Concrete is highly versatile and can be used in a multitude of applications. The following are jut a few examples of how concrete can be used in a commercial setting:
- Parking lots

…and much more
Concrete is a great way to reduce the environmental footprint that your commercial business leaves behind. With concrete, you get all of the strength and durability without the constant maintenance requirements. Contrary to asphalt, another popular choice in Calgary, concrete has a much longer life expectancy and service time while also boasting minimal upkeep requirements.
Concrete, an Affordable Safe and Stylish Solution
Historically, concrete was deemed to be a more expensive option, but this is primarily due to the fact that concrete was not being designed for the right purposes. The modern American Concrete institute has issued a guide which takes into consideration different important factors such as soil quality, uses, light exposure and traffic to help deem the required thickness for specific concrete applications. If you consider how much time and money you will save on the upkeep of your concrete, you can understand how this ends up being the more attractive solution for your commercial concrete needs.
Another great benefit to concrete is that when used for parking lot applications, it is a much safer than asphalt at night due to its deflectability of light. This not only creates a safer environment, reducing the risk of liability on behalf of your business, but it also creates an opportunity to save money on nighttime lighting costs. It can be safe and effective to reduce the wattage of the overhead parking lot lights that illuminate the space at night.
Concrete is a modern and stylish solution that can be incorporated indoors as well. Many of our Calgary commercial clients in the restaurant, hospitality and tech industries have adopted this stylish solution in their spaces. With the help of reinforcing materials, concrete can be molded into unique furniture designs and functional uses. Conversely, concrete is a great solution for floors and spaces which receive a lot of wear and tear due to a high volume of foot traffic.
