There are only ten more days left in November to help raise money for men’s health through The The Movember Foundation.
The money raised by Movember is used to fund over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
By growing mustaches and taking the 30-day move challenge during November, we bring awareness to these important men’s health issues.
The BALI Construction Movember team has raised $650 so far as a team. With your help we can get to $800!
The Bay Area as a whole has raised $447,500! – as of November 20th.
The U.S. Construction Industry has raised $22,000! Check out BALI Construction at #6.
We are raffling off a $150 gift card to our client’s amazing restaurant ICHI Sushi + NI Bar in San Francisco to the awesome people who donate to our team. Here is how to donate to Movember: Simply click Donate and type BALI Construction into the search box.

November has become known as “Movember” over the last decade or so to many of us. If you combine mustache with November, you get Movember.
This term was created by The Movember Foundation.
“The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.” Here is information on their funding strategy.
Throughout the month of November, there are great ways for us to raise awareness and fundraise for men’s health issues for The Movember Foundation.
The majority of BALI Construction’s employees are men, so we really thought it was a great idea for us to participate in Movember!
To partipate in Movember, we have created a fundraising team . Also, the men of BALI Construction are growing mustaches for 30 days to raise awareness and be walking, talking billboards for men’s health. The women of BALI Construction are taking the MOVE challenge: moving for at least 30 minutes every day for the 30 days of Movember.
Check our Facebook and Instagram pages for photo updates of the BALI Construction men with their mustaches. Be on the look out for a Tom Selleck mustache and maybe even a handlebar mustache. The guys are having fun growing their mustaches for Movember! For many of them, this is their first mustache ever.
This is our first year participating in Movember and our goal is to raise $400! Please take a moment to visit our fundraising team page. We greatly appreciate your donations !
We are excited for the opportunity to raise money for men’s health and have a friendly office competition at the same time.
Thank you from the BALI Construction team

With all of the national days and months that exist, most are easily missed. (National Sourdough Bread Day, anyone?) There are so many silly days that seem like they were created by companies to increase sales. And then there are the national months that hold more significance.
Despite its importance, National Stress Awareness Month is one that gets less attention. April is the perfect time to discuss our stress levels and bring awareness on the subject to our peers.
A lot of companies have a corporate wellness program in place, but stress is not a hot topic.
Meditation, yoga, and exercise are common stress-relievers we hear about regularly. But, there are many more ways to “deal” with our stress.
The following articles touch on the lesser-known ways to reduce the stress in our busy lives.

Restaurants open left and right. But, if you are interested in opening a restaurant, it is harder work than you might think.
It’s not only about creating the concept and menu to serve. You need to think about what changes you will have to make to the space before you can open your doors to guests.
The following are the more obvious aspects of starting your restaurant:
- Creating a business plan-including food concept, target market
- Obtain funding
- Find your location
- Get necessary permits/licences
- Hire/train employees
- Promote your restaurant
There is more to opening a restaurant than the short list above.
So, here are some very important steps from the BALI Construction point of view.
1. Obtain funding to remodel the restaurant space:
It is highly likely that the restaurant concept and target market you have chosen to serve will not work with the current design of the space. You will need to have money to hire a general contractor and/or an architect as well as a designer.
2. Choose your general contractor to help you remodel:
When choosing who to hire, you need to consider the finished projects they have completed. For example, you don’t want to hire a contractor that mostly does residential work. You need to hire a professional that has done other restaurants. You will be competing with all the restaurants in the area. Consider how much this matters when choosing who to hire.
3. Meet with the general contractor to discuss the project start-up:
You have chosen who to work with! This is exciting. Your project will be starting soon! Meeting with the general contractor you chose is important to discuss the next steps.
- What are your expectations?
- Who will be managing your project?
- What is the timeline of your project?
4. Stay updated on your project during construction:
- How is the project going?
- Are there any issues this week?
- Is the project staying on budget/schedule?
5. A few final things:
- Provide your contractor with a “punch list” of final things for them to do
- Pass a final inspection
- Receive O&M manuals from your contractor so you can operate all of your new appliances/electronics
Now celebrate the completion of your restaurant remodel!
And know that the BALI Construction team will be stopping by soon to celebrate with you.
We are excited to share that we are featured in this week’s issue of the San Francisco Business Times!

thinks we are interesting and talented enough to be published.
We would like to thank our clients for getting us to where we are. Many of our projects come from
your kind referrals.
