Brooks Construction Co., Inc. (Fort Wayne) and Red Gold (Geneva) have been recognized by the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana (APAI) for superior asphalt pavement construction at the APAI’s Annual Conference & Trade Show, held recently at the Marriott East Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. Brooks Construction Co., Inc. won its award for project work done at Red Gold, Geneva, IN.

Greg Yoder, Brooks Construction Co., Inc., Mike Herrmann, Red Gold and Tyler Hatzell, Brooks Construction Co., Inc., accepted the Quality Pavement Award on behalf of the company in the category of Non-Governmental New Construction. Non-Governmental New Construction was one of eight categories in which superior asphalt pavement construction was recognized.

Each project submitted by paving contractors was visited and rated by a licensed professional engineer using several criteria, including:workmanship, i.e., matching existing asphalt around the new surface, uniformity of texture, smoothness, degree of difficulty, use of green technologies such as use of Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) and Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA).

After the engineer’s review of each site, an APAI Quality Review Panel analyzed recommendations for final award decisions.

“APAI is pleased to recognize Brooks Construction Co., Inc. and Red Gold for its outstanding work in the asphalt paving industry,” said William Knopf, APAI Executive.
