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 in Statesboro. The project included 1 ½ inches of variable width milling and inlay. The company incorporated green paving techniques, using warm-mix asphalt and taking millings back to the plant and processing them so they could be reused in the surfacing mixes for the project. Both processes reduced the environmental impact of the project by conserving virgin materials and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Despite challenges such as paving in urban areas, Reeves Construction Corp. produced a quality asphalt pavement with 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.
