  1. Looking Forward to the Year Ahead

    Leave a Comment

    The start of the New Year has us prepping for upcoming work that has been contracted for, but not yet underway. This year looks to be busy with projects, both big and small, large scope and narrow focus, lastly, Base Construction 2016 Image 1challenging and routine.

    While we can’t give away too many details, we can relay an idea of what types of projects we will be working on in 2016. The first on the docket is the installation of a second vacuum oven for a leading aerospace company. For this project we designed all of the piping and installation from start to finish. We had originally installed a single oven, for our returning customer, last winter. Their extreme approval of our previous work resulted in our return for this turnkey project and we look forward to getting started!

    Another returning customer (a government company that cannot be named) has awarded us further contracting for valves, instrumentation, and other mechanical devices. Why? Because they know Base Construction has the experienced staff to handle the ins and outs of the project. We will be handling equipment orders such as valves and necessary instrumentation. Beyond that, an in-house mechanical engineer will confirm the design so that the installation team can sanction that everything is in place. This type of service ensures that, once on site, unforeseen problems will not occur.

    We’ve, once again, been awarded a separate project inside of a food facility. The job requires the replacement of existing carbon steel floors, with 316 stainless steel floors in a total of 14 rooms. At the completion of this development our client will produce different food product only accessible through stainless steel flooring and platforms.

    To wrap things up, we would like to note several smaller jobs on the horizon. Our team is working on piping projects, safety related projects, and updates to conform to new OSHA requirements. One of our leading projects is the installation of safety equipment from Alcoa. Items such as guards and handrails for equipment, fall prevention devices, key-access ladders, and custom made security equipment will be fitted. Our capabilities also enable us to replace broken asphalt and concrete to prevent tripping hazards and various dangerous situations.

    This coming year will find us as at locations all over SoCal, working on projects to improve processes, equipment, and facilities.
