UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON | ASPHALT OVERLAY PROJECT | HOUSTON, TX

BUSINESS WITH GENERAL CONTRACTORS – ASPHALT OVERLAY IN HOUSTON

While our primary customer base is working directly with Building Owners and Managers, Pavement Services Corporation does have a few select General Contractors we do business with as a sub-contractor.  Such was the case for this asphalt parking lot overlay at the new indoor practice facility constructed for the University of Houston Cougar Football Team 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 indoor practice facility construction.

While the project is small, PSC considers it to be one of our marquis projects in 2017, given the high visibility and the importance of this facility to the U of H Athletic Department. The 2018 Signing Class brought student athletes from Texas cities like Spring, Belton, Midlothian, League City, DeSoto, Pearland, and Converse, and athletic officials are hopeful of drawing interest from other metropolitan areas in Texas such as Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin, and San Antonio.

Referring to the new facility, former U of H Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics, Hunter Yurachek says, “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.” (source: Houston Chronicle, UH’s Indoor Football Facility Another Big Step, by Joseph Duarte, 11/14/2017)

The paving project consisted of 39,950 square feet of 1.5” Hot Mix Concrete Overlay (HMAC Type D).  The prep work included a wedge cut around the perimeter. A wedge cut is a quality control procedure performed at the junction between the new overlay and existing asphalt pavement or concrete gutters.  It’s a process by which we 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 to the joint.  This eliminates “feathered edges” which tend to ravel and flake off at the joint.  An added benefit is that it helps to promote positive drainage once the new overlay re-surfacing is complete. It is a ‘best practice’ when overlaying any parking lot, and it will be shown as an option on PSC proposals.
