At Home is a self-described home décor superstore with more than 135 stores spread across 33 states. The average At Home store covers 120,000 square feet and offers more than 50,000 unique items in a range of categories, including seasonal décor, rugs, wall décor, furniture, and housewares. Given the size of the stores and the massive inventory, it is not surprising that the company found that most shoppers spend around two hours in the store per visit. This has led the company to be extremely vigilant about the overall customer experience, including the store’s aesthetics, safety, convenience, and cleanliness. When the aging parking lot serving the At Home in New Braunfels needed a major facelift, the company contacted Alpha Paving.

What Did the At Home Paving Project Involve?
The store is in Walnut Square, a busy shopping center in the 600 block of South Walnut that has direct visibility to those driving on Interstate 35. The first phase of the shopping center’s construction began in 1985. Although the parking lot maintenance has been relatively good, the asphalt showed signs of age and distress. Fortunately, however, the quality of the maintenance throughout the pavement’s life meant that the foundation was stable enough that a complete reconstruction was not necessary.
Since the store is in a shopping center, the team at Alpha Paving had to devise a plan to control traffic without affecting other tenants. Our program also needed to minimize the inconvenience to the store’s customers and employees. As we are very aware of the link between effective communication and high-quality, efficient results, we worked closely with the customer to plan and execute the project.
We divided the paving project into two phases. We milled more than 87,550 square feet of asphalt pavement and replaced it to a depth of 1.5 inches. We then applied new pavement markings, including markings for the fire lane and striping, per the existing layout.
We completed the work in two days during January 2019. As usual, we provided At Home with high-quality work that remained within budget and adhered to the customer’s schedule.
