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.
