Civil construction services: 5 benefits of a concrete road

25 Jun 2021

Civil construction is one of the most difficult service areas for many  of our  clients to wrap their heads around. Though professional landscaping takes years of training and experience, most business owners have a fair idea of what they want. When it comes to civil construction services, a more technical area, business owners struggle a bit more with determining what’s effective for their industry and the property’s physical landscape. Many commercial properties hire our team to construct concrete roads, however, figuring out whether it is aesthetically and functionally right for a business can be challenging.

The issue surrounding concrete roads and other civil construction services are that business owners often don’t understand the value and functionality that comes with it. Without seeking professional advice, it may lead them to select material for a road that is either cheap but extremely low quality or unsuitable for the nature of their business. This is why we believe that knowledge about services and products is power.

At Civil and Scape, we offer concrete works in the form of both pavements and roads. We highly recommend concrete roads for a number of our commercial clients, especially those who are interested in a durable option for their business. To educate our clients and prospective customers and to help them make informed decisions for their businesses, we’ve outlined the benefits of a concrete road for commercial properties.

4 reasons why our civil construction contractors recommend concrete roads for businesses in Sydney


For businesses that are extremely concerned about the aesthetic of their road, a concrete road is the best option. It’s clear to see that a road, regardless of the material, is exposed to all of the elements. From extreme pressure from cars and foot traffic, to high temperatures and excess moisture, a road is subject to a lot. This is why it is important that you acquire the most durable option – a concrete road.

A concrete road is prone to less wear and tear than many other road materials and will not crack, lose its texture or form a pothole easily. For construction businesses, concrete roads are especially effective because they can bear the weight of a loaded truck and are not affected by oil leaks.


With extreme durability comes low maintenance and cost-effectiveness. As concrete roads perform well under intense pressure and have a slow rate of wear and tear in the face of natural elements, they require very little to no maintenance.

Little to no maintenance means that throughout the decades that you have a concrete road, you will not have to spend money on keeping it in tip-top shape. This makes a concrete road a smart investment for any business.

Stays cooler

In Sydney, it’s no secret that during the summer, the temperatures can get extremely hot. While other materials, like asphalt, absorb and trap heat due to its darkness, concrete operates much differently.

Concrete absorbs heat from direct sunlight, stores the heat and releases it slowly so that it is not a blast of heat all at once. The light colour of concrete also helps to reflect the sunlight which reduces the warming of the air; this also helps to decrease the urban heat island effect.

Professional aesthetic

Lastly, the appearance of a concrete road is incredibly important to businesses that value their brand image. The smooth, relatively versatile aesthetic is perfect for most businesses that value a simple but effective design.

Due to the durability of the concrete road, its appearance will not be tarnished easily by wear and tear. This leaves businesses with a structurally and aesthetically sound road that should last decades.
