Based on the client’s needs, RCC paving may be constructed with or without joints. RCC needs neither forms nor finishing, nor does it contain dowels or steel reinforcing. These characteristics make RCC paving simple, fast, and economical. – More about RCC here.

We have been instrumental in writing and updating the Portland Cement Association (PCA) RCC Pavement Specifications and have been asked to sit on various national committees including ACI 327 Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements and the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center.
Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) was once a niche paving system primarily used in military construction projects, but in the last five years RCC applications have emerged and the market opportunities for RCC have grown significantly. RCC is made of the same basic ingredients as conventional concrete – cement, water and aggregates – but unlike conventional […]
