The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced the winners of its 2013 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The winning companies received their awards on Feb. 5, at a ceremony during the association’s 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla.
For 2013, 198 projects completed by 81 companies were honored with a Quality in Construction Award. One hundred of the projects were singled out for their use of sustainable construction practices, such as incorporating reclaimed and recycled materials and using warm-mix asphalt.
“As an industry, asphalt pavement producers have devoted a great deal of time and effort to determining the best practices necessary to construct long-lasting, high-quality asphalt pavements that offer the durable performance pavement owners and the public value. The Quality in Construction Awards compare nominated pavements against best practices and standards, and honor those that exemplify excellence in construction standards,” said John J. Keating, 2013 chairman of the NAPA board of directors.
