May 4th, 2018, the Wellspan Health and Surgery Center project in Hanover, PA was successfully topped off with the last piece of steel to signify structural completion; a sure milestone of the project. The beam was signed by Wellspan physicians, leaders, and staff members, in addition to community leaders prior to the top off on the facility’s main entranceway.

Bass worked with Stewart Amos Steel for the structural steel installation portion of this project which consisted of erecting 650 tons of steel per AISC Code of Standard Practice. Our hardworking field crew met critical deadlines and worked through various weather conditions in order to successfully complete the project.

The health center, located in Penn Township, York County, will feature an outpatient surgery suite, lab and imaging services, and primary care and speciality physician offices. Wellspan Hanover Health is planned to open Spring 2019.

National Welding Month '18

Every April, National Welding Month is celebrated with the sole purpose of recognizing the impact that welding has in our community and everyday life. Each and every day construction sites, manufacturing plants, and shipyards are filled with skilled welding professionals who work to build America’s structures and products. The month of April is a chance to spotlight every welder that contributed to the welding industry’s past, present, and future.

At Bass, we wanted to celebrate National Welding Month by showcasing a few of our hard working welders that act as the seam not just to our projects but also to our business. These guys dedicate their life to being “under the hood” and “laying sick beads”.
