Pavement resurfacing will eventually become a necessity for any business with its own parking lot. By eliminating potholes and cracks, you do more than improve your curb appeal. You also reduce tripping hazards for pedestrians and create a smoother driving experience for your customers and employees. Of course, you'll need to make temporary arrangements while these parking spaces are unavailable. Here are some tips to keep your business running during this time.
How Can Business Owners Deal With Pavement Resurfacing Work?
1. Complete Pavement Resurfacing in Phases
Rather than shutting down the entire parking lot, most businesses can maintain operations by having the paving work done in phases. For example, you could close off the left half of the lot for repaving while keeping the right side open.
After the left side can be used again, the right half can be repaved. While parking will be limited, this will keep you from needing to close off the lot entirely.
2. Schedule Work Outside Normal Business Hours
The paving contractor will need to use equipment that can take up considerable space. Drivers and pedestrians will need to exercise caution to account for these tools and the crew. Scheduling the pavement resurfacing outside your normal business hours can eliminate these risks and allow the professionals to complete their work faster.
3. Encourage Employees to Work From Home
If you're having an employee parking lot resurfaced, it may be helpful to have some employees work from home during the project. With modern technology, many businesses are better equipped for work-from-home setups than in the past, which may make this a relatively easy transition. Be sure to communicate the need for these temporary arrangements well in advance to ensure your employees are prepared.
