Stamped Asphalt at Naval Station Norfolk, Norfolk VA

Alternative Paving Concepts recently completed a decorative stamped asphalt project at the World’s largest naval base: Naval Station Norfolk, Norfolk VA. Naval Station Norfolk, also known as Norfolk Naval Base, is a base of the United States Navy. It occupies about four miles of waterfront space and seven miles of pier and wharf space of the Hampton Roads peninsula. It is the world’s largest naval station and supports about 75 ships and 134 aircrafts alongside 14 piers, 11 aircraft aircraft hangers, and houses the largest concentration of U.S. Navy forces.
This project consisted of decorative stamped asphalt around a building on base. Naval Station Norfolk already utilizes  stamped asphalt throughout the station for walkways, sidewalks, and also intersections and crosswalks. This new addition was installed to match the existing pattern and color seen throughout the base.
Pattern: Ashlar Slate

Color: Khaki
