Asphalt Carpark Construction Stages

Site Preparation

Like in any other project, a good foundation is vital for a good product that is why site preparation is a key component of our process. The area needs to be appropriately prepared before construction can begin. We clear the area of debris, level the site as well as attend to roots and other obstructions. By conducting a thorough site preparation, we will improve the lifespan of your asphalt car park, reduce the likelihood of potholes and reduce your long-term maintenance fees.

Drainage Installation

As with the site preparation, drainage installation is crucial to increase the longevity of your asphalt car park. With very little water absorption, asphalt needs adequate drainage to prevent water buildup which can lead to structural damage. Achieving an effective drainage solution involves a correct slope gradient, the use of suitable materials, and an accurate project plan

Base Work

The base work forms the foundation for the asphalt to be laid cleanly on top. It’s the base that sits underneath that allows the asphalt to be successfully reinforced. It involves compacting the lower level of soil, which is then covered in a base mix of typically road base or limestone.


Depending on the location, space, and style, some car parks may include a form of kerbing. While not essential for all car parks, kerbing is recommended if the edge of the asphalt is regularly being driven over. Kerbing also offers a nicer finish on edges and corners, giving the asphalt a cleaner look. There are many styles of kerbing that can be customised to suit the design and location.

Speed Humps

Speed humps are installed in certain car parks to slow down traffic and maintain a safe environment. As with kerbs they are customised to the specifications and measurements of the car park. Some areas may need larger more robust speed humps for a larger or more frequent level of traffic. Smaller or multiple-speed humps may be more applicable for smaller car parks. All requirements will be included in the construction plan.

Pedestrian Crossings and Wheelchair Ramps

Due to their nature, most car parks are high pedestrian access areas. This means pedestrian crossings can become very important to car park safety. They can be designed and marked out in places of high traffic. Wheelchair ramps might also need to be included in car parks that have steep inclines or entrances that have limited access.

Machine or Hand Laid Asphalt

These are the two main methods used in asphalt surfacing. While heavy machines such as rollers and asphalt trucks make the construction much easier, smaller car parks may also be hand laid. It all depends on the scale, budget, and plan of the project.

Line marking

Once the construction of the car park has been completed, the final stage of the process is line marking. Line marking in a car park can be to mark parking bays, highlight certain areas, or direct traffic. It is essential a professional asphalt company does the line marking; they need to be long-lasting and contrasting to stand out from the asphalt. If not marked clearly or if lines start to fade, they can quickly become a safety issue.
