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.
