Process & Capabilities
Our approach at U.S. Pavement Services is based largely on where our clients need us most. Our 30+ years of experience help shape our methodology to learning customer needs, understanding existing strengths, and leveraging our in-house capabilities to provide those most value-added solution to our clients.
From developing a complete and comprehensive parking lot program to participating in existing program RFPs, U.S. Pavement Services is positioned to meet clients where they are in terms of parking lot program development and sophistication. We offer the following main elements to help participate in existing parking lot programs, augment developing programs, or assist in creating new programs:
Reactive or Repair/Maintenance
U.S. Pavement Services has the geographic reach and experience to provide immediate coverage and 24-hour response time for inevitable potholes or other liability issues that arise. We are experienced in working with many facility management portals including ServiceChannel, WorkOasis, fmPilot, Corrigo, Maximo, Ariba, and more.
Our process includes immediate response to work order requests; communication with the store-level as appropriate; and verified quality-control of all completed work. Our dispatchers are all trained in the scopes of work performed to help provide store-level, district-level, and corporate-level leadership with the necessary information to stay ahead of any concerns.
We understand the need to meet and exceed service-level agreements (SLAs) and measure our own performance internally against key performance indicators on a daily basis. Our entire organization is committed to a two-part goal: (1) no downtime to our customer store locations and (2) beating customer metrics with our own data measurement and performance.
Site Evaluation & Budget Creation
For evaluating your portfolio of sites to help assess immediate and long-term needs, U.S. Pavement Services helps you create a tiered system to establish annual budgets of parking lot needs.
We start by collecting on-site information including demographics (square footage, number of stalls, ADA elements) and short-term pavement and concrete needs. A clear, easy-to-understand diagram of repair needs and pictures supporting recommendations is provided in an organized, web-based file system. From there, we are able to present the data in a proprietary database that allows our customers to create tiers of locations, and therefore annual budgets for parking lot needs going forward. All deliverables are easily shareable with colleagues, supervisors, or with procurement.
These deliverables and the store portfolio database is designed to help create a budget for a parking lot program but can also easily be used to establish a parking lot program RFP.

U.S. Pavement Services includes in-house, employees to oversee on-site to ensure specifications are met, materials installed are sufficient, and overall work performance is compliant.
Coordination, Delivery & Quality Control
At U.S. Pavement Services, our entire organization is built around ensuring we perform a top-quality job while staying close to invisible to our customers and to their customers/guests on-site. We deliver on the promised level of service by way of organized pre-construction meetings, phasing plans, due diligence on municipality or other requirements for work performance, and tracking documentation of planning to quickly alleviate inevitable construction issues.
We understand that pavement and concrete work can be intrusive to store operations. Our crews, project managers, and partners all are trained multiple times annually on a concept we call “retail paving” — Performing our work not in a vacuum but doing so on an active, open, and busy store location. Our goal is perform our work to exceed quality expectations while not seeing any impact to store operations and store sales.
Our quality control steps help ensure we perform to these promises. We have a 20-point project management review that includes elements of quality, aesthetics, traffic control and safety, store-level leadership satisfaction, and overall likelihood to recommend us in the future. All of these points are measured and tracked to ensure the best performing crews and project managers are rewarded and that outliers are addressed quickly to guarantee necessary improvement.
