BSM Construction - Our Goal is to Build Quality Projects That Meet or Exceed Our Clients' Expectations


BSM Construction, Inc. headquartered in Concord, CA. We specialize in retail, grocery construction, ADA compliance upgrades, landlord work, office and industrial construction improvements. Our dedicated team works in all aspects of the building process including planning, estimating, value engineering, management, supervision, and safety. Since 1997, BSM’s goal remains to build quality projects that meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.

Upon completion of a project it is important that we have instilled a strong sense of trust and integrity in our clients. Our clients rely on us to represent them in a highly professional manner in all aspects of the construction process including planning, estimating, value engineering, management, supervision and safety.


SERVICES:

GROCERY REMODEL
From after-hour cold case replacements resulting in a seamless store opening the next morning, to full store remodels including full isle reconfigurations, check stand retrofits, Disabled Person compliance and professional refrigeration services, the BSM Construction team is well “seasoned” in the Grocery environment.

RETAIL TENANT IMPROVEMENTS
Retail TI's are a unique breed of construction, as typically these build-outs are performed during retail center operating hours, when the surrounding tenants are actively catering to their clients. Non-disturbance of neighboring tenants and a clean and stealth like storefront is of utmost importance. The BSM Construction team is well aware of the importance of this and while top quality construction is the ultimate objective, a keen sensitivity of the surrounding retail environment, the safety of our crews, subcontractors and the shopping center patrons alike, is always at the FOREFRONT of the BSM Construction operating procedure.

SHOPPING CENTER EXTERIOR RENOVATIONS
Updating the exterior of your shopping Center is proven to attract the most desirable and highest paying tenants. The attractive look and feel of a shopping center makes for a more inviting and pleasurable shopping experience for the patrons of your center, which translates into more sales for your tenants. BSM Construction is an expert in exterior shopping center renovations. Our team has done it all from newly updated facades, siding replacement, parking lot resurfacing, strategic signage enhancements and landscaping improvements. We will work with your Architect, or our design build team can put together a plan that will attract new higher paying tenants to your center, while extending the life and increasing the value of your properties.

OFFICE BUILDING TI'S
Diligent coordination with top notch team players is the key to any successful Office TI. We work in unison with your Building Engineer to assure that all building rules and regulations are understood upfront and adhered to by our employees and subcontractors alike. Weekly progress meetings are held with the Property Manager, Building Engineer and Architect, when appropriate to assure that the project schedule is on track and that the project is being built according to specifications. Assuring that our project is virtually unnoticeable to the surrounding tenants and their patrons is our prime concern and we know that. Our superintendents are well trained to maintain a safe, clean and sound sensitive work environment at all time.

GROUND-UP CONSTRUCTION
The BSM team has built a vast variety of ground-up construction projects. Please allow us the opportunity to provide budget pricing for your next new construction project. Our experienced team will work with you and your Architect to put together a value engineered plan to include your project objectives, while meeting your specific budget constraints.

INDUSTRIAL CONSTRUCTION
Construction is well adept in the industrial construction arena. We know the many pitfalls that can occur and the additional obstacles that are introduced in any industrial construction environment. Ever changing power requirements and code compliance knowledge is where we shine. We are very comfortable in the industrial arena and have a proven track record under our belt to prove it. Please contact us for more information on how we can help you plan your upcoming industrial construction project.

EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES CONSTRUCTION
Educational facilities are typically very time sensitive. When a project must be built within a specific off season break or holiday period. The team at BSM Construction is on track and on time!

Western Health Advantage - A Full-Service Health Plan




Western Health Advantage (WHA) is a full-service health plan developed by NorthBay Healthcare, Mercy Healthcare Sacramento, and the UC Davis Health System. WHA members have access to a network of over 250 primary care physicians and more than 540 specialists within Solano, Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties. This not-for-profit health plan is committed to investing more of the health care premium dollar in patient care. Rates are very competitive. 

About Western Health Advantage:

Great Balance of Value and Coverage
As a not-for-profit health plan created by local doctors and their hospitals, Western Health Advantage offers a refreshing alternative to the expensive bureaucracy of national HMOs.

Fifteen years ago, UC Davis Health System, Dignity Health and NorthBay Healthcare System came together to create a health plan to offer clear value in quality care for the people who live and work in Northern California. And this care starts with the exceptional range and reputation of our health care providers.

Access to Quality Doctors and Hospitals
With WHA, you have access to award-winning programs for cancer treatment, a nationally-ranked children's hospital, heart and stroke centers with "Gold Seals of Approval" and top-ranked medical groups. We are here to bring you easier access to care, that's why our members can choose from over 2,800 primary and specialty care providers and 15 hospitals in Northern California.

 

Sacramento-Solano Area
  • Hill Physicians Medical Group
  • NorthBay Healthcare
  • Mercy/Dignity Health
  • UC Davis Health System
  • Woodland Healthcare/Dignity Health
North Bay Area
  • Healdsburg District Hospital
  • Marin General Hospital
  • Meritage Medical Network
  • Palm Drive Hospital, Sebastopol
  • Sonoma Valley Hospital
  • St. Joseph Health


Choices and Flexibility
Our members have more choices because they aren't locked into one medical group for specialty care.

With our unique Advantage Referral program, you'll have the flexibility to choose from almost any specialist in our entire network, not just within your particular medical group.

All HMOs let you pick a PCP from the groups in its network. The trouble starts when you need a referral to a specialist. You're usually restricted to a specialist who is in the same medical group as your PCP. At Western Health Advantage, we want you to receive the care you need, when you need it.

That kind of choice and flexibility is why more than 92,000 members trust Western Health Advantage for their health coverage.

Personal Customer Service
You'll be supported by a local, personal customer service team dedicated to answering your calls within 30 seconds.

Yes, real people will be with you every step of the way, answering all your questions and taking care of your needs. Don't just take our word for it. The California Office of the Patient Advocate releases an annual Health Care Quality Report Card, assessing California health plans for quality of services. At Western Health Advantage, we are proud of how our members rate our health plan.**

As a member of WHA, you'll have an abundance of resources available to you 24/7 through your customized, secure Personal Access account online at westernhealth.com.

Day or night, you'll have access to your plan materials, the ability to change your PCP, order/print replacement ID cards and much more.

The Health Plan that Actually Makes People Feel Good
WHA gives our members the added peace-of-mind that comes from travel assistance from Assist America®. Anytime you travel 100 miles or more away from home - even in a foreign country - you are eligible for Assist America's assistance services, such as medical consultation and referrals, care of a minor child, lost luggage or document assistance, and other vital services that may arise while traveling.

Note: As part of your plan, urgent care and emergency care services are covered wherever you are in the world.

Our members have the added benefit of an online wellness program. HealthyroadsTM provides our members with a personalized health assessment, meal/nutrition planner, fitness and wellness trackers, e-coaching, articles and a variety of other tools to help you reach your health goals. In addition to receiving standard advice for medical issues, our members have access to registered nurses - all day, every day - who are ready to answer your specific questions on general health and wellness, including direct referrals to disease management nurses.

Note: Bilingual services are available upon request.

If this sounds like something you'd like in a health plan, give us a call at 888.499.3198.
