Vetted, Hand-Picked General Contractors by Pavement Services Corporation
Best in class general contractors ensure high quality work is completed on-time and within budget
At Pavement Services Corporation all of our work is direct and performed by our own teams. We work with building owners and managers, providing a full range of on-site asphalt and concrete solutions. In the rare circumstance that we have to bring in a general contractor, PSC only provides fully vetted, reputable partners to work alongside us.
Such was the case for the asphalt parking lot overlay project at the new Cougar football indoor practice facility located at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. PSC teamed up with the great folks at EMI Construction Inc. from Tomball, Texas to complete one of the last remaining construction tasks associated with the project.
Working with University of Houston to Improve Infrastructure for Athletes
While not one of our largest jobs, PSC considers it to be one of its marquis projects of 2017. A high level of visibility and importance belongs to this facility as it is part of the University of Houston’s Athletic Department. It also attracts top talent from Texas cities such as Spring, Belton, Midlothian, League City, DeSoto, Pearland and Converse. The goal is to also draw interest from other metropolitan areas in Texas such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio.
“I think this is the nicest in the country. It’s the most functional and technologically advanced practice facility, and it’s going to be a huge recruiting tool and competitive advantage for our football program moving forward”, said former University of Houston Vice President, Hunter Yurachek.
Innovative Technique for Concrete Overlay & Resurfacing
The paving project consisted of 39,950 sq. ft. of 1.5” Hot Mix Concrete Overlay (HMAC Type D). The prep work included a wedge cut around the entire perimeter. A wedge cut is a quality control procedure performed at the junction, between the new overlay and existing asphalt pavement or concrete gutter. It’s a process by which our team will “plane off” the equal depth of the proposed overlay at these junctions in order to keep the thickness of the overlay consistent all the way through to the joint.
This approach eliminates “feathered edges” which tend to ravel and flake off at the joint. An added benefit is that it helps promote positive drainage and it is considered a best practice when overlaying any parking lot. Pavement Services can provide a variety of options to choose from that fit your construction requirements.
We strive to perform quality, professionally managed asphalt and concrete pavement work to an array of industries. For more information on our services or to receive a free onsite inspection, please call 1-800-NO-POTHOLE (667-6846) or Contact Us.
