Pleasing Project Owners

Distribution center project owners face the challenges of any major commercial construction project but often on a larger scale. Coordinating contractors, overcoming weather setbacks, and trying to keep the projects on schedule and budget is difficult enough with smaller projects, but when it’s a sprawling warehouse, those issues can get big in a hurry. To minimize these challenges, project owners seek the most efficient contractors and high-strength products to ensure their project moves forward with minimal hiccups. Impress project owners with the efficiency of installing precast bases while providing a product with aesthetic appeal and structural integrity.

Built to Spec

Arriving at the job site complete and ready to install, each Pole Base is built to the specifications required by the project’s engineers and includes rebar reinforcement, conduit, and anchor bolt placement. With aesthetically pleasing finishes including the Round Rusticated and Round Smooth textures, contractors can provide a sightly finished product.

Pole Base producers meticulously cast bases in sizes ranging from 12- to 36-in (304.8 to 914.4 mm) diameters, with lengths up to 13 ft (3.96 m), all in a completely controlled environment. This precision ensures that bases show up on your jobsite ready to go, saving you precious time that would otherwise be wasted installing cast-in-place base alternatives on-site.


More Pole Base = More Savings

When it comes to distribution center projects, anywhere from 12 - 100+ light pole bases may be required. Installing Pole Base is a plug-and-play process on large-scale applications, offering contractors the speed and simplicity they need. On the other hand, assembling and installing with cast-in-place cardboard tube bases on-site can be a time-consuming task, requiring nearly seven times more man-hours than a single precast base. Moreover, cast-in-place often results in a less-sightly product, as cardboard tubes leave rings and surface imperfections on finished bases. By choosing precast Pole Base, you not only save time, but also ensure a high-quality finished product, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your project.

The Conclusion
