Parking lot construction is more than creating an attractive design or giving customers a place to park. Gunn Construction addresses parking lot safety and will ensure the space best serves the business and the driver. Functionality, accessibility, and design are equally important in every parking lot.
We understand a parking lot requires a surface sloped for proper drainage, the ability to handle weight demands, and skillfully planned resistance to the elements. The expert team at Gunn Construction is well-versed in all aspects of parking lot construction and will look at each unique space to make recommendations for your particular situation. We have years of experience and the proper equipment for any paving project.
Gunn Construction also has experience meeting standards and requirements unique to each parking lot construction project. Let us assist with general parking lot planning, pavement design considerations, planned stage construction, and construction recommendations for the job. We are your trusted source for the right knowledge, technology, equipment, engineers, and concrete or rock base construction and design.
A good finished product is always a result of the best in preparation. We remove all rock, debris, and vegetation, and move or protect all utilities before grading and compacting the area to eliminate yielding or pumping of the soil beneath the new parking lot. Then comes the subgrade for the foundation for the pavement structure. We see that it is properly compacted and graded.
Parking lot drainage problems often cause pavement failures, especially where irrigation comes into play. We know that it is critical to keep standing and flowing water away from the subgrade soil to promote strength and stability. Through proper parking lot construction, we ensure surfaces have a minimum slope of two percent or ¼ an inch per foot and adjust curbs, gutters, ramps, v-pans, and planters accordingly to account for runoff.
