Pavements

Pavements are engineered structures essential to transportation, commerce and trade, and everyday life. In order for them to perform as expected, pitt&sherry would ensure implementation of different methodologies and practices in order for pavement to be designed, constructed, maintained, and managed properly.

Our single most valuable asset is arguably the pavement structure within our infrastructure network. We understand that pavements are subjected to static and dynamic loads as well as exposure to the elements, therefore only sound engineering judgment, from experienced and qualified personnel can provide cost efficient and appropriate solutions to our pavement challenges.

pitt&sherry demonstrates an innovative, sustainable approach through relationships with research centers of excellence across the globe. pitt&sherry’s teams undertake investigation, analysis, design and documentation services for the construction, rehabilitation and strengthening of pavements.

pitt&sherry specialist pavement engineers understands the variables that pavement performance is affected by materials, environment, loading and construction as well as structural design – and it is the variability in these attributes that introduces risk. To manage and quantify these risks, pitt&sherry has developed different approaches to pavement design, embracing fundamental materials analysis, climatic conditions, actual loading regimes and latest developments in pavement design philosophy.

Life-cycle cost analysis is one of the tools that pitt&sherry is adopting in which pavement structures are evaluated and assessed to be presented to our pavement asset owners. The life-cycle cost of a road includes the money spent on initial construction of a road, maintenance over its lifetime, and the costs to users for their delays during maintenance and reconstruction.

pitt&sherry is also engaging in developing more durable road designs solution and implementation of new types of pavement in Australia include but not limited to:

High Modulus Asphalt (EME2) as a substituting of conventional dense graded materials on heavily trafficked high priority highways and motorways aiming to enhanced fatigue and deformation resistance and increased constructability.

  • Thin Overlays (Thinlays) to pavement preservation and their ability to provide improved ride quality, reduce pavement distresses, maintain surface geometrics, reduce noise levels, reduce life-cycle costs, and provide long-lasting service
  • Crumb Rubber Sprayed Seal Binder and its significant environmental advantage using recycled tyres to modify bitumen.
  • pitt&sherry’s services cover pavements for local roads, major freeways, highways, airport runways, mine access, heavy industrial and haul roads.
  • Our consultancy services covers:
  • New pavement design and design verification
  • Rehabilitation designs include innovative maintenance and rehabilitation strategies
  • Material investigations and utilisation
  • Pavement failure investigation and subgrade assessment
