Staker Parson Companies Awarded Lab of the Year

March 30, 2011

Ogden, UTAH–The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) recently recognized Staker Parson Companies’ Beck Street hot mix asphalt lab as the 2010 Contractor Lab of the Year at the annual Utah asphalt convention. 2010 marks the third consecutive year that a Staker Parson Lab has won the award. Staker Parson’s Ogden asphalt lab was awarded second place, giving Staker Parson Companies first and second place.

UDOT recognizes hot mix asphalt labs that excel in performance of three categories: proficiency samples, quality manual and independent assurance.

Proficiency samples consist of aggregate, hot mix asphalt and soil tests. Tests are performed for each material category, then results are submitted to be compared with other accredited labs across the country. The quality manual houses records of equipment calibration and technician training in order to maintain AMRL Accreditation. Independent assurance is how well the technicians test results compare with other technicians from other companies.

Special thanks to the people responsible for the Beck Street Quality Control program: Jeff Warren, Jeff Collard, Jim Woodard, Sammy Lovato, Luke Peterson and Danny Lovato.
