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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
