Tips for Managing Exterior Hard Surfaces

Have a Plan

Even if you don’t already have a plan, now is the time to plan on building one. Replacement is not maintenance. Developing a plan to maintain asphalt, concrete and drainage systems is essential to helping them reach their maximum lifecycle. Too often reactive measures are costly and inconvenient.

Assess Conditions Regularly

Just as the seasons change, so do the conditions of our hard surfaces. Freeze and thaw cycles can have major effects on asphalt and concrete specifically. Adding designated assessment dates throughout the year can help you get ahead of significant damage and make budgeting accurately more obtainable.

Prioritize and Be Realistic

Prioritizing is extremely important as projects will never fail to present themselves. Defining what the goals for the property are before assigning dollars is the best way to make sure you’re not losing sight of the big picture. Categorizing in terms of safety, functionality, and aesthetics can help to narrow in on what is an immediate line item verses something that may fit best in next years’ budget.

Here are Four Great Tips for Maintaining Asphalt Surfaces.


Bridging the Gap on Infrastructure

According to the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, the United States scores a D+. The report is created by the ASCE Committee on America’s Infrastructure. An expertly selected criteria is used to put together the report card based on capacity, condition, funding, future need, operation and maintenance, public safety, resilience and innovation. The grades are measured much like your high school report card with A denoting “exceptional”, B denoting “good”, C denoting “mediocre”, D denoting “poor” and obviously F concluding “failure”. Many of the United States’ infrastructure categories have steadily hovered at less than favorable scores for many years. The reasons for concern are obvious, but poor infrastructure doesn’t only impact daily life, safety, legislation, funding and dedication of resources. The effects can be far reaching. For example, commercial real estate is directly impacted by poor infrastructure.

Our roads, railways, waterways, public transit, wastewater, energy, bridges, levees, ports, public parks, drinking water, schools and dams are all crucial pieces of our infrastructure.

These are all impact factors for commercial real estate. Connectors between where people live to where they shop, go to work and seek leisure or entertainment can all be driven by the means or quality of means by which they must travel there. It may also be affected by the quality of health impact factors such as drinking water, waste management and energy. The economy is directly tied to our infrastructure and as a result all business owners, property owners and investors should be deeply concerned by the degrading quality represented in this report card. Buildings in areas impacted by terrible connectivity are sure to pay a price.

Retailers should be particularly concerned.

As large retailers and developers invest time and money in forward thinking designs for retail centers, crumbling infrastructure threatens to make access difficult and reduce the geography in which development can remain profitable. As trends lend themselves to younger Americans populating urban centers and downtown’s instead of the suburbs, the quality of the infrastructure around these areas becomes increasingly more important. Access at a granular level, now more than ever, is on the mind of developers and investors.

The movement of goods and services rely on infrastructure. Tenants will avoid leasing in buildings or areas that are difficult to access.

Just as important as the location and market is the ability to supply it. Big retailers are just as concerned about how they will deliver goods to their locations as they are about how potential customers will access them. Why? Managing costs is essential, and without options, it becomes less than attractive to leverage the need to consistently supply on poor accessibility.

What can be done about it?

It can be argued that although dismal, our infrastructure issues can be solved. With better leadership, investment and the ability to properly assess the needs of the future, we can put ourselves back on the right track.
