9 Reasons South Florida Utility Companies Should Partner With Us

underground utilities

Protecting the infrastructure of a job site or roadway is extremely important. In South Florida, this can affect things like budget, profitability, reputation, safety, and the overall build quality of a community. However, when it comes to certain commercial projects, there are benefits associated with outsourcing asphalt services for utility companies. Let’s look at nine of our top reasons why working with Southern Asphalt Engineering is important. 

 1. Experience working with utility companies in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties 

It’s important to work with an experienced asphalt engineering company with the background and knowledge of working with various utility infrastructure contractors in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. These ongoing relationships allow for essential communication throughout a project, better planning, and better results. A newly established engineering company may not have the experience to provide top-notch service. They may lack details and information that they haven’t learned yet due to a lack of communication with these utility companies. It will speed up the job and ensure that the project work is done correctly and to code. 

 2. Understands Florida Utility Regulations 

There must be a clear understanding of the different utility regulations that exist in Florida. This will prevent any kind of fines or problems from creeping up when the job is done. Understanding these regulations is also important because these guidelines have been created for a reason. They generally are needed to keep an area safe, protected, and secure. Commercial underground contractors must understand what has been changed over the years, what codes and regulations are grandfathered in, etc. 

 3. Showcase Utility specialties 

Southern Asphalt Engineering has many utility specialties that can be a game changer for a specific project that involves South Florida utility companies. These services can be combined when needed or used individually as part of a larger project. 

 Just some of the services that are provided include:

  • Asphalt milling and resurfacing
  • Asphalt overlay
  • Asphalt Patching
  • Asphalt Paving
  • Concrete Curbing 
  • Concrete Gutters
  • Sidewalks and walkways
  • Parking Lot Construction
  • Asphalt Striping
  • Sealcoating
  • Parking Lot and Roadway Accessories
  • Parking lot and Roadway Signage 

 4. Turn-key solutions for asphalt and concrete services

Property owners, businesses, municipalities, and HOA board members don’t want to sign on for lengthy projects that seem to never get completed. A timely turn-key solution addresses what needs to be done regarding asphalt services for utility companies and makes sure a specific timeline is followed. This allows other contractors and professionals to stay on track with their portion of the project.

 5. New construction 

New construction can occur with an efficient timeline when South Florida utility companies pair with a utility infrastructure contractor in the asphalt engineering field. From the planning phase to getting the work done and everything in between, there is a lot to take on with a new construction process. It’s imperative that utility companies work with experienced engineers that are knowledgeable regarding permitting, ways to protect infrastructure, and have access to the proper equipment and resources. A newly established contracting company can lead to many mistakes, or things can be disregarded that could lead to catastrophic problems later on. 

 6. Drainage systems

Drainage systems are an important part of new construction, repairs, etc. Without this aspect of a project, an area can experience substantial damage from pooling water, water flow, water runoff, and more. A project that would have otherwise lasted decades could require replacement or major repairs in just a couple of years. Southern Asphalt Engineering can offer asphalt and concrete services for utility companies and develop extensive drainage systems that will address any potential water issues that could present themselves in the future. 

 7. Asphalt, curb & sidewalk repairs 

Repairs are a great way to keep a project budget to a minimum. When you pair together a South Florida utility company with an asphalt engineering professional, you can skip complete replacements in many cases. From resurfacing an area to patching up holes or cracks, maintenance and repairs can help protect an area for many years. For example, rebuilding or repairing concrete sidewalks is essential for communities and ensures the safety and future liabilities.  

 8. Medium-Sized Asphalt Contractor 

Utility companies should consider partnering with a medium-sized asphalt engineering firm. A smaller asphalt firm will only provide the limited benefits associated with a mom-and-pop company. However, there may be the desire for a larger company if there is the potential for more advanced qualifications and state-wide projects. A medium-sized contractor is the best option for most asphalt projects. You’ll typically find that the company owner is present throughout a project to ensure that everything is running smoothly. This also boosts communication throughout the project. There’s also no need for sub-contracting other professionals into the job when you’re working with a medium-sized asphalt contractor. They also have access to the latest and greatest resources. A company like Southern Asphalt Engineering has trained contractors with multiple skill sets and access to all the resources and equipment needed to take on any job in South Florida.

 9. Centrally located in Miami – Easy access to service South Florida 

Partnering with asphalt contractors outside of South Florida will be difficult in several ways. First, you will find that communication is a challenge. They will have other jobs in different areas of the state, which means they aren’t 100 percent dedicated to your job. A local company allows easy access to all your South Florida service needs without having to deal with the headache of multiple commercial contractors. The best benefit of working with a local, centrally located contractor is that they’re more timely and cost-efficient.
