Portuguese Bend Land Slide Area

Ellis is assisting the City of Rancho Palos Verdes in administering abatement and demolition of various structures and utilities in the Portuguese Bend Land Slide area. 

During its initial study, Ellis identified damaged asbestos and lead paint in two structures, both of them badly damaged by the slow, inexorable movement of land in the area. Ellis submitted the required permit applications (“Procedure 5”) to the South Coast Air Quality Management District. 

With the City, we showed the work to and procured bids from 5 qualified contractors. Ellis is now administering the abatement, demolition and grading of the site on behalf of the city.
