Project Overview and Implementation
This award-winning E&B Paving Concrete Division project at the Jasper County Municipal Airport in Rensselaer, Ind. featured outstanding vertical integration solutions contributed by the entire IMI Family of Companies: Irving Materials, E&B Paving (concrete and asphalt) and Specialties Company.
Based in our Rochester, Ind. office, E&B’s Concrete Division completed the 6″ concrete overlay on the 4,000-foot long x 60-foot wide runway using 4,971 cubic yards of ready mix concrete supplied by the Remington, Ind. plant of E&B’s parent company, Irving Materials, Inc. (IMI).
To start the process, E&B’s subsidiary firm, Specialties Company, milled the existing asphalt runway to a profile grade and milled the existing apron two inches. An asphalt paving crew from E&B’s Rochester office supported the effort by paving the taxiways and apron.
In total, the $1.42 million project required two weeks to complete and covered 26,680 square yards of concrete pavement. Notably, while the customer’s concrete strength specification called for 725 psi in 28 days, the IMI-supplied concrete averaged 843 psi in that timeframe.
