Volunteers Needed for New Promotion Committee RCC Task Force

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC) pavement is increasingly becoming a viable alternative to conventional asphalt paving and offers our industry tremendous growth opportunities. "Although RCC is not new, it has not historically been a part of the ready mix rroducer’s standard offering," said NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Phil Kresge. "In the past, RCC has been considered a product that could only be supplied by dedicated RCC contractors with specialized equipment. However, we know that RCC can easily be manufactured by any ready mix producer and can be placed by local concrete and asphalt contractors. Of course, all this comes with a learning curve."

In an effort to minimize that curve, NRMCA's Promotion Committee recently authorized the formation of a Roller-Compacted Concrete Task Force that will look into several areas of particular interest with regard to RCC and the ready mix producer. Among those interests are RCC specification, RCC placement guidelines and RCC maintenance guidelines. Kresge reports that the task force will also look into better understanding the ready mix industry’s perceptions of RCC as well as the dynamics of producer/contractor relationships with regard to RCC promotion.

The task force is open to all NRMCA members. Anyone interested in participating should contact Kresge at
