REEVES CONSTRUCTION CORP. WINS NATIONAL AWARD FOR QUALITY IN ASPHALT PAVING
Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Reeves Construction Corp. of Macon, Georgia, won a 2017 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award today at a ceremony during the association’s 63rd Annual Meeting in San Diego.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public. All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment,” said 2017 NAPA Chairman Dan Gallagher. “Earning the Quality in Construction Award demonstrates that Reeves Construction has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
Reeves Construction Corp. won the award for its work on SR 67 north of Holton Road to north of Davis Road in Bulloch County. The company used green paving techniques on this project, which included milling 1 ¼ inches of pavement off the road and then replacing it with an asphalt inlay. Incorporating reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) in the mixes and using warm-mix asphalt technology helped save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and conserve natural resources. The completed road has a 54 percent improved ride quality.
The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) is the only trade association that exclusively represents the interests of the asphalt producer/contractor on the national level with Congress, government agencies, and other national trade and business organizations. NAPA supports an active research program designed to improve the quality of asphalt pavements and paving techniques used in the construction of roads, streets, highways, parking lots, airports, and environmental and recreational facilities. The association provides technical, educational, and marketing materials and information to its members; supplies product information to users and specifiers of paving materials; and conducts training courses. The association, which counts more than 1,100 companies as members, was founded in 1955.
