Huntley High School continues to use reclaiming and recycling techniques after job success
Decrease Cost, Increase Structural Integrity. That's a Win-Win!
Base Stabilization was selected for its efficiency and cost savings over total removal and replacement. Problems with failing pavement layers, but not deep subgrade issues, made their parking lot a perfect candidate for Base Stabilization.
The asphalt in place was failing so badly that it was removed entirely. The estimated removal and replacement of the aggregate could have been as much as $275,000. The budget for this repair was fixed far below the potential cost to remove and replace the aggregate base. The school needed to find an alternative solution that would not compromise quality.
The Proposed Approach
The general contractor on the project suggested a value engineered Base Stabilization of 5% cement, tilled at 12″ to help save the school thousands of dollars .
