Our team’s unparalleled technical construction experience extends beyond simple concrete. Our foundation, which began in the 1930’s paving roads for future Southern California freeways, and has now ranged today to the building of complex underground structures, is significant. We are easily able to anticipate bottlenecks in concrete production and logistics, with the physical limitations of concrete material in general, to address issues and variances before they affect project schedules. We have already secured concrete batch plants to service this project.
LARGE, COMPLEX DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
WE ALSO BRING THE FOLLOWING EXPERIENCE:
Extensive experience with nearly all soil and weather conditions
Experience with pouring in extreme weather conditions, including in the snow, and experience in extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) and night pours (middle of the night due to high temperatures)
Experience with all-terrain equipment, including earthmoving equipment, cranes, and boom pumps
Unparalleled concrete construction experience, concentrating in Southern California and throughout the Southwest Region, has been passed down over the past five generations: Bohannan Paving to S&S. Seismic land creates hillside challenges, while the desert environment (and its extreme temperatures) create unique challenges for pouring concrete successfully.
EXCEPTIONAL CONCRETE EXPERTISE
S&S lowered the site with site walls on a hillside by 50′ feet, by install drilling, hoisting and placing 8,000 lbs. steel cages, for 75′ foot caissons, in lifts of up to 15′ feet on an earthquake fault line, placing 10″ thick shotcrete wall reinforced with steel. Meanwhile ongoing grading of thousands of yards of earthwork and construction roadways.
Working in the terrain of the border is a significant consideration. We utilized all-terrain cranes, loaders, trucking, concrete boom pumps to achieve this work. This project is renowned for the difficulty in constructibility given the earthquake zone design criteria and hillside terrain.
Concrete contractors from other parts of the country most likely have never seen these types of problems before. Our team is regularly called upon to provide consulting services to other concrete companies when facing unique challenges on their projects. Our laser focus on retention of a skilled workforce assures us the highest confidence in successfully completing projects.
With industry-leading expertise and strong relationships with all major material suppliers, we are able to easily source materials at the lowest price possible, while managing seamless delivery to the job site to meet even aggressive schedules. Our procurement process focuses on “Buy America First”. We utilize all leading construction management software, including Procore, MS Project, Primavera (Oracle), BIM, AutoCAD, and Textura.
COST, SCHEDULE, AND MANAGEMENT CONTROLS
There is often a disconnect between construction planning and real-world execution of those plans as site conditions are often unpredictable. With over 100 years of concrete construction experience between our team members, we will quickly and consistently identify variances in construction plans with site conditions. Our flat organizational structure allows us to resolve variances quickly without sacrificing cost, schedule, or performance.
