Parking Lot Boot Camp Arrives in Kentucky
NRMCA’s popular Parking Lot Boot Camp recently rolled into Richmond, KY, with Concrete Materials Company and contractor Stewart Contracting attending the two-day training session. The boot camp was sponsored by the Kentucky Concrete Association and was taught by NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Amanda Hult and Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Phil Kresge.
“From what I’ve seen in past boot camps, success hinges on the involvement and commitment of the attendees,” said Kresge. “Based on the interaction in this class, and the level of interest from both the producer and the contractor, I expect great things from this group.”
Jason Stewart, owner of Stewart Contracting, said he had offered concrete pavement alternates on past projects, but admitted that he had done so by applying the existing, over-designed, heavy duty concrete details to the overall project. “With his new-found understanding of ACI 330, Jason feels much more confident that he will be competitive and successful with future recommendations,” reported Hult.
NRMCA Parking Lot Boot Camp is a 10-hour program, typically conducted over two days at a contractor or producer’s site. Parking Lot Boot Camps create a team approach for producers and contractors to pursue parking lot opportunities in their service markets, be they new parking lot construction or concrete overlays of asphalt parking lots. The program has become widely successful in helping everyone - producer and contractor - expand their business into paving markets that they normally did not have or only had a small percentage of.
