Nothing showcases a new building like the installation of the asphalt pavement. One of our Syracuse division’s paving crews were able to provide that service for the new $10.8 million Village of Manlius fire station that is set to open soon.

Bette & Cring was awarded the contract for general construction by the Manlius Village Board. Ruston Paving was contracted by them to install both the binder and top course of asphalt. Once completed, the station will have living quarters, a gym, kitchen, community room and an area for firefighters to train. The new garage will also be able to fit all the department’s vehicles and equipment.

Mardela High School (paving)Crews from Ruston Paving’s Manassas division recently completed work on Mardela High School’s track in Mardela Springs, Maryland. The general contractor on the project was R.A.D. Sports, out of Rockland, MA.  Ruston Paving was recommended to R.A.D. Sports by Beynon Sports, another company that specializes in running track construction and whom we’ve completed several tracks for in the past.

The project consisted of fine grading and paving an 8 lane (30’ wide) track.  Over the past few years, our paving crews in Virginia have developed very good quality control practices and is highly regarded by track surfacing and turf field companies.  A big thanks to our employees willingness to stay out of town on projects located a few hours from our Manassas office.

Ruston Paving was contracted by Dawn Homes, the owners of Village Green Apartments, to mill off 4″ of the existing pavement and install a new surface course of asphalt at one of the complex’s parking lots. However, once the existing material was removed, it was apparent that the subbase was too soft, which was the cause of the pavement’s failure. Dawn Homes was already familiar with the benefits of full depth reclamation, having used the process on one of its other properties. So when FDR was proposed, they agreed to that viable option. Now that the subbase has been stabilized and the new asphalt layer installed, the parking lot will provide years of value to Dawn Homes and the residents at Village Green.

Ruston Paving is coming down the home stretch towards completion of the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology project. With total costs of approximately $89 million, the renovation modernizes the school’s aging facilities, many of which had not been updated since the school was built in the mid-1960′s.

Over the life of the project, which began in the Spring of 2013, our Manassas division’s crews have installed more than 8,000 tons of stone and 11,000 tons of asphalt, which marks this as one of the largest jobs in Ruston Paving’s history. These construction photos feature two of our paving crews as they pave in front of the school and its new Monticello dome.

Frustration To Satisfaction on 03-24-17Last week, Ruston Paving was working for a local grading company that was widening a road in Graham, NC. At 5:25 this past Friday evening, a frustrated homeowner submitted a message via the Contact Form of our website. It seems this homeowner was tired of looking at her mailbox on the ground and restricted access to her driveway due to the road construction.

Even though these issues were the responsibility of the grading contractor (our prominent blue colored equipment can be misleading!), the message was quickly passed to Mark Rogers, our NC regional manager, who showed an exemplary level of service. Mark immediately contacted the homeowner to fully understand the problem, then called the grading company that was still on site to get the problem resolved. The grading company sent a crew to the home right away, installed the mailbox and smoothed the transition from the driveway to the road. After the grading company called Mark to say the work was complete, Mark called the homeowner back to be sure they were satisfied. All of this happened in the span of one hour, which prompted the homeowner’s follow-up message the next morning!!

As the homeowner so succinctly wrote, “that is some stellar customer service!” It’s no coincidence that kind of swift action and level of service allows us to stand head and shoulders above our competition.

While most of our crew members have a lull in activity during winter months, our mechanics are quite the opposite. They are still hard at work prepping our equipment, trucks, and trailers for the upcoming season and ensuring our crews have safe and well maintained iron to get them through the upcoming season.

We can’t thank them enough for their diligent work!
