Concrete Pavement Construction Basics: Site Preparation Mobile App

The Concrete Pavement Construction Basics: Site Preparation Mobile App is a must have for construction managers of cement and asphalt projects.

When the construction plan is being developed it is critical to develop all the appropriate documentation to ensure the construction site surface is carefully prepared. Customize this checklist-style app to build your requirements for everything from road construction, sidewalk or repair of cracks in a cement driveway.

The app can track detailed information for preparing and stabilizing the subgrade, establishing control mechanisms (the stringline), compaction and trimming, placing dowel baskets, and mitigating cement failures.

The app can also be used to identify issues with the material and resources to be used whether that be Portland cement, hot mix asphalt, or fine or coarse aggregate.

Save all this information securely to the cloud for easy access via cell phone, tablet or PC.
