Many engineering issues should be considered before you tackle a retaining wall.
Retaining walls seem like a simple concept in theory, but there are some engineering issues that need to be addressed with most retaining walls. Continue reading Not All Retaining Walls Are the Same
Most people likely don’t pay a great deal of attention to curbs, and they may not even realize that there are a number of different types of concrete curbing. For those of us in the concrete and asphalt industry like Tucker Paving is, we know there are several different types of concrete curbing, and each has its own purpose. Explore the different types of concrete curbing below. Continue reading Different Types of Concrete Curbing
Many landowners consider building storage units on their property. Generally, it’s a good investment, as storage units generate income and don’t require an excessive amount of maintenance. Continue reading Determining the Right Amount of Space for a Self Storage Building
Parking lots take a lot of abuse; vehicles weighing a ton or more drive all over them every day, the sun beats down on them, and roots and other forces of nature exert pressure on them from below. Continue reading The Advantage of Parking Lot Sealcoating
Some people think all they need to know about the striping on the roads—also called road lines—is “to keep it between the mustard and the mayonnaise.” That is, between the yellow center line and the white line of the shoulder. However, the lines in the road give information and instructions on what drivers can and cannot do while driving, and every driver with a valid license is expected to know the rules of the road, including the meanings of the lines. Continue reading What Does the Striping Mean On Our Roadways?
Television personality Fred Rogers once said, “Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.” This is true of many demolition projects; something old has reached the end of its usefulness, and it’s being demolished to make way for something new. It might be a building, a parking lot, a roadway, or a sidewalk, and there are usually plans to put something new in that space. Continue reading The Uses for Recycled Aggregate
When laying down new roads, driveways, parking lots, or other impervious surfaces, it’s important to have the proper drainage. Weather happens, there’s nothing we can do about that, but flooding doesn’t need to be a major issue – with the right drainage. Once you’ve got your drainage points picked out it’s time to start working on the stormwater piping. Continue reading What You Should Know About Stormwater Piping
In our technology-driven world, everyone is looking to build a better mousetrap. With Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), it’s possible. This way of working involves collaboration between designers, architects, contractors, and end users from beginning to end. The key to this kind of team effort is clear, honest communication. That responsibility lies with every member of the team. Continue reading What Is Integrated Project Delivery?
When Tucker Paving, Inc., was launched right around Thanksgiving in 1994, our bread-and-butter service was paving — road and street paving, parking lot paving, and related jobs — and our focus was on being the very best locally in that line of construction. Continue reading Differences Between Sanitary & Storm Sewers
Have you ever considered the engineering and planning that goes into roadways? The thought and study that goes into roads and highways is extensive, and the main focus is on safety. This means that intersection safety is an important topic when it comes to road safety and road planning. Continue reading Importance of Intersection Safety
