When it comes to obtaining required permits, the buck usually starts with civil engineering.

The structural engineering phase is essential in the steel building construction process. Structural designs can greatly affect a projects overall cost. For this reason, Berkeley Buildings works directly with our structural engineers in the designing of concrete slabs, foundations, retaining walls, parking lots, and more. Structural Engineers use engineered drawings and calculations provided by the per-engineered metal building (PEMB) company along with the Geo-technical report recommendations to design structural portion of the project.
When it comes to the interior build-outs of our projects, Berkeley Buildings uses partnered mechanical engineers to design the (MEP) mechanical (HVAC, Ventilation, Elevators, etc), Electrical, and Plumbing plans.
At Berkeley Buildings, we erect our own buildings. Berkeley Buildings is experienced in the OSHA approved erection process, where safety is key. Berkeley Buildings is fully focused on erecting our buildings as quickly and safely as possible.
Following the design provided by the civil and structural engineers, Berkeley Buildings provides excavation for the entire project. Excavation includes:
- Tree removal
- Pad Preparation
- dirt and aggregate
- drive way prepartion
- parking lot prepartion
- detention/retention work
- and more.
Every steel building needs a concrete foundation and/or piers. At Berkeley Buildings, we provide professional concrete services to our customers.
Utilizing engineer structural plans, Berkeley Buildings constructs all portion of the building slab, including the forming, rebar placing, interior beams, footings, piers, pump truck, concrete mixture. At Berkeley Buildings, we understand that a building's foundation sets the standards for its structural integrity.
Parking Lots, Aprons, Walk ways, Cubing
Dock High Walls
For Commercial Metal Warehouse Projects, dock high walls are often required to assist with the loading and unloading of cargo trucks. Berkeley Buildings is experienced in dock high wall construction
Once steel buildings are erected, we don't stop there, we provide interior buildouts for our customers. Many buildings are not just shells, they contain restrooms, offices, and even complete homes. At Berkeley Buildings, we know interior buildouts and offer our services to all of our customers. We believe that it is beneficial to our customers to work with just one company on a project than multiple.
