NRMCA Boot Camp Contractor Overlays Lot While Keeping Business Office Open
Dylan Milis, owner of Milis Flatwork in Kaukauna, WI, sent photos this week of a fast track parking lot overlay project he recently completed for a doctor’s office near his shop, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen. Milis, a firm believer that opportunity is everywhere, reports the project is 10 minutes from his business location, Hansen said. Meeting the owner’s requirements of no down time, the project was prepped early in the week, requiring 5,000 square feet of the existing pavement to be removed to make grade transition work. Milis also overlaid the existing concrete curb on two island in the middle of the lot, using details from the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots to complete the transition challenges on the 70,000 square foot project (see before and after photos below).
"It was a crazy schedule to prep in stages during the week to be ready to place concrete on Thursday and Friday, then clean up and stripe on Saturday so the patients could use the full lot on Monday," Milis recounted.
Millis, an American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) member, will be the featured speaker at NRMCA's ConcreteWorks on Tuesday, October 3, from 11 a.m. to noon in a Paving session titled NRMCA and Contractor Partnering: A Success Model for Moving Your Paving Market.
