    When it comes to your industrial construction projects, look no July 2016 Blog Imagefurther than Base Construction Inc. The professionals here at Base work on all types of industrial projects, including process piping, concrete foundations, slabs, structural steel fabrication, installation, turnkey projects, mechanical equipment, base work through build up and safety with our machines and employees. Our many capabilities in the industrial construction field make us experts in the industry.

    Today, we’re highlighting one of our biggest practices: the setting of general and specialty mechanical equipment. Our company has the ability to set large pieces such as air compressors, a wide range of tanks, filters, pressurized vessels, boilers, chillers, generators, heat exchangers, reactors, a variety of pumps, furnaces, louvers, and more. Due to our vast experience, we can install your needs to the necessary specifications.

    Alongside setting equipment means working with huge, heavy pieces to fit into small spaces. We collectively work to complete this work in the fastest, most practical manner. On a recent job from our customer in New Jersey, we successfully spaced a massive furnace that needed to be fit for one of these small areas in Southern California plant. Even from California, our quality efforts make us reliable for all cities in the industry.

    Base Construction is the perfect answer for complicated, hard to reach projects. Not only can we professionally install mostly any type of equipment, but we take the time to ensure all necessary requirements are met. Should you need help with mechanical equipment setting, replacement, or integration of existing equipment, we will work with you to get you up and running.

    Regardless of the size of your project, equipment, or needs, the industry experts at Base Construction can get the job done. Reach out to one of our professionals for any industrial construction project you might have.

  2. Don’t Overlook Potential Problems! Now is the Time for End of Year Repairs

    Even though the temps are cooling down, it’s still hard to accept that winter is right around the corner. The cold temperatures that old man winter blows in are chilling to us, but could be disastrous to mechanical or structural equipment that may have been neglected since last winter. Many business and industrial sites deal with problems or issues as they arise, and, while this might seem like the only way it should be done, there are ways to try and prevent problems from happening in the first place.

    Since we are heading into the roughest season of the year in some Nov. Blog Image 2015parts of the country, now is the ideal time to consider predictive maintenance techniques. Even if the temperatures in your area stay moderate for most of the year, it is still a good time of year to focus on maintenance and repairs.

    Predictive maintenance (PdM) is used to determine the condition of equipment and predict when certain maintenance procedures should be performed. For most of us, we already do something like this with our cars: manufacturers know the working life of parts such as timing belts and will issue a guideline on when the belt should be replaced to avoid serious issues if the belt were to break. The OEM is predicting how long the belt will work so that preventative maintenance (PM) can be performed before disaster strikes.

    PdM and PM techniques may seem like a waste of time, but creating a timeline and schedule for equipment review and repair will keep systems in industrial sites in good condition year round. During routine maintenance larger problems may be discovered that require outside resources to fix. At Base Construction, our experience and expertise in process piping, concrete, and structural steel for industrial manufacturing operations allows us to take on many different kinds of projects.

    With a team of skilled engineers we can help you with reviewing Nov. Blog Image 2 2015systems and processes to make sure equipment stays in good condition. If PdM and PM find a problem, Base Construction offers important services and capabilities to help you make repairs. These include:

    • Pipe fabrication and installation of process piping in the manufacturing industry.
    • Insulation and heat tracing.
    • Concrete foundation and slab evaluation, design, and installation for mechanical systems
    • Structural steel fabrication and installation services
    • Turnkey projects for new and expanding industrial operations
    • Mechanical equipment setting

    This is the ideal time to perform end of year reviews and repairs to prevent downtime and future problems. Contact us today to learn more about end of year maintenance and repairs.

  3. 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. Visit our website for a complete list of the concrete services we offer and to see photos of some of the large-scale projects we’ve recently completed in Southern California.
