You’ve likely heard about how roads, homes, and buildings are being built to be smarter and greener.
Yes, we’re blessed with some of the best construction professionals in the business. But we at Park Enterprise Construction Co., Inc. wouldn’t be where we are today - after nearly 30 years in the business - without a little help from our friends.

When a building comes down or a concrete surface is torn up, what happens with the remnants? Well, one of two things:
- It can sit and take up space in a landfill, or
- It can be reused
Yeah, we like the second option, too.
Wait! Don’t dump that! There’s still life in that crushed up, old driving surface.
The day finally came for you to rip up your asphalt or concrete parking lot and start anew. While you’ll fondly remember your old lot and all the great times you had together, the friendship isn’t actually over. The material itself can be crushed, recycled, and given fresh life.
Whether you’re trying to lay a strong base or to stop erosion, construction aggregate is an essential tool.
Decay often begins deep down where you can’t see it. The right construction aggregate grade will help prevent erosion and provide a stronger base for your entire project.
