Commissioning New Paving Systems

An important tracking area for each new Paving system is to maintain documents and histories for reference. 

As Built Documentation

The process of building an accurate Paving Assessment report requires a trained Paving observer with experience with the Paving system being assessed.  With due diligence, the observer should complete R&D of site and building history; organize records using an industry standard for identifying materials and systems in a professional database to record accurate assessment data.

PavingPro™ is a commercially available solution that provides the as built detail and daily observations to document the system construction information as part of new Paving commissioning and quality assurance observation reporting.

An important tracking area for each Paving system is to maintain documents and histories for reference.  Use the warranty tracking area in the database to add the warranty information, issued by, warranty number, issued date, expiry date.

All inspections, where observations were made should be listed by the name the firm and the inspector who made the observations, a list of the observed defects and his/her recommendations.  Often the building manager may refer to the past observations find open work items that can be added to a service request.

The Paving service goal for many commercial building owners and their managers is to maintain building/Paving assets to support the business mission. Like other business assets, there is a capital cost to acquire the asset, costs to keep the asset in working condition and replacement at the end of its useful life. Paving Asset Management is the activities that support the life cycle management of Paving systems.

An important step is documenting the as built construction of the Paving system. The commissioning process allows the design documents and the contractor on site modifications to the specification to be part of the as built documentation.

Building owners that maintain punch list and commissioning documents may find the trouble spots for future performance were identified during the initial warranty and acceptance.

Statistical information generated by the database is the most accurate predictor of Paving systems ROI and life cycle costs when information is collected accurately.  Building statistically significant data allow building managers opportunities to spot underperforming systems relative to other Paving type groups.
