2014 Quality in Construction

The Quality in Construction Awards recognize asphalt pavements of excellence.  “Quality pavements are something every road builder strives to construct. We want to build pavements that deliver on the promise of high performance and drivability for the public,” said William C. Ensor III, NAPA 2014 Chairman. “Projects that earn a Quality in Construction Award have been measured against industry best practices designed to live up to that promise. I’m proud to say that, in earning a 2014 QIC Award, winning contractors have met or exceeded these rigorous quality standards.”

 

For 2014, 205 projects completed by 80 companies were honored with a Quality in Construction Award. Ninety of the projects were singled out for their use of sustainable construction practices, such as incorporating reclaimed and recycled materials and using warm-mix asphalt.
