Apartment Complex Parking Lot Pavement Assessment

CA was retained to investigate the cause(s) of the distress observed in the concrete pavement parking lots at a complex in Murphy, Texas. The complex was comprised of four buildings and each had one or two concrete pavement parking lots surrounding it that were connected with inner drives throughout the complex. The parking lots consisted of both heavy and regular duty pavements. CA’s site visits consisted of performing a detailed survey of the cracked areas in the pavement including photo documentation, collection of concrete cores and soil samples, and observation of the demolition of selected areas of pavement. The results from the forensic examination of the concrete cores, soil samples, and construction records provided the necessary data for CA’s expert opinions regarding concrete repair methods for the pavement areas.
