NORTON AIR FORCE BASE REUSE CONTRACT AWARDED TO LOS ANGELES FIRM

NORTON AIR FORCE BASE REUSE CONTRACT AWARDED TO LOS ANGELES FIRM
 Leading Los Angeles-based architects Johnson Fain and Pereira Associates have been awarded the much-sought urban design contract to oversee the conversion of the 50-year-old Norton Air Force Base to civilian use. The firm will spend the next six months studying the base and crafting development plans to replace the 10,000 jobs lost by the military's decision to close the base in March 1994. The 400-acre site, just east of San Bernardino, Calif., will be converted into a major commercial and industrial development.
 The award concluded nearly a two-year search by the Inland Valley Development Agency which interviewed 27 teams.
 The firm's urban design skills have been demonstrated in the master plan of the 93,000-acre master plan of the city of Irvine and Los Angeles International Airport. The firm also has designed an urban plan for Central City West and for the major landowners of Warner Center in Los Angeles. Johnson Fain and Pereira has also designed a number of landmark buildings, from San Francisco's Transamerica Pyramid to Los Angeles' Fox Plaza.
 Other members on the Johnson Fain and Pereira team are ASL Consulting Engineers; Emmet L. Wemple Associates; Hamilton, Rabinovitz & Alschuler Inc.; Aviation Systems Associates; Mittlehauser Corp.; and Linscott, Law and Greenspan.
 Bill Fain, FAIA, is available for immediate interview and discussion on the firm's winning proposal. He can be reached at 213-933-8341.
