Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement Council
Founded in 2014, the 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.
Comprised of approximately 25 member companies which includes but is not limited to: RCC 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).
