Missouri Restaurant Site of Luncheon Seminar on Concrete Overlays

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Cantina Laredo restaurant in Springfield, MO, was the site of recent luncheon seminar on concrete overlays and new concrete parking lots. It was a fitting location since Cantina Laredo used both applications during the remodel, expansion and conversion of an outdated Italian restaurant into an upscale location of fine Mexican cuisine. The luncheon was sponsored by the Concrete Promotion Council of the Ozarks (CPCOZ) and the invited guests represented a cross section of architects, engineers, facilities managers and contractors, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Jon Hansen. Of the 29 attendees, 15 requested more information about the application. One facilities manager who’s responsible for the maintenance of 20 parking lots for his company requested a site visit and Design Assistance Program (DAP) work up before leaving the luncheon.

"The Cantina Laredo project was the first NRMCA DAP in the nation that incorporated both an overlay of an existing asphalt parking lot and an expansion that was new parking lot," Hansen said. "The goal of the DAP process was to make it look seamless and the contractor perfected the design. The CPCOZ is now capitalizing on the success of this project to bring broad awareness to the right people in the area. It is a perfect example of timely promotion."
