Concrete Resurfacing of Colorado Golf Course Generates Strong Interest
The city of Thornton, CO, is investing $7 million in a major facelift for its Thorncreek Golf Course which was closed all last season, reports NRMCA Vice President, Local Paving, Don Clem. City officials wanted a parking lot which complemented its major investment in the golf course and clubhouse, so they decided to go with the gold standard of parking lots – concrete! The 92,000 square foot overlay of the existing asphalt parking lot saved time, and cost less than the traditional removal and replacement method of construction.

An open house was recently held to showcase the project while under construction. It was co-sponsored by NRMCA members Martin Marietta, GCC of America, SLV Quality Concrete (member of the American Society of Concrete Contractors) and NRMCA. The event included breakfast and lunch for attendees and drew more than 35 professionals, including representatives of cities, counties, concrete contractors, general building contractors, engineers and the concrete industry. NRMCA expects to follow up on many projects that were discussed with attendees.
