Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Phil Kresge recently met with representatives from the Planning & Design and Construction departments of Advance Auto Parts at its headquarters in Roanoke, VA. Kresge used the opportunity to explain the benefits of concrete pavements, including conventional concrete, pervious concrete and roller-compacted concrete. He introduced the group to NRMCA’s Design Assistance Program (DAP) and detailed how DAP has helped other National Account clients. Bob Nablo, director of industry services for the Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, also attended the meeting and offered local assistance as might be needed.

There was interest from the group and Kresge discussed some specific projects with regard to entertaining conventional and pervious concrete design options. Additionally, there was significant interest in roller-compacted concrete as a viable alternative for warehousing and distribution center applications.

Operating over 3,800 stores in 40 states, Advance Auto Parts is the largest retailer of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States.
