Technology improves our lives in many ways, from smart homes and cars to more efficient heating and cooling systems. The same is true when it comes to the quality of your parking lot. It is no exaggeration to say that advances in technology have changed the way we pave, offering better results and faster completion times. At NVM Paving & Concrete, we embrace changes that allow us to serve our customers better.
For example, laser technology is useful in determining the proper slope and grade of a site. Precision measurements make sure the parking lot drains properly and eliminates areas of standing water. This method beats the old way of using a site glass or transit in connection with a plum-bob and linker rod.
Advances in Removal and Tear Off
Removing outdated asphalt used to require a walk-behind road saw, equipped with a diamond blade, to cut up the old surface. Now, new hydraulic technology enables teams to use a roadhog to cut divisions in the asphalt. The benefits of this approach are numerous:
- Quicker removal times
- More efficient use of work crews
- Greater savings on the overall project
Our customers enjoy the advantages of savings and a shorter time frame from start to finish. It also shortens any disruptions during business hours.
Improvements in Grade and Slope Controls
Advanced equipment such as a motor grader allows operators to follow established grade grids. This version is more accurate than older graders and compacters that were not able to test grade and slope. The result of this technological advancement is better drainage for asphalt parking and the prevention of uneven areas that could weaken asphalt.
