Concrete has traditionally been perceived as the higher priced but longer lasting material for streets and parking lots. Now, with asphalt prices up significantly in the last 3 years, concrete is more competitive in terms of initial cost to go along with its long-standing advantage in life cycle costs. Now property owners can enjoy the benefits of concrete including long service life and low maintenance along with environmental benefits including cooler surfaces and reduced lighting requirements.
This course provides detailed instruction on how to design and build concrete streets and parking lots. It provides details of pavement design including traffic loads and pavement stresses.
Concrete properties and thickness design are presented in detail. Recommendations for subgrade support and pavement jointing are provided. Concrete materials are presented including discussions on strength, workability and durability. Recommended specifications are provided. Construction techniques, inspection, testing, maintenance and repair are discussed. Additional detail will be provided on cost estimating, cost -benefit analysis, and life cycle cost.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This seminar will provide attendees with state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies for designing, specifying and building concrete streets and parking lots. Attendees will be able to provide their clients with the best possible solutions to their street and parking needs. They will provide clients with the benefits of concrete pavements including long service life and low maintenance.
