Customer Remarks: "The high level of quality control and management resources required to successfully pave with this concrete mix cannot be understated. RC's extensive knowledge of concrete pavement and effective subcontractor/supplier management constributed to the timeliness and quality of work."
The project scope consisted of asphalt and concrete pavements, airfield lighting, and an auxiliary airfield control tower. The Simulated Landing Helicopter Assault (LHA) Ship Deck and Two Vertical Landing (VL) pads were constructed with continuously reinforced high temperature concrete pavement sections. The high temperature concrete was specially designed to resist extreme conditions generated by the Marine Corps new F35 Lightning Aircraft during vertical landings.
