Designing the Pavement System
When designing a commercial pavement system, a number of factors come into play - soil type, stormwater management needs (in the case of PICPs), vehicular load requirements, local regulations, and more. The Belgard commercial hardscape design experts can help you design a system with the proper base and paver size, shape, texture, and laying pattern to handle the specific needs of each project.
Concrete or Asphalt Overlays
Often, a paver system is planned for installation where an existing concrete or asphalt pavement is already in place. In many cases, the Belgard commercial design services team can provide guidance on the best overlay option based on traffic and usage needs, thereby avoiding the costly removal of the existing pavement.
Handling H-20/HS-20 Loading
When a project involves a suspended system, such as a bridge or underground storage reservoir, there is a need for the commercial site design team to accommodate H-20 or HS-20 loads. Belgard consultants can work with design teams to design pavement or wall sections that will not only meet H-20/HS-20 loading requirements, but exceed them by providing as much as 40 times the required strength.
Ensuring Compliance and Public Safety
The Belgard commercial hardscape design experts are well-versed in meeting the 2010 ADA Standards for floor and ground surfaces and can help you choose the right products to meet the accessible design needs for both slip resistance and detectable warning surfaces.
SRW Slope Stabilization
Soil stabilization is the key to maintaining the integrity of slope and the project site. The experts at Belgard can help you create an SRW design plan that will increase usable land, prevent erosion and runoff, make the site safer, and improve aesthetics.
Soil erosion and runoff must be managed both during and after construction of a project to make sites both usable and safe. The Belgard design services team can help you create a retaining wall and PICP plan that can be a multi-faceted solution to erosion control and stormwater management.
