Auto Zone (Chapel Hill)Ruston Paving has been hard at work as our construction season is in full swing across all our divisions. Recently, our Durham crews set to work on a new AutoZone in Chapel Hill. Contracted by first-time customer, HJB Construction, this project required quite a bit of both onsite and road work, and our crews were ready for the job.

With the milling complete, new asphalt installed, and pavement markings in place, this brand new AutoZone store is looking spick and span for its first customers.

BiomerieuxAs bioMérieux, a world leader in the field of in vitro diagnostics, continues to expand its US headquarters in Durham, Ruston Paving is proud to once again work onsite. After removing the topsoil, our crews stabilized the area for a new parking lot by using the process of soil stabilization. An asphalt pavement layer was then installed along with new sidewalks.

Acco Brands (paving)Ruston Paving was contracted directly by Acco Brands, Inc. to mill and pave their employee parking lot. We were also able to correct some drainage issues that plagued this warehouse facility for the Illinois-based company, which makes three-ring binders, folders and document covers. Both our paving and grading crews were very helpful and professional to our contacts at Acco, which was much appreciated.  We offered suggestions to them on other ways to improve their parking lot outside of what the plans called for and they were grateful for our ideas.

There may even be a second phase to this project because of the fantastic work our crews did on the first phase.  Great job to everyone who had a hand in this project!

Preventing RollawaysEvery year, hundreds of accidents and injuries occur from rollaway vehicles in which a motor vehicle, after the transmission has been locked into a parked position, is believed to have rolled either forward or backward by the transmission purposefully or inadvertently moving or slipping into another gear position. Operators experiencing roll-away and/or runaways have been pinned by their vehicle, fallen under the wheels of their vehicle while chasing it down the street, or have allowed their unattended vehicle to strike members of the community.

In an effort to eliminate this preventable incident, Ruston Paving has added mandatory wheel chocks be placed on all our unattended vehicles and trailers. This is just one of the many facets to our safety program that serves to our make our job sites safer and protect our employees and the general public.

ROC ReferralsAnother couple rounds of applause were in order for Travis and Curtis as they both received their referral bonus when the friends they brought to Ruston Paving hit their one year anniversary.
We’ve said it before but it bears repeating, our employees are the best in the business and we’re always happy to reward those who make our team stronger!

Kennametal (FDR)Ruston Paving was contacted by Kennemetal to reconstruct its aging parking lot. Over the years, the pavement structure had failed and there were serious drainage issues that needed to be addressed. After listening to the engineering manager on site, we suggested the full depth reclamation process. This process would provide a strong subbase and allow us to reshape the parking, thereby eliminating the drainage problems. The entire lot was then paved with two lifts of hot mix asphalt.

While on site, all of our employees noticed Kennametal’s safety banner touting 100 Reasons To Be 100% Safe. It’s nice to work with a company that shares Ruston Paving’s commitment to working safely!

Fort Lee Baptist ChurchRuston Paving was contacted directly by the Fort Lee Baptist Church, near the Richmond Airport, to reconstruct its parking lot.  A church representative gave us numerous compliments on the crews’ professionalism, work ethic, and safety measures.  He made a point to say that both our foremen took the time to answer his questions in the field and treated him with respect and courtesy, even when they were in the middle of something.  This type of courtesy goes a long way, and it did not go unnoticed.  Hats off to the crews – you are what sets us apart from our competition!

Cookout (finished)Ruston Paving was contracted by Qualified Builders to pave the new Cook Out restaurant in Mechanicsville.  We have completed numerous projects with Qualified Builders out of our Durham North Carolina division and are excited to extend the relationship into Virginia.

This project was on a fast track schedule and the crews worked above and beyond to get the job completed.  Nice work by everyone involved!

Seneca County Courthouse (paving)Ruston Paving completed the paving on a multi-year reconstruction project at the Seneca County Courthouse. The general contractor, Frank J. Marianacci, needed our crews to install the asphalt binder and top course once the building renovations were finished.

Constructed between 1845 and 1860, the three government buildings that comprise the Seneca County Courthouse Complex are considered an architectural landmark. To most, however, they are known as The Three Bears.
