We have handled major earthwork jobs ranging from commercial shopping center developments to residential developments to highways / access roads. We use a combination approach of old-school pencil-and-paper calculations and the latest estimating software available to provide clear, reliable estimates that can help make sense of it all. Our employees stick with us so you can be sure any decision made in the field is going to be made with a seasoned understanding of what we do.
In addition to being able to correctly and safely carry out a deep excavation, a project of this nature also needs to be planned and overseen by a qualified company like Blount who is capable of assessing the specific needs and risks of this type of construction task. Our ability to work in a confined area is the solution for technically challenging deep excavation projects in urban areas.
Our advantages include a professionally degreed, safety conscious staff, strong relationships with government and local agencies, our own equipment and service shop to speed construction, and we are fiscally strong with a large bonding capacity. We also have in house locating and surveying which makes our projects run safer and faster.
Heavy duty roadways endure constant abuse from traffic and exposure to the elements. Blount Construction exclusively deploys HA5 to get the longest life out of your roads. This emulsified High Density Mineral Bond is engineered with a near neutral charge that is able to hold a precise blend of fine aggregates. HA5’s preservation qualities excel at limiting oxidative damage from moisture and UV rays. Simply put, nothing is better at extending your transportation dollar further.
Why choose Expanded Asphalt Base Stabilization?
It is more resistant to water penetration and it's usually less expensive. The rapid strength gain from use of foamed emulsion means that traffic may be introduced onto the recycled road as soon as compaction is complete.
FDR rebuilds worn out asphalt pavements by recycling the existing roadway. The old asphalt and base materials are pulverized, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a strong, durable base for either an asphalt or concrete surface.
We use concrete for flatwork features that either need more support from a substrate, like dumpster pads or need to be perfectly straight and smooth, like with ADA accessible ramps. Concrete is a versatile construction material and allows us to apply different finishes and textures.
Concrete is a cost effective and low maintenance surface paving solution. Concrete also has a low resistance making it a premium surface to boost car’s fuel efficiency and minimize tire wear. With different forms of finishing, the top layer of concrete can be grooved to allow for water to flow off of the surface.
Lime quickly improves the soil condition during construction and can add long term improvements to key soil properties. Lime can be used to stabilize pavement subgrade soil containing clay which generates long term strength and reduces swell potential.
It’s difficult to reach the soil moisture and compaction requirements established by the project civil or geotechnical engineer. Soil modification reduces the soil placticity, aids compaction and increases strength.
Muddy site conditions make for difficult working conditions making access difficult for construction vehicles. Wet, poorly compacted soil makes for poor pavement support and embankment/fill. Soil drying reduces the soil moisture content improving accessability of the roadway.
As a highway, street and road contractor, there is a strong demand to improve the infrastructure across the Southeast.
Our experienced team of estimators is highly qualified to give you an accurate estimate with several options on how to address your asphalt issues.
