This week Empire Parking lot Services was hired to perform some concrete and asphalt repairs at a local Pasadena strip center. Pasadena is in Southern California and although they are famous for hosting the Rose Bowl football game and Tournament of Roses Parade, Pasadena is the home to many scientific and cultural institutions, including the California Institute of Technology, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Fuller Theological Seminary, Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts-Pasadena, and the Norton Simon Museum of Art and the Pacific Asia Museum. Whoosh talk about accomplishments. My opinion about Pasadena is that it is one of California’s best kept secrets in terms of places to work, play, play, and go to school. That’s right I said play twice. It’s a very fun city.
The reason for these repairs was ADA related. The center’s handicap parking spaces were not up to code, and some asphalt and concrete repairs needed to be done in order to achieve compliance. The repairs included fixing the asphalts grade for the handicap parking stalls, as well as the parking lot striping, handicap signs, and some concrete work. Empire Parking Lot Services was contacted by a local contractor that needed to have these repairs done for their house account. They hired Empire Parking Lot Services because we have a reputation for being able to achieve proper grade on these types of ADA projects. Many asphalt repairs companies can patch a hole, or pave a parking lot, but when it comes to achieving a grade that gradually drops is a little more complex and is easy to mess up. This ADA project was pretty straight forward. Once the concrete was dry it was time to block off the work area and fix the asphalt. After a couple of hours we had the grade set and the asphalt laid and rolled. With the asphalt done we installed the handicap striping, signs, and truncated domes all to the most current Cal DAG standards. Once the paint was dry we opened up the area and turned it back over to the store.
