J.H. Rudolph Receives National Award for EVV Airport Project

March 17th, 2015

J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. was recently awarded a 2014 Quality in Construction Award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement for work done on Runway 4-22 at Evansville Regional Airport last summer.  “Quality pavements are something every road builder strives to construct. We want to build pavements that deliver on the promise of high performance and drivability for the public,” said William C. Ensor III, NAPA 2014 Chairman. “Projects that earn a Quality in Construction Award have been measured against industry best practices designed to live up to that promise. I’m proud to say that, in earning a 2014 QIC Award, J.H. Rudolph & Co. Inc. has met or exceeded these rigorous quality standards.”

Aerial Long Shot_May 30 2014Work on Runway 4-22 included rehabilitation, reconstruction and new construction, as well as green paving techniques incorporating 25 percent recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) into the base and intermediate mixes. A compact, smooth pavement was achieved on the runway seven (7) days ahead of schedule by paving with multiple laydown techniques and employing strict quality control. “Each of our projects are high priority, but with the Runway Improvement project, we were given the opportunity to showcase what we do best: lay top quality asphalt in the most efficient and effective manner possible,” commented J.H. Rudolph & Co. Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Mulzer.  “We finished the project seven (7) days early, a feat that wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of our dedicated employees.  This project was definitely a win-win for everyone involved and we were thrilled to be a part of it.”

The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) is the only trade association that exclusively represents the interests of the asphalt producer/contractor on the national level with Congress, government agencies, and other national trade and business organizations. NAPA supports an active research program designed to improve the quality of asphalt pavements and paving techniques used in the construction of roads, streets, highways, parking lots, airports, and environmental and recreational facilities. The association provides technical, educational, and marketing materials and information to its members; supplies product information to users and specifiers of paving materials; and conducts training courses. The association, which counts more than 1,100 companies as members, was founded in 1955.

“We are very pleased that our partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet on these projects resulted in recognition at a national level. Paving on these highly congested road ways had the potential to create many issues for the travelling public and businesses located on the routes, however, we were able to work with KYTC to schedule working at night, keeping disruptions to a minimum,” commented Chris Foster, Construction Manager at J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. “It is our goal to deliver this same caliber of high quality to every project we complete so the travelling public can experience it on all the roads we pave.”
