The Asphalt Jungle is one of the premier asphalt and hardscape contractors providing services for hotels and resorts throughout Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.
We provide asphalt, paving and hardscape services for:
The architecture and landscaping of a hotel or resort should be the most arresting visual for guests who are arriving at the property for the first time, but hardscape matters. If the pavement in the driveway, parking lots or parking garages is compromised – with cracks and potholes, or asphalt faded by time and with poor markings – it can compromise the overall effect that was intended by the building and landscape architects.
Additionally, recent trends toward making parking areas more sustainable and aesthetically pleasing have placed greater demands on property owners and managers. Fortunately, asphalt contractors are answering the call from architects and engineers to provide better and more versatile pavement treatments.
Smooth pavement – This is a must. Aging pavement with cracks, potholes and fading are more than a bad aesthetic for guests. Trip and fall accidents due to uneven surfaces are common and costly (think liability issues; inquire with your insurer if they assess your facilities to be a higher risk due to bad pavement and therefore they might charge higher premiums). Asphalt repair and sealcoating will reduce liability and improve the look of the property.
Better wayfinding – Signage on walls as well as on elevators, stairwells – as well as asphalt striping on the pavement itself – can help visitors find their cars more easily (remember, guests are usually unfamiliar with the garage and the rental car they are driving). On pavement, sealcoat messages in appropriate bright colors can guide motorists and pedestrians alike.
Handicap and employee accommodations – Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for handicap parking spaces nearest points of egress and regress should be up-to-date with current regulations (which changed in 2010). Further, designated bicycle locking facilities for employees and guests are largely perceived as a win-win amenity.
Cooler, greener roofs – Barren garage rooftops as seen from hotel rooms are increasingly replaced with green roofs (plantings, such as trees that shade top-level parking, or an entirely vegetated surface) or solar shading (canopies of photovoltaic arrays that do double duty as energy collectors and shade for vehicles). This creates an overall pleasing aesthetic to guests. Further, guests with electrical vehicles might get a clean energy charge for their cars from rooftop solar. Smartly-laid pavement (including recycled asphalt) is still part of these environments.
These multiple purposes and demands of parking providers underscore the point: Parking and drive -ups have gone way beyond functionality. Structure and pavement fit into the broader experience of being in a great place. Parking and driving surfaces are not an afterthought anymore.
