Facilitation … Collaboration
The Preferred Member Partners is a group of elite commercial contractors founded in 2010 by Pavement Exchange Group, as a way to provide self-performing, best practice paving contractors to commercial clients. The PMPs are a group of elite paving contractors who are strategically involved in major metro areas that we work with at a very granular level for asphalt and concrete installation. They are very responsive to our clients and in turn, we assist them with sales and marketing efforts. The PMPs are “preferred,” not “exclusive”. They have to earn and maintain that status, through constantly vetting their processes and competitiveness. On an annual basis, we hold a conference to meet with our PMP’s and share emerging technologies, industry trends, processes, and best practices that will ensure we remain a step ahead.[/bs_col]
Olive Garden #1261
Project Location: Columbia, Maryland
PMP Pavement Exchange Group
We had to totally reconstruct the drive lanes prior to the overlay pave. This meant saw cutting to a 12″ depth and establishing a firm and unyielding base. Decisions were made on site to undercut soft areas and full-depth asphalt was used throughout to bridge the bad area (pity the person that ever has to patch this lot as dig out will be difficult). This could have been a huge inconvenience to the store but it was not as O’Leary threw extra manpower and equipment at this project in order to conclude it quickly. As a matter of fact, during the final paving phase, they utilized two (2) paving crews simultaneously.
What a Great Effort!!! Thanks to John Pickell, Kevin O’Leary and the entire staff of O’Leary Asphalt this was a Project Well Done.

Arrowhead Mall 2012 Parking Lot Revitalization
Project Location: Glendale Arizona
PMP Ace Asphalt
The 2012 revitalization project of Arrowhead Town Center Mall in Glendale, Arizona incorporated a vast array of civil construction methods which were necessary to address the varied conditions that existed in the targeted 17 acres aged asphalt. The project involved rubberized crack filling, asphalt milling, asphalt pulverization, asphalt demolition, trucking of materials both into and off of the site, soil stabilization, grading, asphalt paving, utility adjustments, soil testing, striping, signage and ADA access modification.
While performing the work the mall needed to remain open every day of the week for customers, employees and vendor deliveries. To spice thing up a little, natural gas, water, and electrical utility lines had been previously placed in drive areas where the asphalt now needed to be removed and replaced and all of the work needed to be accomplished in half the time originally planned.
To the mall manager’s delight, the project was completed on time and on budget while maintaining mall access and safety. The successful revitalization resulted in over 700,000 square feet of freshly laid asphalt, ready in time for eager holiday shoppers.
