WHAT IS THE TYPICAL COST FOR PARKING LOT CONSTRUCTION?
Parking lot construction cost can vary widely based on a number of variables, including the site’s soils, slope and structure, the type of surface which is required, stormwater drainage requirements, necessary site preparation, requirements for detention/retention of stormwater and the land utilization costs. In addition to these site-specific variables, the costs of labor and materials should also be taken into account. But what about other considerations such as future maintenance and repairs?
TRUEGRID provides an excellent, flexible option to your parking lot design. Typically running 1/3 to 1/2 lower than comparable concrete construction and equal to or lower than asphalt construction, TRUEGRID has additional benefits making it more cost effective than either traditional paving technique. With virtually no maintenance over its estimated 25-60 year life cycle, our system has lower future costs while bearing up better than asphalt in hot weather. Because the retention/detention of storm water happens in the permeable pavement itself, there is often no need for additional land purchases or expensive drainage features required of traditional paving techniques. Furthermore, because TRUEGRID is a cooler paving solution, it helps prevent heat island effects, lowering your building’s cooling costs in the summer.

HOW CAN ONE BRING THE COST OF PARKING LOT CONSTRUCTION DOWN?
When you’re considering a new parking lot construction cost can be a major concern! There are several large expenses, both immediate and in the future, that can be minimized by using the TRUEGRID paver system. Because land can be completely utilized instead of reserving up to 30% of your land space for detention/retention ponds, the TRUEGRID permeable paver system uses the parking lot itself as the retention/detention area as the grid and sub-base serve this purpose. For this reason, another primary expense for drainage elements and the retention/detention ponds themselves is eliminated. Labor costs are much lower with installing a TRUEGRID pavement system as well, as 1,000 square feet can be laid out in a single man hour.

WHAT ARE SOME ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING AT THE CONSTRUCTION COST OF A PARKING LOT?
It’s easy to consider parking lot construction cost alone when considering a parking lot. But what about in the future? By preventing heat island effects, you’ll have lower cooling bills in the summer. With no maintenance required, there are no costs for patching, repaving or grading gravel lots. As you can see, TRUEGRID provides excellent parking solutions. For more information on how TRUEGRID’s design helps save you money and effort, click on our Features tab above
