    Leave a Comment

    With the new year upon us, the team at Base Construction has been reflecting on 2016’s accomplishments while making our New Year’s resolutions and looking ahead toward what is sure to be an exciting, productive 2017.

    We had a lot to be thankful for this past year, as we were kept very busy working on a number of large-scale piping and construction projects for a wide range of industries. We were honored to be called upon yet again to work with UTC, SONOCO, Alcoa, PTG, BE Aerospace, 3M, and Karma Automotive and many others. We also constructed all parts of a co-generation power plant for Golden Road Brewery. This included the installation of water heater heat exchanger on top of the exhaust to ensure that every BTU would be used.

    The Base Construction team also had the opportunity to work on various industry-leading green initiatives focused on reducing the amount of power required to run particular systems, as well as capturing waste to redirect that energy.

    In looking ahead to the New Year, we will continue to focus on ways to improve our unmatched safety initiatives while keeping downtime to a minimum. In addition to continuing our weekly and monthly safety meetings — as well as daily meetings on all shutdowns and long shift projects — we will also be reevaluating our comprehensive Injury and Illness Prevention Program to ensure optimal worker health and safety.

    In 2017, we’ll be taking on new large-scale industrial projects in various areas, including:

    • Process piping
    • Concrete and slab
    • Structural steel fabrication and installation
    • Turnkey projects

    And finally, in the spirit of continual improvement, the team at Base Construction will also be looking for new ways in which to better service our customers. Working off-shifts and holidays to meet production schedules, we take pride in ensuring that our customers receive only the best.

    To that end, we would like to thank all of our wonderful clients for helping us grow, and we can’t wait to see the new challenges you bring to us in 2017. As always, if there are any ways in which we can better serve you in the New Year, reach out to us at any time or follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for the latest updates!

    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.

  4. 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.
