Walgreens Santa Fe Springs

Project: Walgreens
Location: Santa Fe Springs, CA
Type: Retail Warehouse

After having completed dozens of pharmacy/retail buildings in our history, this was Licha Construction's first Walgreens. Due to the age of the area, and the high density of buildings and utilities, extensive underground utility work needed to be completed. Before aboveground construction could begin, the dirt site became a maze of shoring plates and trenches as utilities were replaced, relocated, and added. Since this project, the developer has requested Charles Licha Construction to bid all other Walgreens. Construction was smooth arriving on time and on budget.

Along with extensive site redevelopment (previous location of a gas station), Licha construction performed many street/city upgrades at this site. The detail and care that Licha Construction puts into their work is evident every time one visits this center. The architect was KKE Architects Inc. of Pasadena.
