, junior golf, karate, tennis, gymnastics, baseball and dance classes.
Located along Eshelman Avenue just north of Lomita Boulevard, Lomita Park is the City's main park and is just over 7 acres in size. Lomita Park includes a gymnasium and community room available for rent for private parties. Builder Boy’s stucco division, Stucco Boy, was contracted to re-stucco the Tom Rico Recreation Center which houses the gymnasium and community room.
The Kress Building on Pine Avenue in Long Beach was the 152nd store in the Memphis-based Kress & Company empire. Not only did Kress believe in selling goods for less money, he was also committed to good store design and realized that vision in the architecture and interiors of his buildings. In another unprecedented move at the time, Kress employed an in-house architecture division to facilitate all the design details, from the exterior of the buildings to the lighting fixtures within. Now the historical Kress building in Downtown Long Beach is home to hundreds of residents and is great place to live and work.
The Kress Building was one of the very first loft conversions in Long Beach. Originally built in 1923, the building was home to the Kress Dime Store which closed in 1981. After sitting vacant for eleven years, in 1992 the building was restored, then converted into lofts. The building has been designated as a Historic Landmark by the city of Long Beach. Each loft in the Kress Building is unique. Sizes range from 900 to 2100 sq. ft. On the roof is a common area with spectacular views of the city. Builder Boy was contracted to repair and refinish the rusted catwalk outside of the building and bring it back up to code.
For 47 years, 9769 West Pico has been the "neighborhood market" to residents of Beverly Hills, Century City and West Los Angeles. The long history of being one of the finest meat markets in the area began when Owen Miller first opened Owen' s Market in 1967 and the location quickly became known as home to one of the best butchers in Los Angeles. While operating Owen' s Market, Mr. Miller counted some of the most iconic celebrities of our era as his regular customers and friends. The tradition was continued in 2011 when the property was re-opened as the Roxbury Market by Victor Manes who brought with him 25 years of experience as a master butcher.
Fast forwarding to present day, this neighborhood landmark continues to thrive as Yummy.com, a leading multi-channel grocery retailer that has offered same-day delivery to Los Angeles-area residents and businesses since 2002. Yummy Neighborhood Market offers a complete selection of fresh produce, fresh meat, freshly prepared foods, packaged, gourmet and organic groceries, liquor, beer & wine. We were excited to work with this well-known retailer and fill their commercial painting and exterior stucco needs at their Century City location.
