We completed another parking lot pavement project in Joliet, IL. This project was for an existing commercial client who noticed that their concrete was in poor condition and was severely cracked. As this client was a previous customer of ours, they knew we could be trusted so they called us right away to schedule an inspection.
We determined that removing and replacing the concrete dolly pad was the best plan of action and the customer agreed. We made it back to the job site for the parking lot replacement early the next week. Knowing that the customer had to lose all of their trailer parking in order for us to do the job, we worked with them and scheduled the project for their slowest time of the year, working on a Saturday when they were closed. We removed and replaced approximately 5700 square feet of 8” concrete dolly pad. We took this work on in less than one day in order to minimize the impact on the client’s business.
The project was executed on time and the end result exceeded our clients expectations.. Our customer reached out to us to thank us not only for the nice looking job but also for the flexibility in scheduling.
We recently took on a pavement and repair project for a commercial client in Elwood, just south of Joliet, IL.
The customer, who we have worked with previously, noticed that the parking lot was having issues, with major cracks and bumps that had developed. Concerned, they reached out to us. The main area of problem was found in the inbound lane to their distribution facility. In this area, heavy truck traffic would pull in and stop at the guard shack. This repeated action in combination of heavy loads took a beating on the asphalt, causing it to fail prematurely.
We headed out to their jobsite for an assessment later that week. We decided that replacing the asphalt in this section with high quality concrete would be the most cost effective solution. The biggest challenge was in the main entrance area but we were sure we could handle it.
The customer happily agreed to have us do the project and we scheduled it for the following Saturday, in attempt to minimize the impact on the client’s operation. We arrived early and ready to work. We removed approximately 7,000 square feet of asphalt that was severely cracked and failing. We regraded the base material to accommodate 8” of concrete and poured 7,000 square feet of 8” concrete, ensuring that the highly trafficked area would be better able to withstand the type of activity it regularly accommodates.
Our clients told us they were thankful for the quick job and that we were able to get to it right away. They also appreciated that we tackled the job on a day that was best-suited for their operations.
