Ruston Paving was contracted by Gumenick Properties to repave Malvern Manor, one of their beautiful properties just outside of The Fan District. This is our first project with Gumenick, and we look forward to working with them again soon. The property manager was VERY impressed with all of our crews along with their attention to safety and efforts to keep pedestrian sidewalks cleaned throughout the entire day. All the small things make a big difference. Hats off to the crews and truck drivers – your hard work is noticed!
Ruston Paving was contracted yet again by HHH Properties to perform repairs to the alleys at the Plaza at Landmark in Alexandria. We have been doing work at the shopping center for approximately five years, and this project included a full makeover of the rear of the center. Thanks to our crew members, we were able to safely and efficiently maximize production while still allowing deliveries to be made to the center. This was no easy feat since the plaza is loaded with over 25 businesses!
We value our relationship with HHH Properties and appreciate their loyalty with Ruston Paving. We also value our crews who allow us to work so well with busy customers such as this. Beautiful work!
Ruston Paving crews from our Richmond division recently completed a project for Hercules Contracting, a valued repeat customer. This project is an addition to the Spring Arbor retirement community containing a new memory loss facility to aid with the specific needs of its tenants.
The facility is set to open in fall 2016. So, our crews had a strict schedule to adhere to and were highly successful in completing the project on time. Great work all around!
In 2011, flooding from Tropical Storm Lee caused significant damage to the Owego-Apalachin School District. Consequently, FEMA announced the approval of $23 million in funding to relocate its schools to a less flood-prone area and construct the administrative, maintenance, and storage buildings that were badly damaged. One of the final steps was to reconstruct the roadway through the school’s campus, which was originally budgeted to cost $800,000. By utilizing the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) process, Ruston Paving’s Syracuse division was awarded the job and saved the district $300,000.
We were able to coordinate and present an on-site FDR seminar with the reclamation work, which was attended by school officials, local companies and municipalities. WICZ, the local FOX affiliate, even came out to do a TV news story about the project.
According to the US Department of Labor, Labor day was first celebrated in 1882 and ”is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Our employees certainly deserve that tribute! It is due to their efforts that Ruston Paving has grown to be the strong respectable company it is today. So to our employees, however you chose to spend your holiday weekend, please do it safely as you are truly our greatest asset!
Old Dominion Freight Line, a nationwide shipping company, was expanding its commercial truck and employee parking lots. Initially D.F. Chase, the general contractor on the job, was soliciting bids to install some thick, heavy duty lifts of stone and asphalt to carry the load of the trucking fleet. However, we were able to save Old Dominion money by proposing to stabilize the subbase with Portland cement increasing the overall structural capacity of the pavement section and enabling a cost savings on asphalt.
Understandably, the company was certainly pleased with Ruston Paving’s ability to think outside the box and deliver a superior finished product.
This most recent work was performed by our Greensboro crews as we worked for WeaverCooke, who we are proud to say is also a repeat client of ours.
Earlier this year, our Rochester crews completed a project at French Creek Townhomes, a property managed by Eastwood Management. Based on the success of that job, Eastwood contracted with Ruston Paving again to mill and pave its Clayton Arms Apartments. We’re delighted to say that Eastwood Management has asked us to pave a third property for them later this season.
We’re proud of the relationship we’ve developed with Eastwood Management and look forward to continuing it for years to come.
In 2015, Ruston Paving paved two properties owned by Upstate Portfolio. Based on the success of those projects, our Syracuse division was contracted this year to work at 3 other properties on Widewaters Parkway in Dewitt. A great stretch of weather allowed for our crews to complete the projects with minimal interruptions to the businesses that work there. We heard from many people who remarked that our crews did a great job, and we certainly agree!
