RCC Pavement Council members advocate for roller compacted concrete innovation and growth.
Gulf Atlantic Industrial Equipment is now an associate member of the RCC Pavement Council, partnering with best roller compacted concrete pavement contractors, consultants, engineers, architects, material suppliers, and equipment distributors in North America.
Regarded as one of the southeast’s leading industrial equipment dealers, Gulf Atlantic is a one-stop source for equipment sales and rentals, in-stock parts, and service. Supplying only the most durable mobile continuous mixing plants, portable storage silos, and telescoping radial stacker conveyors, Gulf Atlantic promises fast service, smart solutions, and solid results.
RCC is used when strength, speed of construction, durability, and economy are primary needs. You’ll find RCC pavement projects at ports, rail intermodal and military facilities, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, power plants, and for street and highway development. Benefits of roller compacted concrete include long-life, minimal maintenance, no rutting or potholes, resistance to hydraulic fluid and fuel spills, and more.
More about RCC Pavement Council
Founded in 2014, RCC Pavement Council is an industry trade association representing the interest of those involved with the construction of RCC pavement. RCC pavements were first constructed in the seventies, when the Canadian logging industry switched to environmentally cleaner, land-based log-sorting methods. The industry needed a low-cost, strong pavement to stand up to massive loads and specialized equipment for these large sorting yards (that can span 40 acres or more). Since, RCC has become an industry threshold and thus the Council was formed to further exploit its’ success and support the research needed to establish the highest standards of industry paving protocol.
RCC Pavement Council is comprised of approximately 25 member companies which includes but is not limited to: contractors, equipment suppliers, materials suppliers, and engineers. Research and promotion are primary objectives of the members who strive to improve the quality of RCC pavements and expand their use in a responsible and sustainable manner. The Council Promotion Committee activities are designed to reach as many end users, including owners, designers, and specifiers, as possible. While the Council Research Committee is devoted to credible research focusing on providing answers and finding solutions for the most pressing questions about RCC pavements.
Additionally, the Council is an excellent resource to find qualified RCC contractors, equipment, materials, and construction best practices expertise as well as resources and support to the design community. The Council collaborates closely with industry promotion and research partners including the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA), the Portland Cement Association (PCA), and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA).
