Industrial use buildings can also suffer minor to extensive foundation and slab distress. Heavy equipment and machinery can cause cracking and chipping of the concrete. These can often cause safety concerns for equipment operators, as well as workers.
Epoxy repairs and slab replacements in heavy traffic areas and loading dock areas are typical. A smooth surface might prevent an accident from occurring.
This industrial granite shop has structural slabs supporting cranes and specialized machinery. These slabs are also designed with drainage in mind. Water runoff from jet machinery is confined from running into the rest of the shop's areas.
Tenant Improvements are other projects that we can assist you with. Formerly Duke's Garage, in Pacific Beach, was converted into a multi-use building with industrial use on the bottom story and residential units above.
Special foundation designs, structural CMU block, steel frame and structural slabs were integrated to completely renovate this old building into new, to match its new beach environment.
