Minnesota Producer Turns Up Heat on RCC Promotion

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

As director of engineering services for NRMCA Producer member AVR, Inc., Josh Edwards knew he would have to be prepared for anything as he planned his Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC) promotion seminar. Winter sometimes comes early in Apple Valley, MN, so he was not caught off-guard by a 34 degree day for his demonstration. 

Registrants for the event were undaunted as well, as 110 individuals (shown in part at right) braved the cold to learn about RCC and to see it first-hand, reports NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Phil Kresge.

Kresge presented a live version of the popular RCC: Another Choice for Pavement Webinar and fielded questions from the audience regarding design, durability and maintenance. Following the presentation, a demonstration placement was provided. Equipment and labor for the demo was donated by local equipment dealer Ziegler Caterpillar. Additionally, attendees had the opportunity to "kick the tires" on RCC that had been placed two days prior to the event.

Registrants included engineers and developers, as well as several local asphalt contractors who were curious about RCC and the possibilities it can provide them. Edwards said the program was a great success in spite of the weather, adding that there's considerable interest in RCC as a result.
