When comparing asphalt to concrete paving on our current industrial park, we chose concrete. Concrete parking lots aren’t just standard concrete anymore. Maintenance and repair are also discussed.
Technical References The following are the standard details for concrete pavement: Due to its light color, concrete stays cooler than other paving materials. Learn more about roller compacted concrete. Any of these factors can, and will, destroy concrete that is installed with a mix that isn’t properly proportioned.
Concrete pavements are also a key element of the Cool Communities movement. With concrete, it’s easy!
The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with acu technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts. Let’s look at how to design and build concrete parking lots and also why concrete parking lots are preferable to asphalt.
Concrete parking areas offer superior performance when compared to pavement alternatives. Here are a few innovative alternatives:.
The savings, when using concrete, are: They are used for storage of vehicles and goods. Why and when should I cure my concrete pavement? Contraction joints can be sawed as early as 3 hours after placement, but do not exceed the 12th hour.
The flexibility in concrete pavement design makes it unnecessary to haul special subbase materials to the site.
The rule-of-thumb for maximum joint spacing is 30 times the pavement thickness converts in unit of feet i. Here are a few of the best places:. Pavement durability relies on a good surface layer, freeze-thaw resistance and overall 33r-01. If followed, ACI They provide maneuvering areas for vehicles and access for delivery and distribution vehicles.

When these factors are considered, concrete wins the race. Inadequate acci of backfill material around these structures can result in loss of support for the pavement. Concrete parking lots, on the other hand, require little upkeep over their year design life – keeping maintenance costs to a minimum. All we need are the current CAD drawings and wci few pieces of project information.
Over its lifetime, the most expensive pavement is a typical asphalt pavement which is cheaper to build initially, but is under-designed in load-carrying capacity and ends up with high maintenance costs.
International Concrete Abstracts Portal
There’s quite a bit of information on the web about concrete parking lots. Appears on pages s: A concrete parking lot is really nothing more than an exterior slab on ground or slab on grade. The isolation joint material must be compressible and thick enough to allow such movement. How can I be sure I will get a quality end product?
Concrete Parking Lots
Concrete parking lots shout quality 330r-10 customers, tenants, and employees, before they even walk through the door. Perhaps what defines it as a parking lot, and what makes it a little different to design and build, is the sloped surface for drainage, the ability to handle heavy vehicular loads, and severe environmental exposure. Do not stabilize the subbase Use integral curb Specify psi concrete Do not use reinforcement Do not seal joints.
For projects less than 50, square feet, the initial cost may be less or equal to that of asphalt, provided 3330r-01 both systems have the same structural number SN. Do not wait until the next day!
