Bridgeview, Ill. -- Rose Paving Co. has completed a major parking lot enhancement program at 7-Eleven locations in the northeastern United States. The project, which involved 970,463 sq. ft. of space, spanned the course of five weeks. Work ranged from two-inch mill and overlay to full parking lot reconstruction at more than 75 7-Eleven stores in Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia -- all while stores remained open.
Rose Paving was contracted by Powerhouse Retail Services, which managed these renovations for the world’s largest convenience retailer. Remodels for the more than 1,000 7-Eleven stores on the East Coast included, in some cases, upgrades to both building interiors and exteriors. Rose Paving performed all parking lot repairs in two phases to keep stores fully operating while the work was done. Parking lot sizes varied from 5,000 sq. ft. to 25,000 sq. ft.
“Our national purchasing power was instrumental in making this overhaul a success,” said David Rivers, Rose Paving director of national operations. “7-Eleven saw the value in completing paving improvements to multiple properties at once, rather than as individual projects occurring separately over time, which helped to save money on materials and resources.”
