Step-by-Step Light Pole Base Installation at Distribution Center


Follow Wings Excavation through the step by step process of installing Pole Base precast light pole bases on a major distribution center project. Wings chose precast concrete products for their ease and speed of installation and the flexibility they provide to work in rain, high water levels, and even snow if necessary.

The precast concrete foundations were pre-fabricated and built to specification for the site-specific conditions. The bolt configuration was made to match the bolt circle of the light poles and the conduit segments were set every 90 degrees to line up with trenches on-site.
