Bernardo Concrete, The Concrete Contractor for Los Angeles

Los Angeles Concrete Contracting Done by BCI Inc.

Concrete Contracting and Demolition In LA

Bernardo Concrete recently completed a concrete demolition /concrete contracting project in Los Angeles, California.  In order to get this project done correctly , there were a few simple issues to consider.

  1. Timing: This job had to be done early to avoid auto traffic and pedestrians.  Bernardo showed up at 5 am before people started to show up to work.  Once we arrived, we had to barricade off the area we would be working in.  Timing is critical on these projects.  Get in fast and get out fast.
  2. Man Power: On a project like this it is critical that we schedule the right size crew to get the job done fast.  Make no mistake, fast dose not mean sloppy or cheap.  It simply means that we need to hit it hard and bust it out quickly.
  3. Pre-Planning Project: When starting this job, it was also critical that we talk to both the foreman on the project as well as the salesman.  The idea is that the more communication that happens before the project, the fewer problems we run into during the project.  This project was a major business center in Los Angeles with dozens of large business that needed us to be in and out quickly so that their day wouldn’t be interrupted.

Concrete Demolition & Forming Begins

The first thing we had to do on this project once we arrived was concrete demolition.  We needed to remove the problem, which was basically tree root growth that caused the concrete curb and gutters to buckle.  On these types of projects its critical to remove the root that causes the buckle, as well as the concrete itself.  After the demolition was completed, we stated our forming process.  It was a pretty straight forward project in that forming new curb and gutter only took about an hour.   While we were there, we also did a small concrete pad for the customer.  This was a 10 x10 concrete pad that they needed us to install in a new area.  So, this area was formed out as well.

Pour, Finish and Clean up

Once the forming was installed, we moved on to pouring and finishing.  The trucks arrived with the concrete and  we poured the curbs, as well as the pad.  The areas were finished and cleaned up and came out looking great.  The customer was very pleased and the project was a success….. again.

BCI Performs Concrete Demolition & Pour Back In Pico Rivera

Curb, Gutter, & Slabs Removed & Replace in Pico Rivera Ca.

This week Bernardo Concrete, Inc. was asked to work in Pico Rivera.  If you’re not familiar with Pico Rivera, it’s a great little city located in Los Angeles County that has been there since the mid 1950’s.  Pico Rivera is located in between Montebello and Norwalk to the north and south, as well as Whittier and Bell Gardens to the east and west.  This project was located in a commerce center in Pico and the customer needed a few things done.  First off, there was the need for some concrete demolition of approximately 138 feet of curb and gutter, as well as further concrete removal of 100 feet of concrete slab.  Once that was removed, we needed to pour the new concrete curb and gutter, as well as the new concrete slab.  In whole, the job took only one day, but we took our time and it came out great!

 

 

 

About this Concrete Demolition & New Construction Project

This project was about as straight forward as they go.  We arrived at 5 am on site to begin the concrete demolition.  We worked for about 3 hours on removing the old concrete on both the curb and gutter, as well as the slab that needed to be repaired. The reason for the repairs was because of some tree roots that grew out and eventually buckled the concrete curbs and slab.  After the concrete curbs, gutter, and slabs were removed, we started forming for the new concrete.  Forming only took about an hour.  Then, we poured the concrete in and finished it using the appropriate floats and finishing tools.

Concrete Demolition in Buena Park, California

Buena Park Concrete Demolition Project

At Bernardo Concrete, we recently completed a concrete demolition project in Buena Park, California.  In order to perform the correct process of concrete demolition, there are a few simple steps.

  1. Timing: If we know a project is going to be done in a busy medical center, like this one, then we know that the work has to be done on the weekend.  Bernardo Concrete has the experience to understand that each job has its own personal unique timing issues.
  2. Barricade for safety: Technically, this should be number one.  Safety is Bernardo Concrete’s chief concern.  When we arrive at your project, we take all the time necessary to get the work area safely barricaded.  Bernardo Concrete understands that an area that is going to be under construction needs to be barricaded from the general public.
  3. Correctly stage the equipment: When staging job site equipment, we always consider traffic flow through the property to keep traffic moving (when possible) and the general public safe.

Starting the concrete demolition process

Once those precautions were taken, Bernardo Concrete was ready to start the concrete demolition process. The first step in that process was breaking out the existing, damaged concrete using our state of the art equipment, including Bobcat breakers. Next, we load the concrete into one of our waiting ten wheeler dump trucks. These dump trucks haul the concrete to the recycle plant, where it will be crushed and reused as rock base in another project.

After all of the concrete removal was completed, Bernardo formed and poured the new, stamped concrete, but that’s another blog.
