Good things come to those who wait. NRMCA is pleased to announce that its popular Concrete Pavement Analyst (CPA) software is now available in a 64-bit version, making it compatible with all Microsoft Windows operating systems. "We had several issues we were working out," explains Senior Director of National Resources Phil Kresge. "But persistence paid off and we have overcome those obstacles."

CPA is a design and life-cycle cost comparison software that quickly and accurately quantifies the differences between concrete and asphalt pavements. Using ACI and Asphalt Institute recommendations, CPA compares total ownership costs, providing specifiers the information they need to make sound pavement decisions. A training Webinar, Introduction to Concrete Pavement Analyst, is offered monthly and explains how the software works along with strategies for making effective use of this outstanding tool. The Webinar includes an in-depth explanation of the differences between concrete and asphalt parking areas, including design, construction and maintenance requirements; step-by-step instruction of how to use CPA to produce detailed life-cycle cost comparisons of concrete and equivalent asphalt pavement designs and tips on customizing the software for their local or regional needs.

Keith Beazley, director of industry service for the Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Advisory Council, has used CPA with great success in his promotion efforts. "I think the combination of CPA software and the Design Assistance Program (DAP) is probably the most professional thing we can do as far as promoting parking lots goes," says Beazley. "We’ve done many nice projects and, in fact, when submitting the combination of the CPA analysis and the DAP recommendations, my success rate is perfect with the exception of one job."

NRMCA members can purchase Concrete Pavement Analyst for the low price of $25 per copy ($100 each for non-members).
