  1. Large-Scale Industrial Construction Projects in California Need Concrete Foundations and Concrete Slabs

    Leave a Comment

    All indications and reports are showing that California’s commercial and industrial construction activity is continuing to grow, rising to Base Construction Pipe Image 2levels the state hasn’t seen in almost 15 years. Earlier this year, one report from research firm CMD cited 10 of the largest upcoming California construction projects, including industrial projects, government buildings, sports and entertainment complexes, medical buildings, office buildings, educational buildings, and other large-scale construction projects. Some of the construction projects on the list are located in Southern California, while others are scattered throughout the state. Any way you look at it, the state is buzzing with construction activity, and all of these construction projects need concrete foundations and concrete slabs!

    A few months ago, an ENRCalifornia construction activity report said, “The commercial, public transit and health care sectors top the annual ranking of large-scale projects to begin construction in California.” The same report also cited large-scale constructions projects in Southern California saying, “In Southern California, work proceeds rapidly on the $1-billion Metropolis mixed-use development in downtown Los Angeles, which includes a 19-story hotel and three residential towers between 38 and 54 stories,” and, “Metro in Los Angeles has two transit projects in the top five starts, together worth nearly $3.5 billion. A pair of terminal upgrades at Los Angeles International Airport totals nearly $1 billion, and more work lies ahead for the facility…” And don’t forget about the construction of the 70,000-seat NFL stadium in Carson!Base Construction Recent Project Image 1

    Another report revealed that commercial and industrial construction activity in California is more active than it’s been in more than a decade. The survey reported, “During the second half of last year, the average value of newly issued permits for nonresidential construction—adjusted for inflation—was at its highest level since 2001.” All of these construction projects, whether we’re talking about stadiums, airports, industrial complexes, or any other facilities, require solid concrete foundations and concrete slabs, and that’s where we fit in.

    Base Construction is all about foundations and slabs (plus a whole lot more) including all types of industrial contracting and industrial projects. Process piping, structural steel fabrication, installation, and mechanical equipment projects are among the many projects we design and manage.

    So, let’s talk more about the topic of concrete foundations and concrete slabs: At Base Construction, we use professional engineers (PE) to design all of our concrete projects. Then we do what is needed – saw cut, core drill, excavate, form, install rebar and pour proper-strength concrete – to do the job right. Additionally, we’ll evaluate an existing concrete foundation and determine if it needs Base Construction Recent Project Image 2some fixing to add more strength and to extend its life in order to save any unnecessary excavation and cost.

    In addition to constructing concrete foundations, we set industrial equipment and machinery, furnaces and more in concrete or on concrete slabs; providing solid concrete bases to stand on. That’s not all! We also handle concrete demolition and excavation, working with engineers to ensure that demo is done safely and properly.

    Since 1998, Base Construction has completed hundreds of concrete foundation and concrete slab projects.

  2. Going the Extra Mile for our clients!

    BASECONST Standing out in today’s competitive industrial construction industry takes more than a little effort. To gain and keep customers you need more than just one effort. High-quality products and competitive prices are an absolute must, but they won’t do it alone. In the end, you need to go the extra mile to take care of your customers and their needs. It’s hard to believe, but not everyone understands that to succeed you need to make it “all about the customer.”

    BASECONST2Since our founding in 1998, Base Construction has succeeded not only by offering the finest products and services, but also by making total customer satisfaction our first priority. Whether it is process piping, concrete foundation and slab work, or structural steel fabrication and installation, the experts at Base Construction achieve a unique balance between quality, price, and customer service.

    A perfect example of this winning formula is a recent job we are doing for the folks at CONSARC, based in New Jersey, the Vacuum engineering experts who makes products such as VAR (Vacuum Arc Remelting).  CONSARC contacted Base Construction to work on a critical aerospace project. Without the guarantee of work, many companies might have settled with a phone call or even an email, but that is not how Base works. We understood how important this project was for CONSARC, so we immediately jumped on a plane and flew across the country from our Buena Park, California headquarters to Rancocas, New Jersey. Not only did this provide us with a look at the project, but it also reassured them that we had the expertise to get the job done right. We truly believe our actions proved to CONSARC that we are small enough to give customers a high-level of personal attention while being big enough to meet all of their requirements.

    In the end, going the extra mile worked, and we are extremely proud of our partnership with CONSARC.

We promise we will always go the extra mile for you!
