The House Ear Institute

The House Ear Institute, located at 2100 West 3 rd Street in Los Angeles CA , was originally established in 1946 as a private non-profit hearing research & educational facility. Since its inception, the Institute has grown from a rented one-person office to a five story building. The House Ear Institute is engaged in the scientific exploration of the auditory system. HEI scientists continue to explore hearing loss and ear disease at the cell and molecular level, and the complex relationship between the ear and brain. They are also working to improve hearing aids and auditory implants, diagnostics, clinical treatments and intervention methods. The House Ear Institute's current five-story facility accommodates more than 22 departments. The recent growth of their research and studies has prompted the development of a new expansion to the facility with the construction of a new wing, scheduled for completion in 2007. VNSM was contracted to install the general sheet metal, metal panels and louvers at the mechanical room exteriors and the new wing's building expansion joints. A collective effort between VNSM, its vendors and General Contractor Rudolph and Sletten is needed to procure our materials in a timely manner and to meet the House Ear Institute's construction milestones. This project will stand as a testament to VNSM's ability to coordinate work within the parameters of today's aggressive construction environment.
