The ASCC/NRMCA Paving Committee, a joint committee of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA), Silver Spring, MD, has posted the first six pieces of a Paving Tool Box, designed to assist concrete contractors in understanding and promoting the design and construction of concrete parking lots.
The documents include Concrete Parking Lots: A Quick Reference Guide, Illuminance PFB1 – Understanding Lighting and How LED are Changing the Game, Shedding Light on Concrete’s Reflectivity – A case study focusing on the Leavenworth, KS WalMart, Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots, FAQ About Concrete Parking Lot Construction and Design, and links to ACI 330 Parking Lots & Site Paving publications. The documents are accessible to ASCC members only, a benefit of membership in the association.
The Purpose of the ASCC/NRMCA Paving Committee is to support local markets in making concrete pavement the material of choice. “The Paving Tool Box materials are appropriate for contractors, designers and owners who want to better understand the value of concrete paving,” said Paul Albanelli, committee chair.
“A well designed concrete parking lot signifies quality to customers, tenants, and employees before they even walk through the door,” added Jon Hansen, Senior Vice President, local paving, NRMCA.
