Developers and construction firms strive to create the correct mix of retail and commercial buildings to meet challenging consumer and business demands. The ability to plan, permit, and build in an expeditious manner is paramount. Developers and contractors demand an engineering firm who can deliver-and not impact critical opening dates, which can cost millions in lost revenue. That’s BSK. With over 40 years of experience in the commercial and retail markets in some of the biggest metropolitan areas in the United States, BSK has earned a reputation of quality support. We have established relationships with some of the largest developers, national retail chains and construction companies in the nation. They trust BSK to understand their needs and they know BSK will be there anytime. Our experience includes shopping centers, office buildings, grocery and department stores, open air malls, and restaurants from single story to multi-story. BSK’s ability to provide full service support in the areas of geotechnical engineering, environmental, construction observation as well as materials testing and inspection makes us a valuable partner.
Paragon Outlets Livermore is home to over 120 premium factory outlet stores in a 450,000 square foot retail center. BSK provided geotechnical engineering services for the building pads and parking lots, and special inspections and materials testing services for all buildings and relocations of main water lines. BSK performed reinforcing steel placement, concrete sampling, and laboratory testing at all buildings for an approximate 40,000 cubic yards. During the slab concrete placement, BSK had multiple technicians' on-site to cover two boom pumps and two laser screeds running at the same time. BSK also performed shop and field structural steel welding observations.
