Concrete Construction in Diamond Bar, California

Saving Trees in Diamond Bar with Concrete Construction

Concrete Planter Made Larger for Existing Trees

This particular concrete construction project took place in a business park in the city of Diamond Bar, California.  Diamond Bar is located in Los Angeles County with the city of Pomona to the east and the city of Walnut to the west.  The city of Chino Hills is to the south with San Dimas to the north.  The job was performed on the weekend while the parking lot was empty to give the least chance of disruption to the employees and to create the safest working environment for Bernardo Concrete, Inc.

Trees Offer an Aesthetic Value

This business park benefits from the beautiful landscaping and numerous trees.  In Southern California, trees are not only for aesthetic purposes, but also needed for shade.  The issue in this park was that some of the tree roots were lifting and breaking the concrete curbs and asphalt that surrounded the trees.  Unsafe conditions in a parking lot, such as the one created by these tree roots, are a nightmare for the parking lot owner.  It is their responsibility to keep the area safe for employees and customers.  A solution was found that saved the trees and also removed the tripping hazard.

Bernardo Concrete, Inc. is always willing to work with you to find a solution to your particular concrete construction project.  In this case, BCI removed the existing concrete curb and asphalt around the trees.  The planter around the tree was enlarged and new concrete curb was constructed around the planter giving plenty of room for the tree roots.  The areas around the trees were already “no parking” areas, so the parking lot did not lose any parking spaces and the trees were saved.

ADA Upgrades in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca.

Rancho Cucamonga ADA Upgrade

About the ADA in Riverside, California

This weekend Bernardo Concrete, Inc. was asked to perform some ADA upgrades in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. Rancho Cucamonga is located in San Bernardino County.  It is surrounded by the cities of Fontana, Ontario, Upland, and Claremont.  This project was performed in a busy business park, so, it had to be done on the weekend. Bernardo Concrete, Inc. is a concrete contractor that completely understands the complex codes and regulations of the federal ADA standards.

ADA Requirements, Grades, and Regulations

When our customers called us, they were in need of advice. It seemed that some of their concrete crosswalks and ramps were in need of ADA upgrades. The main reason they needed to be upgraded was because the grades of their ramps were not compliant with current ADA laws. They decided to hire Bernardo Concrete, Inc. to be their concrete contractor on this project.

About This ADA Project

The first thing Bernardo Concrete had to do was to lay out the new ramp and crosswalk in preparation for the saw cutter. The existing ramp and crosswalk was made from concrete pavers and were a beautiful addition to this business park. Unfortunately, they did not meet the ADA codes and some of them had to be removed.  Once the existing pavers were removed, Bernardo Concrete, Inc. created wooden forms and poured new concrete.  We paid special attention to making sure the grading and truncated domes were ADA compliant and safe.  BCI is a concrete contractor that knows the ADA codes and regulations.

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.
