ACPA names winners of 22nd Annual ‘Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards’
The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) has named recipients of its 22nd annual “Excellence in Concrete Pavement” awards, which recognize quality concrete pavements constructed in the United States and Canada.
The awards program encourages high-quality workmanship in concrete pavement projects, and serves as a forum for sharing information about highly successful projects. Judges representing various stakeholder groups throughout the transportation-construction community evaluate projects.
The program recognizes contractors, engineers, and project owners who completed outstanding projects. One of the requirements of the program is that projects must be completed in the calendar year prior to judging, which is why project descriptions show dates of 2010 or earlier.
The awards fall into 14 categories applicable to construction and preservation of highways, roadways, airports, and industrial pavement facilities.
The award winners include 25 ACPA contractor members, and were distributed geographically among 17 different regions represented by 15 ACPA-affiliated Chapter/States.
ACPA presents awards in both gold and silver levels. Judging is based on a point system, with independent judges awarding points for quality construction, addressing unique and unusual challenges, innovation, traffic management, and other criteria. In the case of ties, award judges present awards to co-winners. The recipients of the 2011 ACAPA Excellence Awards are the following:
Commercial Service & Military Airports — Gold
Project: South Runway Repair – Andersen Air Force Base Guam
Contractor: Black Construction Corporation
Owner: U.S. Department of the Air Force
Engineer: Stanley Consultants, Inc.
Andersen AFB serves a key role in supporting both combat and military airlift missions in support of the United States war on terrorism. The South Runway is critical to maintaining that support, but the existing 50-year-old runway had deteriorated and needed to be replaced. The project included the removal and replacement of the existing runway, as well as the removal and replacement of degraded airfield lighting; arresting gear realignment and reconstruction; and repairs to taxiway intersections.
