Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In pursuit of concrete as the design of choice, the Kentucky Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (KRMCA) and the Kentucky Concrete Pavement Association (KCPA) recently invited NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Amy Miller to speak to QK4, a design firm headquartered in Louisville. KRMCA/KCPA had recently met with a client of QK4 regarding a large planned project. The client was very interested in hearing about all the benefits of concrete and felt the presented message was so strong, it insisted KRMCA/KCPA meet with QK4 to discuss design. Miller spoke to the firm about designing concrete parking lots the right way and also discussed why engineers should always be including a concrete section for the entire pavement.

"Designers leave the decision to owners who aren’t always informed on the immediate and long-term benefits of bidding and owning a complete concrete section," Miller said. "As representatives of the owner’s best interests, designers should always include concrete designed appropriately. An appropriate design includes not only a proper concrete thickness, but also addresses the details of a concrete section that are often poorly designed and make concrete less economically viable. QK4 received the message loud and clear and were appreciative of a new perspective to their thought process of forging through the pavement design process with an owner."

QK4 is headquartered in Louisville. It started in 1974 and now maintains offices in Frankfort, KY; New Albany, IN; Atlanta and Bristol, TN.
