This red and relatively lightweight 100% fiberglass storage tank is being hoisted onto a trailer and will be installed at a local university in Pasadena.

Staking Catch Basins

Staking Catch Basins

Survey staking, as indicated by pink cloth on these wooden stakes, are especially important for catch basin installations to ensure they are formed at the correct angles so when curbs, gutters and sidewalks get poured later, everything is in line

Fiberglass Water Tanks

Fiberglass Water Tanks

This 40,000 gal 100% fiberglass water-efficient tank measures 57'L x 12' W and will be installed at Caltech to collect and reuse rainwater for irrigation which is part of a Green Building application.

Concrete Vibrating Equipment

Concrete Vibrating Equipment

Concrete vibrating equipment is used here to allow freshly poured concrete to settle down, deep into the grooves of this junction structure frame work, to prevent any sizable air gaps.

Pipe Hoist

Pipe Hoist

This 54" reinforced concrete pipe is being hoisted from the top center of the pipe to allow for proper lifting and pipeline installation. This small hole will be patched with concrete after trench installation.

Large Concrete Pipes

Large Concrete Pipes

Large, 54" reinforced concrete pipe has just been installed for this new residential tract. The edges and top openings have just been patched with concrete to secure and close them in place.

Pouring Concrete
