Boss Plumbing – Plumbers Los Angeles
Boss Plumbing, the Plumbers Los Angeles, is the plumber of choice for some of Los Angeles’ most prestigious museums. The Getty Center, in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, is a campus for the J. Paul Getty Trust founded by oilman J. Paul Getty. The $1.3 billion center, which opened on December 16, 1997, is also well known for its architecture, gardens, and views overlooking Los Angeles. The center sits atop a hill connected to a visitors’ parking garage at the bottom of the hill by a three-car, cable-pulled tram. The center draws 1.3 million visitors annually. Boss Plumbing, the Plumber in Los Angeles, strives to visit this many homes annually and offer the same quality service we have become known for.
Boss Plumbing, the Plumbers Los Angeles, has a number of locations throughout Southern California. The Getty Center is one of only two locations of the J. Paul Getty Museum. This branch of the museum specializes in “pre-20th-century European paintings, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, and decorative arts; and 19th- and 20th-century American and European photographs”. Among the works on display is the painting Irises by Vincent van Gogh. Besides the museum, the center’s buildings house the Getty Research Institute (GRI), the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, and the administrative offices of the J. Paul Getty Trust, which owns and operates the center. The center also has outdoor sculptures displayed on terraces and in gardens. Designed by architect Richard Meier, the campus includes a central garden designed by artist Robert Irwin. GRI’s separate building contains a research library with over 900,000 volumes and two million photographs of art and architecture. The center’s design included special provisions to address concerns regarding earthquakes and fires. Likewise, Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumber, installs many earthquake shut off valves for customers who want to take necessary precautions in an earthquake prone area like Southern California.
Boss Plumbing, the Plumbers Los Angeles, was first started in Los Angeles in 1989. Originally, the Getty Museum started in J. Paul Getty’s house located in Pacific Palisades in 1954. He expanded the house with a museum wing. In the 1970s, Getty built a replica of an Italian villa on his home’s property to better house his collection, which opened in 1974. After Getty’s death in 1976, the entire property was turned over to the Getty Trust for museum purposes. However, the collection outgrew the site, which has since been renamed the Getty Villa, and management sought a location more accessible to Los Angeles. The purchase of the land upon which the center is located, a campus of 24 acres (9.7 ha) on a 110-acre (45 ha) site in the Santa Monica Mountains above Interstate 405, surrounded by 600 acres (240 ha) kept in a natural state, was announced in 1983. The site cost $25 million. The top of the hill is 900 feet (270 m) above I-405, high enough that on a clear day it is possible to see not only the Los Angeles skyline but also the San Bernardino Mountains and San Gabriel Mountains to the east as well as the Pacific Ocean to the west. Boss Plumbing, the Plumber in Los Angeles, operates trucks that can be seen on a clear day servicing homes and business from Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Burbank (as well as many areas in between).
Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumbers, was first started in 1989 as a family owned and operated small business. Similarly, in 1984, Richard Meier was chosen to be the architect of the center. After an extensive conditional-use permit process, construction by the Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Companybegan in August 1989. The construction was significantly delayed, with the planned completion date moved from 1988 to 1995 (as of 1990). By 1995, however, the campus was described as only “more than halfway complete”. Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumber, strives to see all projects and jobs to completion and will gladly stand behind work provided.
When Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumbers, first opened in 1989, it was proud to offer the public an alternative choice to the stereotypical sloppy and unprofessional plumber. The center finally opened to the public on December 16, 1997. Although the total project cost was estimated to be $350 million as of 1990, it was later estimated to be $1.3 billion. After the center opened, the villa closed for extensive renovations and reopened on January 28, 2006, to focus on the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. Currently, the museum displays collections at both the Getty Center and the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumber, additionally services the Pacific Palisades area.
Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumbers, works closely within the framework of building and safety requirements. In 2005, after a series of articles in the Los Angeles Times about the spending practices of the Getty Trust and its then-president Dr. Barry Munitz, the California Attorney General conducted an investigation of the Getty Trust and found that no laws had been broken. The trust agreed to appoint an outside monitor to review future expenditures. The Getty Trust experienced financial difficulties in 2008 and 2009 and cut 205 of 1,487 budgeted staff positions to reduce expenses. Although the Getty Trust endowment reached $6.4 billion in 2007, it dropped to $4.5 billion in 2009. Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumber, utilizes a flat price system which insures that customers know prices up front and are charged fairly.
Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumbers, operates out of various locations that include office space and warehouse space. The museum building consists of a three-level base building that is closed to the public and provides staff workspace and storage areas. Five public, two-story towers on the base are called the North, East, South, West and the Exhibitions Pavilions. The Exhibitions Pavilion acts as the temporary residence for traveling art collections and the Foundation’s artwork for which the permanent pavilions have no room. The permanent collection is displayed throughout the other four pavilions chronologically: the north houses the oldest art while the west houses the newest. The first-floor galleries in each pavilion house light-sensitive art, such as illuminated manuscripts, furniture, or photography. Computer-controlled skylights on the second-floor galleries allow paintings to be displayed in natural light. The second floors are connected by a series of glass-enclosed bridges and open terraces, both of which offer views of the surrounding hillsides and central plaza. Sculpture is also on display at various points outside the buildings, including on various terraces and balconies. The lower level (the highest of the floors in the base) includes a public cafeteria, the terrace cafe, and the photography galleries. Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumber, understands that plumbing in these public areas must be maintained in order to keep the visitors to the museum comfortable.
Boss Plumbing, the Los Angeles Plumbers, really appreciates the Getty Center and encourages all to visit.
