Stop wasting your profit margins:

❌ Job site set-up & strike (lock up/unlock) mornings, lunches/breaks, evenings (like putting away all tools, locking job boxes, rolling up all extension cords, over and over and over again…)

❌ Job site distractions and inefficiencies (like waiting for the lift for 2.5 hrs, or Bob from electrical that just has to tell you in great detail about the sandwich he had for lunch…)

❌ Job site theft/vandalism

❌ Commute times for your fabricators

❌ Travel costs for your fabricators

❌ Taking up your Foreman Manager’s & Field Guide’s time and focus (they’re busy enough already)

We know the inefficiencies of on-site fabrication, and we know you do too.

Stop wasting money paying for hours made up of walking on and off the job site, setting up and tearing down/locking up the job site for each and every shift, waiting for the elevator, wrapping their extension cords, managing/moving pipe without the proper tools… when you pay for prefabrication work, all of those inefficiencies and wasted hours are recovered.

Why Choose Bay Area Pipe & Equipment?

Your business is growing but the idea of carrying the overhead involved in managing your own off-site prefabrication shop is too cost prohibitive from all the
exorbitant fixed costs such as:

Rent/lease on the building

Outfitting all the specialized tools and equipment

Staffing union labor & covering all union dues

Training and managing quality control

Hiring and managing a shop foreman

Ensuring when it’s delivered it’s ready to be walked right onto the install location (in order and sequential…)

We take all that overhead off of your hands and provide a seamless, family operated, certified (SF-LBE/Woman Owned, CA-DGS Small Business) business, C20 & C36 contractors licenses, and ABOVE industry standard prefabrication suite of services.

I really like working with BAPE, there’s never any hassle. It’s an honest transaction all the way through, no cutting and screaming and yelling like I’ve dealt with through other companies. It was smooth, easy.

I have been in the industry for over 25 years and have never experienced the above and beyond customer service and knowledge that BAPE provides.

I have used BAPE since they first opened and have been nothing but impressed. I have shared their company information with my peers that work in the industry and they as well are impressed and continue using BAPE as a primary supplier.
