Not all racetracks are built for cars going 200 mph.
KinderCare centers are super fun to work with. Kansas Asphalt repairs their parking lots and sidewalks, but we also have projects that are much more exciting. We have repaired multiple tricycle “racetracks” that were uneven and dangerous. We also have worked to repair basketball, four square and hopscotch courts for KinderCare centers.
Inevitably, the children love to watch our crews work when we are on the job at a KinderCare. The process of their play areas being repaired and upgraded draws children to the classroom windows to watch. One crew on a recent project even stopped their work for awhile to answer the children's questions. Who knows — some of these children may become the next generation of leaders in our industry!
As for the work itself, Kansas Asphalt keeps safety as the number one priority on every job. But if safety considerations could be even more elevated on a project, it is when we work on a KinderCare project. We repair a great number of trip hazards on these playgrounds.
The project pictured here is from a KinderCare location in Palatine, Ill. The project included power washing and repainting an older concrete slab that included a play area in the center of a tricycle racetrack. Our team painted the lines for hopscotch, foursquare and the track over two weekends.
After a concrete lot's total failure, K.A.I. conducted a full assessment and developed a program to replace the surface and sub-grade over two years. The result was a new lot for this busy center, without interruption to business.
"Kansas Asphalt, Inc. has been one of the best companies that I have used in the Southeast U.S. for remediating lot surfaces – asphalt, concrete and limestone."

K.A.I. Total Pavement Management led the way for the construction management of the asphalt and concrete spaces on this busy lot and the business stayed open during the remodel of the lot. K.A.I. worked for both the client and the third-party engineering firm in coordinating the schedule, activites, and great execution.
"This was a complex project, but it was easy working with K.A.I.”

K.A.I. installed an asphalt plant on site, and organized a program to pave the 17-acre log deck over three years.
“K.A.I. has been great to work with, consistently adhering to specs and timeframes as well as navigating any problems that we encounter on our projects.”

A hospital customer was experiencing continual water intrusion at one of their city campus locations in an area enjoyed by staff and visitors alike. K.A.I. was able to identify and resolve the problem.
"I know when I work with K.A.I. the project will go smoothly."
