In Woodridge IL, Maven Pavement Solutions is the elite commercial paving company because of our consistently exceptional work in all types of pavement installation and repair. Recently, we were able to bring this work ethic to bear on a concrete paving project for an ongoing client.
Our Woodridge IL commercial client needed a durable, stable loading dock for their business. First we evaluated the condition of the existing pavement base, and our paving expert found that it would support new concrete without any repairs. After framing out the new loading dock and adding wire mesh for added stability, we then installed 151 yds of heavy-duty concrete. We used PCC, or Portland cement concrete, which is a specific type of layered concrete pavement at least 8 inches thick with a gravel base. This particular pavement structure is designed to handle the weight of fully loaded commercial trucks, so it was perfect for our client.
To connect the new concrete loading dock to the existing pavement, we installed contraction joints at intervals. Concrete joints are placed to manage cracks and pavement shifting when heavy trucks drive over it. This loading dock paving job needed to be performed without interrupting business, so we worked on a Sunday to get it done in time.
Our commercial client was pleased with the quality of their new concrete loading dock and especially pleased with how we got it done so quickly. If your commercial property needs a pavement upgrade, contact us, and we’ll get a paving expert to you quickly.
We recently completed a storm drainage project at an industrial complex located in Woodridge, IL.
The customer, who operated a commercial facility, noticed that water was entering into the building through cracks in the floor as well as under windows during and after rain storms. With this being a major concern for any property owner, the customer knew it was time to pursue professional help. They were existing customers and knew that we could be trusted with this problem. We squeezed them in for a same day inspection.
We found that the ground water was actually backing up along the building. The water would find the path of least resistance, which was causing issues with the building itself. We decided that installing a drain tile system would create a path for the ground water to better flow back to the storm drain. We scheduled the storm drain repair job for the following Monday and our workers arrived early.
Our crew started by trenching along the foundation and footing of the building to install the drain tile. Then they dug the trench to the lower elevation of the foundation footing where they installed 6” HDPE ADNS N-12 perforated pipe with filter fabric and added in the trench to the storm sewer in the parking lot. Our team finished the job off by tying it back into the structure and back filling with CA-7 granular stone.
A few weeks after the job was complete there was a large storm, with significant rain fall and the client was very pleased to report that there were no flooding issues detected. They could not be any happier with their experience working with Maven Pavement Solutions!

They have over 20 years of expert knowledge and experience in paving, storm drain repairs, and snow removal. Their expertise has contributed to their upstanding reputation among commercial, residential, and governmental property owners.
A returning commercial client called our office about their parking lot drainage problems. As it turned out, their drain trench was getting clogging and that was requiring continuous maintenance. Our client needed a solution for this nonstop problem. We visited the property and discovered the sides of the trench drain collapsing. Our client did not want to replace with another trench drain, so we devised another plan.
We decided to remove the trench drain completely and install standard inlets to tie to the existing storm drain system. The only problem was that the surrounding area of the parking lot was paved flat because of this trench drain, so we had to correct this additional drainage issue as well.
We removed approximately 200 feet of the failing trench drain and we replaced with storm style sewers. We tied these inlets to the existing storm system, but we still had to fix the flat parking lot. Therefore, we repaved the minimum area required to accommodate the positive drainage. The customer was thrilled with the results saying how great the parking lot and drain system works now after a storm.
