The Washoe County School District awarded Summit Engineering a contract for the preparation of construction plans and technical specifications for WCSD 2017 Asphalt Pavement Corrective and Preventive Maintenance Project. Sixteen schools were included in the project. Overall parking areas, general conditions, and the existing quality of asphalt pavement were identified by WCSD as units that were in need of corrective and preventive pavement treatment.
In June 2017, Summit provided an initial field review of each proposed site to assess the scope and general condition of the overall parking areas and the quality of existing asphalt pavement which became the basis for recommendations. Summit’s detailed assessment of each of the schools was performed which identified all cracking that required corrective treatment prior to the preventive slurry seal and/or micro paving operation. Corrective work was classified as “cut/remove/patch” or “clean/rout/crack” seal. Some significantly large areas of distress were identified for removal and replacement of pavement. 30% ACAD drawings, were provided to WCSD to graphically show the field findings on a prepared set of drawings. In the 90% plan development stage, Summit incorporated all comments received from the 30% review.
