Since 1984, State and Local Municipalities, major Property Management corporations, Hospitals, Religious Organizations, Architects, and School Districts have looked to McNeil Engineering for their pavement consulting, pavement design, repair, and maintenance needs.
As a full-service Pavement Consulting Firm, we specialize in all aspects of concrete, asphalt, recycled materials, and other pavement systems. We can provide all of your pavement design needs, from existing condition evaluations and estimates for recommended repairs, to complete replacement design, documentation, and project management. Let’s take a closer look at our pavement consulting capabilities.
New parking lot design
The parking lot of a structure might seem like an afterthought, but really it’s the hub that everything else revolves around. Think about it: a spacious, easy-to-navigate parking lot can set your business apart from the competition while preventing confusion, fender benders and a chaotic parking situation.
Our pavement consulting experts will work one-on-one with you and your team to determine what exactly your parking needs entail. For example, a retail store or warehouse will need room for loading docks and shipment intakes, while a law firm or accounting practice will only require enough parking room for employees and clients.
Whatever you require, we’re committed to making it happen. No project is too big or too small, and we’re always looking to push our creative limits when it comes to parking lot design.
Re-engineering of existing parking lots
Is your parking lot looking worse for wear? Are there cracks, bubbles, potholes and missing pieces of asphalt throughout? Has the paint on the parking lines faded to the point where they’re nearly impossible to see? Not only does this look bad and have the potential to drive customers away, it can also lead to flat tires, misalignment and other more serious automobile-related accidents or injuries.
As a business owner, the parking lot might not be your main concern, but it’s one of the first things a new customer or potential client will see. Take action to beautify your property now. As the summer months set in, triple-digit temperatures and humidity can damage your asphalt even further.
Existing condition analysis
Maybe your parking lot looks like it’s in pretty good shape, but it’s been a decade or two since you last had it inspected. Our pavement consulting experts can assist you with this as well.
Using 3D laser scanning technology and years of knowledge of experience, they can inspect your parking areas for damage, weakness or potential trouble spots. Following a thorough inspection, they will be able to provide you with a list of steps and suggestions that you can take in order to improve the strength and condition of your parking areas and driveways.
Concrete parking structure evaluation
If you manage a major business park or multi-use shopping area, you likely have a concrete parking structure on your premises. While these monoliths of modern society are durable and resilient, they too wear down and become weaker as time marches on.
Regularly inspecting your parking structure for signs of wear and tear or other structural issues is one of the easiest ways to prevent a catastrophe from happening. Our pavement consulting experts can work with you to improve safety, fortify your structure and ensure that it stays in great shape for years to come.
Drainage and slope solutions
Rainwater, snowmelt and even sprinkler runoff can take a toll on your parking areas, leading to cracks, chips and significant erosion. However, with carefully-designed drainage and slope solutions, the risk is far less and much of the damage can be prevented. If you have had to re-pave your parking lot frequently, it may be due to a lack of drainage. We can assist you in this effort as well.
If you’re in need of pavement consulting, we’re here to help
As you can see, we know a thing or two about paving consulting, pavement and parking lot safety in general. Whether you’re looking to improve your current lot, or are preparing to break ground on something that’s brand new, we would love to assist you in your efforts.
