Concrete Construction Southern California

B.C.I was hired by a general contractor to perform a concrete construction project for a new retail center in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is near Carson, Gardena, Compton and Rancho Dominguez. This concrete construction job required us to construct footings, grade beams, slab on grade, and all the on site curb and gutter also sidewalks, trash slabs. Bernardo also removed and replaced the city sidewalk and driveway approaches per city standards. Our scope of work was taken from a complete set of blue prints and proceeded from the estimating phase to the pour and finish for this concrete construction project. The customer was very confident in our ability to handle this scope of work.

We have constructed building foundations all through out Southern California for this specific contractor and many other developers and property owners alike. Bernardo Concrete understands how scheduling and coordination with other sub contractors such as plumbers, electricians, and carpenters is very important because once the building foundation has been poured no changes can be made. We take pride in ourselves in over seeing all these phases prior to the concrete being placed.

Concrete Construction Basics

Once we arrived at the job site we first graded the area for the building slab and dug all necessary footings. Then we set the perimeter forms for the building foundation. The next step for the concrete construction project was to place the 10 mil plastic as a vapor barrier. Once that was done we covered it with 2″ of fill sand to make the final grade. A building slab is generally 6″ thick. After that we placed the rebar 24″ on center and then we checked to make sure all plumbing and anchor bolts were in place and ready for the inspection. Once that was all completed the city building inspector was called to verify that everything we had done is per the plans and drawings for this particular concrete construction project. He then gave us approval and we proceeded to place and finish the concrete for our new building slab.

Concrete Construction Los Angeles

This past week Bernardo Concrete was asked to do some concrete construction work at an industrial building in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is surrounded by the following cities Vernon, Commerce, Eagle Rock, and Burbank. The customer requested  some work on a concrete slab. The concrete slab had to be removed and replaced and they knew Bernardo Concrete was the concrete contractor they could count on to get the job done.

The Beginning of the Concrete Construction Slab

The entire process in this concrete construction job required more than just simply removing the concrete. When we first arrived at the job site we unloaded all our tools and bobcats along with marking off the area to ensure the safety of others. Once the area was marked off we began to saw-cut and demo the concrete. We then took our bobcats and broke the existing concrete slab. After this we picked up the concrete pieces with our bobcat and loaded it onto our dump truck where it is then hauled away to the nearest dump.

Completing the Concrete Construction Project

Now that the old concrete slab had been removed we were able to start the process of replacing the new concrete slab. The first step in this process was to set the rebar in order to support the concrete so that it lasts longer. Once the rebar was all set we began pouring the new concrete. We also had to make sure we formed the concrete so that it was even in every part of the new slab.  We were able to get this concrete construction project done in just one day and our customer was very satisfied with the work we completed for them.

Concrete Slab Repair; The Project Breakdown

When we first arrived at the job site we unloaded all of our construction tools and tractors. Once everything was unloaded we began marking off the entire area that needed to be removed.
