Are you currently thinking of having a carpark constructed for your business? When you have this thought in mind, you should always consider planning a structure that is not only durable enough to sustain your clients’ parking requirements.

Therefore, when planning for a carpark construction, you and your contractor must have the carpark safety inspection checklist. This should include the following.

When construction comes to an end, make sure that the entrance and exit gates are in safe working condition.
For installing lights

These lights should be part of your checklist. The number of lights to install will depend upon how large the space is. Additionally, you should choose for the safest lights to install for the needs of your clients.
For signage and lot markings
Another safety aspect to include in your carpark construction checklist is the signage that should be part of the carpark. Make sure that your contractor will include the need to have a readable signage that will help direct traffic of vehicles that will come in and out of the carpark in the near future. These signage and lot markings should be visible and readable to drivers. Make sure that each important spot in the carpark bears lot markings that will indicate the best areas where pedestrians can cross.
When construction a carpark, you have to make sure that your contractor will assure that there are no potholes or cracks in the parking lot. If these cracks are evident especially after carpark construction, you have to ensure that the contractor does something about it even before you put the structure into operations.
