ASCC Parking Lot Boot Camp in September to Feature Retail Chain's Commitment to Concrete Paving

NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen and Senior Director, Local Paving, Phil Kresge will conduct a one-day version of the popular Parking Lot Boot Camp at the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) annual convention in Minneapolis on Friday, September 16.  A new segment will be added to this special edition.

"We are fortunate, with the help of a state partner, to have secured a convenience store executive to speak during the ASCC Parking Lot Boot Camp. He will tell the attendees why his company now uses concrete paving when adding new stores and renovating existing stores, which currently number over 400 locations," Hansen said. "He has shared with concrete industry people that his decision to switch to concrete from asphalt paving a few years back now saves his company millions of dollars each year in parking lot maintenance, savings that go directly toward the company's bottom line. Never in my career have we been able to find an owner who monitors his yearly ownership cost like this and, on top of all this, be able to have him share it with our industry."

"A plus to this date and the ASCC Parking Lot Boot Camp is that it occurs on the Friday before NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks in Nashville, TN. We will be able to share in great detail the owner’s story and cost saving during the What Works in Concrete Promotion session on Monday, September 19," Hansen noted.
