Jack B. Parson Companies Receives Seven ACI Awards for Excellence in Concrete

July 31, 2014


Jack B. Parson Companies was awarded with seven Excellence in Concrete awards from the American Concrete Institute (ACI) for their contributions to several large projects in Utah. Jack B. Parson Companies worked together with several contractors to provide concrete and expertise for each project. The Excellence in Concrete Award recognizes the innovative and aesthetic uses of concrete by owners, architects, engineers, contractors, and ready mix producers.

Each project required several yards of concrete to be placed under tight deadlines and strict guidelines. The Blender Bottle building in Lehi, Utah is 100,000 square foot facility with approximately 20,000 square feet of office space and 80,000 square feet of warehouse. The use of tilt-up concrete walls and reinforced concrete provided less wasted and durability capable of withstanding seismic forces. Concrete was the material of choice in this project because of its durable nature.

Two other projects included replacing concrete at the Gateway Shopping Center in Salt Lake City and rehabilitating I-215, SR-201 to North Temple. Walking areas at the Gateway were replaced with stamped and colored concrete for an aesthetically pleasing look that will last. I-215 received 2,980 square yards of PCCP removal and replacement in just four weekends.

The remaining five awards were received by Jack B. Parson Companies for the following projects: Merit Medical Production Building, Tooele Applied Technology College, University of Utah Ambulatory Care Center Parking Structure, University of Utah L.S. Skaggs Pharmacy Research Institute, and the Wheeler Office Renovation. Each project was unique in design and product usage. Under tight timelines and strict requirements, Jack B. Parson Companies was able to provide quality product and innovative ideas to provide the best solution possible.

“I want to give a special thanks to our contractors who have given us the opportunity to be their partners. When talented and dedicated people come together, great and amazing projects are the result. Thanks for allowing Jack B. Parson Companies to be their Preferred Source for their concrete needs.” Bob Rowberry, Jack B. Parson Companies President.
