Paving a building site prior to completion of construction has several benefits:
- Reduces erosion. Site paving covers the underlying subgrade and can significantly lessen the chances of an erosion.
- Reduces erection and storage costs. A smooth, hard, solid surface improves crane, forklift and hoist mobility. An asphalt-treated base pavement acts as an ideal materials storage pad, helping to keep building materials clean, organized and out of the mud or dust of the season.
- Reduces grading cost and time. With an asphalt-treated base, the site need only be graded once. Without site paving areas of heavy construction traffic may need to be periodically graded.
- Removes the need for costly select material. With asphalt being budget friendly, there is no need to look for another material that, at the same time, ensures a floor slab that is dry and waterproof.
For many local projects, contractors usually use asphalt for repaving, rather than laying down a brand new road.
