We at Bernardo are willing to take on any challenge that may come our way; and with this particular concrete construction project we knew it was definitely something that only experienced concrete construction contractors would be able to take on. We were hired by a property manager in Los Angeles, specifically the El Segundo area. El Segundo is close by Inglewood, Gardena, Redondo Beach, and Culver City. We were asked to remove and replace a concrete slab inside of an industrial building. However it wasn’t the average 4″ concrete slab any concrete construction contractor is used to, but a 21 by 24 6″ slab of concrete. We actually had to replace it with 4 ft of concrete which meant that we had to haul away approximately 70 yards of dirt in that one area.
Establishing the Concrete Construction Project
This particular concrete construction project was something we weren’t used to normally doing but with our knowledge and experience we were able to get this concrete slab removed and replaced to our customers request. The beginning for this job was for us to saw cut and demo out the existing concrete slab all of which we have experienced and done hundreds of times before with other concrete construction projects. Once the 4″ concrete slab was removed we had to use our bobcats to excavate 4 ft down and haul away approximately 70 yards of dirt.
The reason we had to create a slab 4 ft thick for this concrete construction project was due to the heavy machinery that was going to be on the surface of the concrete. The only way a concrete slab would be able to withstand the heavy machinery would be to input a thick amount of concrete. After the area was graded we placed 3″ of steel rebar 12″ on center. The 3″ of steel rebar was needed for a slab that thick. Since it was such a thick slab of concrete the finish for the project took a lot longer than it normally would. Once all the concrete was poured we spent several hours on the concrete construction job just flouting the concrete and we continually checked the elevation and height of the concrete slab to make sure it would be able to withstand the weight of the machinery. After many long hours and hard work we completed the concrete construction project with great success. Our customers were definitely left satisfied with the work we accomplished for them.
