ACPA and UDOT Present Staker Parson with Multiple Excellence in Paving Awards
January 22, 2010
OGDEN, Utah–The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) and Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) presented Staker Parson Companies with four Excellence in Paving awards for outstanding concrete paving projects completed in 2009. The awards ceremony was held at the Ninth Annual Concrete Pavement Workshop at Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City on January 20. The project owner, design engineer and ready-mix supplier were recognized at the conference for the winning projects.
Jack B. Parson Companies, the concrete division of Staker Parson Companies, received three awards for the concrete they supplied for the following projects: Street Replacement/Repairs, Salt Lake City; Utah State Government Multi-Agency Building, Salt Lake City; and Lost Creek Road, Morgan County. Perhaps the most unique project was Lost Creek Road because it is one of the first concrete-paved county roads in Utah.
Staker Parson was nominated by UDOT to receive an award for its work as the general contractor for the US-89; 200 North Kaysville to Sunset Drive Truck Lane Concrete Pavement Overlay. The project is the first concrete overlay completed by Staker Parson. The company rotomilled and removed eight inches of the original asphalt surface which was replaced with 10 inches of Portland concrete pavement (8,000 cubic yards of concrete supplied by Jack B. Parson Companies). UDOT chose to overlay the southbound truck-lane with concrete in hopes that the surface will be more durable.
We are honored to be recognized for our efforts on these projects, said Scott Parson, president and CEO of Staker Parson. We strive to be The Preferred Source by building quality, service and innovation into every project with which we are involved as a materials supplier or contractor. The ACPA awards are designed not only to honor quality concrete pavements, but to encourage exceptional workmanship and provide a resource for contractors to share information and resources. Winning projects are determined by an independent panel of judges.
