Frequently Asked Questions

As you may know, we specialize in commercial and industrial renovations, tenant improvements, and new building construction.

No matter the size of the project, from dugouts to tilt-ups, water closets to roofing, ground-ups to tenant improvements, Riggins Construction & Management, Inc. has been pleasing our clients since 1977.

Some of your questions may be answered here or over at our blog:

  1. My concrete tilt-up building has cracks in the wall panels. Are they just cosmetic?
  2. Often times, because both concrete and the earth tend to move, tilt-up panels will develop cracks. These cracks are not merely at the surface; rather, they crack through the entire thickness of the wall panel. Read more about the process and watch the video here.

  3. My concrete tilt-up building has a damaged panel. What can I do?
  4. If a panel is bowed from a fire, for example, you will need to replace any structurally compromised (bowed) panels. It's a fairly simple process. Watch the 7 minute overview video here.

  5. I'd like a truck dock for shipping and receiving but I'm not sure my building is high enough. Is there another option for me besides relocating?
  6. An exterior truckwell may be your solution. See our project brochure for Hino Trucking that we completed for Landco, LLC here.

  7. I've just purchased a tilt-up building; it's nice but there isn't very much storefront presence. Do I have other options to increase my street presence?
  8. We can structurally reinforce and sawcut several openings out of the tilt up wall to install storefronts. Check out our brochure from The Dr. project here. Please also see the video on the "Projects" page.

  9. I'm interested in purchasing a parcel of land. Can Riggins Construction build a new building from ground up?
  10. We'd be happy to build your building from ground up. See our project brochure for the Carlsbad Research Center built for Landco, LLC here. Other examples are on our "New Construction" page.

  11. Our business requires specialty equipment installation. Can you handle that type of work, too?
  12. Sure. Not only have we installed auto wash stations and specialty automotive repair equipment as seen in The Dr.'s brochure, but we've installed modeling plates for a local automotive design house. See our project brochure for Fisker Automotive, Inc. here.

  13. We would like to upgrade our restrooms but are concerned about the down-time. How would that work?
  14. We've done both 12 and 22 multi-fixture restroom upgrades in three-phase schedules to allow your normal business operations to continue. See our project brochure for Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. here.

  15. Our company is interested in purchasing a building, but it's a bit too large for us. Can we create a leasable space for extra income?
  16. We can do that for you. In fact, we've recently completed such a project with 22,033 square feet of warehouse and 2,533 square feet of leasable office space. See our project brochure for Poly-Tak Protection Systems, Inc. here.

  17. We want to lease or purchase a specific building but are concerned with its condition. Does Riggins Construction perform building surveys?
  18. Sure thing! One of the services we provide our clients is building surveys, which can be customized according to your needs. See our example building survey here. Call our office at (714) 953-6333 or send us an email for more information.
