Solutions to industrial pavement challenges provide lessons for all projects

Issues of scheduling, communications and quality control are discussed in this special branch of concrete pavements. Due to the fact that these projects are industrial in nature, as opposed to highway-related, owners and general contractors are usually focused on the building, not the paving, and it can be a challenge for them to understand or take into account the pavement process. Solutions, such as scheduling work at night when other trades are not onsite, can be necessary in order to meet deadlines. Examples of various construction projects are used to illustrate lessons in terms of flexibility (in scheduling) and knowledge sharing, as well as new technologies, such as industrial pavement design and analysis software.
