Concrete Floor Gets Concrete Construction Work Done in Santa Fe Springs

With over 20 years of experience in the construction business we know what it takes to complete any concrete construction project while satisfying the needs of our customers. We recently took on a small project in Santa Fe Springs, where we had to remove a small concrete slab and replace it with new and improved cement so that it will last a lot longer than the previous one. With many years of experience and knowledge in concrete construction; a small project like the one we completed was a simple task that was done by our crew. Here at Bernardo we are willing to take on more complex projects along with the minor jobs we complete. With any concrete construction project we complete it is only building our skills, which in return is why we are very skilled in all that we do.

Below is a video of a couple of the crew members using our bobcats to break the concrete into pieces which makes it easier to lift the broken concrete and place it into our dump trucks.

Concrete Construction Los Angeles

We at Bernardo are willing to take on any challenge that may come our way; and with this particular concrete construction project we knew it was definitely something that only experienced concrete construction contractors would be able to take on. We were hired by a property manager in Los Angeles, specifically the El Segundo area. El Segundo is close by Inglewood, Gardena, Redondo Beach, and Culver City. We were asked to remove and replace a concrete slab inside of an industrial building.  However it wasn’t the average 4″ concrete slab any concrete construction contractor is used to, but a 21 by 24 6″ slab of concrete. We actually had to replace it with 4 ft of concrete which meant that we had to haul away approximately 70 yards of dirt in that one area.

Establishing the Concrete Construction Project

This particular concrete construction project was something we weren’t used to normally doing but with our knowledge and experience we were able to get this concrete slab removed and replaced to our customers request. The beginning for this job was for us to saw cut and demo out the existing concrete slab all of which we have experienced and done hundreds of times before with other concrete construction projects. Once the 4″ concrete slab was removed we had to use our bobcats to excavate 4 ft down and haul away approximately 70 yards of dirt.

The reason we had to create a slab 4 ft thick for this concrete construction project was due to the heavy machinery that was going to be on the surface of the concrete. The only way a concrete slab would be able to withstand the heavy machinery would be to input a thick amount of concrete. After the area was graded we placed 3″ of steel rebar 12″ on center. The 3″ of steel rebar was needed for a slab that thick. Since it was such a thick slab of concrete the finish for the project took a lot longer than it normally would. Once all the concrete was poured we spent several hours on the concrete construction job just flouting the concrete and we continually checked the elevation and height of the concrete slab to make sure it would be able to withstand the weight of the machinery. After many long hours and hard work we completed the concrete construction project with great success. Our customers were definitely left satisfied with the work we accomplished for them.

Concrete Construction Curb & Flow line Replacement

Just last week B.C.I was hired by a property manager in Santa Ana for a concrete construction project where we had to remove existing parking stalls along with some landscape area to replace with new curb, flow line, and eventually additional parking stalls. The overcrowded apartment complex parking lot increased by 15 stalls after we had removed areas of landscape and restructured old parking stalls. Some concrete construction projects require not only that we remove existing work but may also require us to remove landscape or anything else that will only benefit the work itself. B.C.I is one of the concrete construction contractors to consider for any work that you may be looking to have done whether it be for a residential area or for a property manager.

Constructing the Concrete Construction Project

This was a two day concrete construction job for the crew at Bernardo. We knew we had to work promptly because it was an apartment complex and we knew we couldn’t slow down the residents who lived there. We at B.C.I also make sure to plan ahead and before we take on any project we look over the scope of work and figure out a plan as to what exactly needs to be done and the average amount of time we are going to need on the job. The first day on the concrete construction job consisted of mostly demo work. We began by saw-cutting out the existing curb and parking stalls in multiple areas.  After we saw-cut, we demoed out the existing concrete curb and parking stalls. We also had to demo landscape in some areas in order for the additional parking stalls to be added. After we demoed out all the areas we graded the remaining dirt with our bobcats. Once the areas were demoed and completely leveled out we were able to set up the perimeter for the new concrete curbs, flow line, and the foundation for the asphalt parking stalls.

Day Two on The Concrete Construction Job

The second day on the concrete construction job consisted of pouring and forming the 12″ concrete curb and concrete flow line in certain areas. The process in establishing a concrete curb and flow line must be very precise with the measurements and elevation of the flow line. Once the concrete was poured within the existing perimeter for the concrete curb and flow line we started to form the flow line. The elevation of the flow line must have equal measurements on each side of the slope in order for it to function with whatever it may come in contact with. After the concrete flow line was established we formed the concrete curb. We had to used certain tools to form the curb at a 90 degree angle. Since the concrete curb and flow line was formed and established the concrete construction part of the job was done.
