This week at Empire Parking Lot Services, we did some asphalt repairs at the Popeye's Chicken restaurant in the city of San Bernardino. (please note that this project was actually done in June of 2011). These repairs included pothole patching and seal coating, as well as parking lot striping, and bringing some handicap signs into compliance with the ADA. The customer wanted to address as many of his parking lot repair issues as possible, but he was on a limited budget. Our estimator discussed his options and created a scope of work that met his needs while staying within his budget. Learn more about this project by reading below or watching the video.

This asphalt repair project was actually part of a multi facility package that included about (5) restaurants owned by the same franchisee. As mentioned above the customer was looking to get as much bang for their buck when it came to their budget. They wanted to address three concerns with these repairs including liabilities, compliance, and esthetic's. The first repair we decided to focus on was the liability. This meant we had to repair the potholes that had developed over the last few years throughout their parking lot. Several potholes had opened up including a few near the entrance where folks entered the restaurant. Once these were patched with asphalt the liability was all but gone. It was a simple fix for a simple problem. With the major liability gone we then turned to their next priority which was the esthetic's issue. Nothing makes more visual impact on a small restaurant like this than a fresh application of seal coat on the parking lot. With the parking lot looking black and new again, we proceeded to paint some new parking lot markings. The customer chose to go with a bright yellow color which is fine to do. While the freshly painted parking lines and arrows were drying, we turned to the last concern which was code Compliance. The customer was taking proactive steps to get their parking lot into compliance with the ADA codes that mandate handicap parking for disabled customers. The updates included layout of new compliant disabled parking spaces and cross hatch as well as the installation of new ADA signs at the parking lot entrance and at the handicap stalls. With all of our customer's concerns address, the project was completed and turned back over to them. All in all the down time to the restaurants parking lot was limited to non critical hours as far as the restaurants busiest times are concerned. The customers parking lot was only partially closed during the paving portion of the project, and we had the parking lot sealed and striped all within the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 pm so we wouldn't affect their lunch crowd rush. The customer was extremely pleased with our performance and we were pleased with how well the project came out.
