The most important element to consider in parking lot lighting is providing adequate lighting so that drivers and pedestrians can clearly see pavement markings, walkways, parking bumpers, or signs. LED bulbs have become the industry standard for parking lots because they save energy, emit almost no heat, last several years, require little maintenance, and provide plenty of directional and scattered lighting.

In 2016, BR submitted an asphalt paving bid for the Minnesota Vikings TCO Performance Center via an electronic request for proposal to Kraus-Anderson, the project’s general contractor. Once awarded the project, BR didn’t actually start installing asphalt until mid-year, 2017, nearly a year from the original bid date. Other subcontractors were on the docket first, to complete portions of the project prior to BR installing any asphalt.
