California New Location - BPG

BPG Moves into New Home in the Los Angeles, California Area

BPG Designs, LLC relocated its Los Angeles office and construction yard to a new location in Fullerton, California. The new office building and yard will be an anchor point for the greater Los Angeles area and allows for further expansion as our California division grows.

The new location has been in operation since August 1, 2021, and currently serves customers’ needs in our Designs (GIS / Mapping Surveying, CAD Services, Design Services), and Technology Services. Future services will include Construction (Horizontal Directional Drilling, Vacuum Excavation, Excavation, Utility Construction, Fiber Optic Cable Installation), and Electrical (Lighting, Renovations, Industrial Controls, Tenant Improvements, UG Utility) needs.

“We’ve been looking at this move for quite some time now,” commented Justin Platchek, the Chief Operations Officer of BPG Designs, LLC. “BPG started operating in Southern California with the opening of our Carlsbad office, serving the Orange County and San Diego markets and added an additional office in the Los Angeles area in May of 2020.  The California Division has grown rapidly since then, and we’ve added an excellent team to handle customer requests with the precision that BPG is known for in Arizona and Nevada.  It was clear to us that it was necessary to add a construction yard to handle all our equipment needs in the greater Los Angeles area.”

BPG Designs, LLC also recently hired a Director to run the fast-expanding California Division.  Justin Platchek continued, “Fabian Bautista has worked with many companies in the industry, such as Ridge Communications, ExteNet Systems, Inc., and Crown Castle, and is an excellent addition to the already impressive California Team.  He will oversee all facets of the day-to-day operations of the company’s divisions and administrative functions.”

Structured Cabling

Structured Cabling Systems for Smart Buildings

Building Enterprise Networks has become as critical as building electrical, water, and gas systems. Several studies have shown that nearly 75% of leasing decision-makers feel it is essential to have a reliable internet connection in their office space to conduct company business.

Traditional LAN networks of the past only relied on connectivity to desktop PCs. Today, the entire building automation, HVAC, lighting, AP, and camera’s to name a few, rely on a healthy and robust structured cabling system.

Avondale Property BPG

BPG Plans Expansion to the West Valley in Phoenix, Arizona

BPG recently purchased land to build a second location in Avondale, Arizona. In addition to their headquarters in Tempe, Arizona, this second Arizona location will double BPG’s office and yard space in the Phoenix Metro Area.  This decision supports the company’s growth strategy, accommodates the rapid growth in the West Valley, and leverages the area’s diverse construction talent pool.

“The decision to expand our presence into the West Valley was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Ben Goddard, President, and CEO. “We are outgrowing our current yard in Tempe. The main driving factor in moving forward with the land purchase and building this second location in Arizona was to reduce travel time to and from work for our employees living in the West Valley.  Establishing a second location also provides us the opportunity to expand our staff with employees from the West Valley, and a second-yard location gives us capabilities to better serve our existing and new customers on that side of town.”

Fiber Optics and Conduit Plowing Services

BPG Adds Conduit and Fiber Optic Cable Plowing to its Services

The demand for high-speed internet connections is greater now than ever before. Carriers are rushing to install fiber optic connections to homes, businesses, government facilities, smart cities, and educational institutions. In the power and energy industry, solar and wind farms are becoming more in demand as the push for cleaner energy is a priority in the private and public sectors. Power and fiber optic cable is the primary method utilized to connect the solar panels and wind turbines back to a central control center.

To meet this demand and other long-haul projects, BPG has invested in plowing equipment to meet our customer’s needs. Conduit and fiber optic plowing is a cost-effective installation method that is advantageous to our customer’s budgets and installation timelines.  On average, there is a 75 percent cost saving by simply using a utility plow versus trenching on long-haul projects.

We are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of a Vibratory Plow and Pre-trip dozer to place underground facilities.  Our John Deere 1050 J & K models of dozers can place direct bury fiber optic cable and 1.25”-5” conduit from 1-8 conduits.
