Our dedicated construction team is committed to the success of your goals. We are fully prepared to partner with you to bring your project in on time and on budget.

Concrete Foundations

We have years of experience inspecting, constructing, and maintain high-performance concrete foundations. Our highly skilled team of professionals understand the constraints and challenges associated with commercial concrete projects. Our track record of successful partnerships is testament to a history of reliable concrete services at affordable prices.
Our foundation and slab offerings include design, calculation, and PE stamp; structural specification for modification or new construction and task-specific finishes, including complex forming and safe removal of forming


Pre-Tensioned and Post-Tensioned Repairs

Post-tensioning is one of the most advanced and efficient technologies used to reinforce concrete.

Corrosion of unbounded post-tensioning strands has become a common problem for parking structures exposed to deicing salts. CPS offers a complete range of post-tensioning services for both new construction and parking garage restoration.


Carbon Fiber Strengthening

Carbon fiber is a reinforcement system engineered to increase structural performance.

Our highly skilled technicians utilize the latest technology to apply fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) onto the surface of structural members in parking structures and bridges. The externally bonded carbon-fiber fabric has outstanding long-term physical and mechanical properties and is engineered to increase the strength and load-carrying capacity of the structure.


Epoxy and Urethane Injection

Epoxy injection is a non-invasive, economical, permanent repair process to restore cracked concrete slabs and walls to their original structural stability. Because epoxy is a stronger material than concrete, it is more cost effective than replacing the concrete. Applications includes concrete support columns, slabs, foundation walls, and more. Epoxy injection will provide a full structural repair and keep moisture from further permeation. In some situations, Epoxy Injection is combined with helical piles, permeation grouting, and slab jacking as advanced solutions.

Injection of elastomeric, fast-setting Urethane foams are effective alternatives for applications involving crack sealing where structural stability is not required. Urethane injections can be applied to damp surfaces and their flexible composition allows for minor shifting within the concrete.


Resinous Flooring

Resinous flooring is the process of applying a base of resinous material to concrete, creating a smooth, non-porous flooring surface. Resinous flooring is typically cast or poured in place then is cured, allowing it to set completely. These flooring systems can be decorative and are very chemical resistive. The three most common types of resinous flooring are epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylic. Resinous floors are resistant to the build up of dirt, grime, and bacteria and are commonly used in facilities where hygiene is a top priority. Resinous flooring is a very durablesystem that can withstand large amounts of heavy traffic.


Pre-Engineered Buildings

Designed for quality, fast economical installation and low maintenance, Pre-Engineered solutions are available for aviation, agriculture, retail, industrial, manufacturing, warehousing, service centers, mini storage, office space, educational facilities and more.


Shot Blasting

Shot Blasting is the process of removing contaminants from the surface of concrete slabs in order to provide a suitable substrate for coating for waterproofing. Shot Blasting tools use a high-performance airless centrifugal wheel to propel blast media (typically steel shot) in a controlled pattern and direction. It is a clean, efficient and environmentally safe method of removing dirt, grease and other contaminants from the concrete surface prior to the application of a penetrating sealer or traffic coating.

The process is completely dust free and all contaminants are reclaimed with minimal abrasive media loss. Shotblasting can be effective on surface preparation ranging from very light etching to more aggressive removal of mortar to coarse aggregate.

Pressure Washing

Higher pressure washing may be required to remove tough contaminants such as paint and heavy tire-skid marks on surface concrete.

Cleaning the floors in a parking garage each spring is a cost-effective technique to minimize premature deterioration. CPS utilizes industrial strength powerwashing equipment to flush out deicing salts that accumulate during the winter and commercial degreasers to remove oil spots from the parking stalls. Powerwashing can be performed at minimal cost and with little or no disruption to the daily operation of the garage.


Hydro Demolition

Ultra-high pressure water technology is used to provide an efficient and dust-free method for removing traffic membranes and deteriorated concrete.

The power of hydro-demolition provides the highest level of surface preparation and the best possible bond for all types of repair materials. The water jet equipment operates at a pressure of 36,000 psi using robotic tractors with rotating multi-jet cutting heads capable of removing concrete from around reinforcing without damaging the steel.
