Paving Company Wins Big at Super Bowl LII Stadium

Knowledge is Power
To determine how to tie in asphalt
to concrete features already in
place at the stadium, Shawn Bloch,
GPS Survey Manager for Park
Construction, shot the elevation of
existing concrete with a transit. He
found that four elevation marks on
concrete walls were within about an
inch, plus or minus, of 104 feet all
the way around the bowl. This wasn't
close enough for the tight tolerances
required for asphalt paving. The
actual elevation had to be adjusted
at the four points. "When we reset to
the actual coordinates, that brought
us within our tolerance for our
control," Bloch said.
Creating a 3D model of the site to
download into the paver took Bloch
approximately one hour. "For this
project, we had three elevations.
We had one elevation for the top
lift of asphalt, one for the top of the
base course, and one for the gravel
surface. It was pretty quick and
simple," Bloch said.
Before asphalt paving could
begin, approximately 75 tons
of aggregate had to be removed
from the bowl. Hard, packed
aggregate, one-half to three-quarter
inches in diameter, was ripped
and then graded to elevation.
Park Construction had one week
to complete grading. A motor
grader outfitted with 3D grading,
which eliminated the need for
shooting grades and grading stakes,
completed the work in three-and-ahalf days.
The 3D paving job was a first
for Park Construction, and some
techniques needed tweaking. Steve
Devlaeminck, a screed operator
since the 1990s, had been taught
to keep the tow point centered at
zero. "We started out paving with
tow points in the center at zero, and
we noticed our mat was going up
and down," Devlaeminck said. "We
made adjustments to correct that."
Steve Goutermont, a Caterpillar
Paving consultant, mentioned that

The use of 3D paving helped the Park Construction crew quickly place a high quality surface.

performance is improved for this
paver and screed combination when
the tow-point is positioned at zeroplus-paving-thickness and the angle
of attack is at one-quarter inch.
"Once we changed the tow points
and maintained our paver speed,
we could see the results instantly.
Everything settled down and we
started getting a nice-looking mat,"
said Devlaeminck.

Wayne Dilley, paver operator, said
his top priorities were keeping the
paver as straight as possible, stopping
exactly when elevations were
checked, and keeping a consistent
head of material. "I knew my head
of material was good, but we had
to stop and check our elevations.
Instead of stopping slowly and
checking, we stopped right away.
