PROJECT DETAILS:  AGP/Peltz Companies mixed and placed over 65,000 cubic yards of 7” Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavement (RCC) for the new Lowe’s Distribution Center near Rome, GA.   RCC was selected in lieu of asphalt by the owner based on pricing and performance expectations.   The RCC was placed in 30-foot pavement lanes with control joints cut longitudinally and transversely at 15 feet.  The joints were subsequently routed and sealed with Sikaflex polyurethane sealant.  Following the success of this project, Lowes has elected to utilize RCC again in 2016/2017 at their new Distribution Facility in Pleasant View, TN.

Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC) in general has two major markets: pavements and water resources.  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). RCC met this challenge and has since expanded to other heavy-duty applications.

The RCC Pavement Council and website’s focus is on RCC Pavements. The vast majority of this site’s information is not applicable for water resources applications.   Learn more about Membership or our Contractors and Allies.

Main Benefits of RCC for Distribution Centers

  • Fast construction
  • Cost-effective
  • Open to traffic shortly after placement
  • Resistance to shoving and pushing
  • Long life pavement
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • No rutting
  • No pot holes
  • Resistance to hydraulic fluid and fuel spills
  • Will not soften under high temperatures

Throughout the year our members host booths at various conferences, we welcome you to visit us at any of our EVENTS.
