GLENN O. HAWBAKER INC. WINS

NATIONAL AWARD FOR QUALITY IN ASPHALT PAVING

Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College, Pa., has won a 2015 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, February 10, at a ceremony during the association’s 61st Annual Meeting in La Quinta, Calif.

“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building quality pavements that deliver high performance and drivability to the public,” said Michael Cote, NAPA 2015 Chairman. “All contractor’s projects earning a Quality in Construction Award are measured against industry best practices designed to live up to our promise. I’m honored to say that, in earning a 2015 QIC Award, Glenn O. Hawbaker has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.

Glenn O. Hawbaker won the award for its work on U.S. 22 in Juniata County. The project included patching and resurfacing of the existing concrete roadway with Superpave asphalt for the base, binder, and wearing courses; bridge repairs and drainage improvements; guide rail installation and pavement markings; and miscellaneous construction. Project challenges included significant delays caused by a rainy spring and early summer, which necessitated the use of two asphalt plants instead of one. Glenn O. Hawbaker worked closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to ensure that all pavement that needed corrections were marked before paving. Using recycled asphalt pavement in all the asphalt mixtures except the surface course, Glenn O. Hawbaker produced a smooth, dense, high-quality asphalt road that exceeded specifications and provides motorists with an excellent ride.

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.

Glenn O. Hawbaker won the award for its work on I-80 in Clarion County. The project consisted of the rehabilitation of 22.6 miles (11.8 eastbound and 10.8 westbound). Work included milling, patching, bridge preservation, asphalt paving, guiderail upgrades, and new pavement markings. The company used intelligent compaction (IC) equipment for all mainline paving — the IC rollers use GPS to monitor several key elements of the paving. This allowed immediate corrections for quality and efficiency. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. worked over two paving seasons and overcame delays caused by unusually rainy weather to produce, a week ahead of schedule, a smooth, high-quality asphalt road that exceeded specifications
