BCCI has a long history of completing highly complex structural and seismic projects. And we’re passionate about solving the challenges these projects bring. From using traditional seismic strengthening methods with anchored ties, reinforced mortar joints, braced frames, bond beams, moment-resisting frames, shear walls, and horizontal diaphragms to new technologies and alternative approaches, such as fiberglass mesh and micro-piles, our team of experts is up for the challenge. When working in landmark buildings we make recommendations that align with your budget goals while addressing all applicable building codes. And, we apply fundamental preservation principles to ensure reinforcements do not damage historical aspects of the structure.

  • Architectural and Stadium-style Staircases
  • Atriums/Multi-level Openings

“Our experience working with BCCI on this complex and challenging project was extremely positive. BCCI’s team had a clear approach to the project, and their effective collaboration with subcontractors and the design team resulted in a high-quality project that the owner, the architect, and the contractor can all be proud of.”

“BCCI is a rare contractor who is sensitive to structural, interior renovation and historic issues. The interior finish work in the new library is exceptional, and perhaps the greatest compliment is that the stone exterior looks exactly as it did before the extensive seismic work was done! BCCI was a great partner in every phase of the project—from developing the budget to constructability reviews through construction. We hope this is the first of many projects with BCCI.”

“There were many challenges presented by the building, its age, the nature of brick and timber construction, and the layers of improvements that we needed to peel back in order to clearly identify our path forward in many cases. BCCI was instrumental in navigating those challenges and making sure the project met the needs of the owner. The care and attention to detail that BCCI team members showed was especially gratifying.

To a person, your entire team seemed to hold to the same high standards in their efforts, which ultimately made my job that much easier. BCCI was a great partner.”
