What Is an Industrial Contractor?
An industrial contractor is a company that that manages, oversees, and handles the construction, maintenance, repair, renovation, relocation, repurposing, and demolition of industrial facilities, such as warehouses, factories, plants, and many more. Typical responsibilities include acquiring the necessary permits, coordinating with subcontractors, and maintaining the project budget. From aerospace and automotive to plastic and steel manufacturing, these companies are employed throughout a wide range of industries for many large-scale projects.
At Base Construction, we offer industrial contractor services for all types of industrial projects. Equipped with over two decades of industry experience and an extensive range of industrial licenses and certifications, our team is fully capable of meeting and exceeding customer needs with the highest quality project solutions.
Industrial Contractor Services at Base Construction
We provide an extensive selection of contractor services to suit various industrial projects. Our capabilities include the following:
Process Piping Design and Installation
Within industrial facilities, process piping serves a number of functions. In addition to facilitating HVAC and plumbing operations, it enables industry professionals to convey the materials needed for manufacturing processes to various points within the shop floor.
For facilities that employ piping for the latter purpose, we offer full-service solutions that fully comply with all applicable industrial codes. Our process piping services include:
- Pipe routing design and implementation
- Pipe material selection
- Manual and control valve selection
- Piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID) development and implementation
- Pipe installation
- Pipe design support and installation
- Pipe testing
- Pipe painting and labeling
- Pipe insulation and heat tracing
Office Construction and Renovation
We’ve constructed and renovated offices for customers in a variety of industries. In addition to ensuring the spaces are as safe, accessible, and functional as possible, our team ensures we finish the project on time and on budget.
The American Disabilities Act dictates that all industrial facilities—with certain exceptions—must have ADA compliant restrooms. We offer restroom renovation services that focus specifically on bringing older and non-compliant bathrooms up to standards, as well as improving the aesthetic quality.
Concrete Foundation and Slab Design, Installation, Repair, and Restoration
In any construction project, a strong foundation is key. Any weak spots increase the risk of needing costly repairs or replacement in the future.
For customers looking to avoid these consequences, we offer the following concrete foundation and slab services:
- Design and calculation of structural specifications for new constructions or existing building modifications
- Repair and restoration
Structural Steel Fabrication and Installation
Structural steel is used in the fabrication of many building and construction components. Typical products include beams, rails, bars, ladders, catwalks, machine guarding, both permanent and portable platforms, tank anchoring, support systems, embedment for foundations, and many more.
Our expert team offers cost-effective structural steel fabrication and installation services for a wide range of industrial projects. Examples include handrails, pipe bridges, platforms, and component repair and restoration.
Turnkey Projects and Other Services
Our team offers turnkey project solutions, managing every step from start to finish to ensure we satisfy functional and aesthetic requirements, remain within budget, and facilitate long-term customer objectives and business goals. Whether a customer needs to expand their operations floor, add a new production line, renovate existing areas, and/or demolish certain facility areas, we are well-equipped to handle it.
Mechanical Equipment Services
Both proper selection and proper installation are critical to ensuring mechanical equipment functions as intended. For customers needing assistance with new or existing equipment, we offer mechanical equipment services to ensure it is installed safely and correctly. Some of the industrial equipment we work with includes air compressors, boilers, chillers, compressors, conveyors, cooling towers, evaporators, fans, generators, pumps, pressure vessels, and tanks.
In addition to improving the aesthetic quality of equipment and facility structures, paints and coatings can enhance their functional properties and performance. For example, depending on the formulation, they may add corrosion resistance to increase a surface’s durability, fireproofing to reduce the risk of a fire starting and spreading, or reflective properties to decrease the heat absorption rate to save on cooling costs.

Regardless of the project environment, our team has the knowledge and skills to get the project done and done right. Some of the industrial facilities in which our past projects have taken place include:
- Aerospace facilities
- Battery factories
