  • Lockheed Martin – Lot E Repairs

    Lockheed Martin

    Manassas, Virginia

    While on-site at Lockheed Martin’s Manassas location, Ruston Paving recognized a severely distressed parking area that was a prime candidate for Full Depth Reclamation (FDR). This eco-friendly construction option was able to save Lockheed Martin both time and money while providing a finished product that will last for years to come.


  • Woodcliff Office Park

    Woodcliff Office Park

    Fairport, New York

    Originally constructed in 2002, the parking area at #370 Woodcliff Drive was quickly deteriorating due to failures resulting from poor subsurface drainage and settling. A number of options were proposed and it was ultimately decided that the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) with Portland Cement Stabilization was the best and most cost effective solution.


  • Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments

    Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments

    Durham, North Carolina

    The site of the new Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments contained broken and deteriorated pavement that required a cost effective way to achieve a solid pavement structure. By employing the process of full depth reclamation (FDR) with Portland cement stabilization, we were able to modify and strengthen the underlying base while eliminating unnecessary trucking costs by utilizing the existing on-site material.


  • TUAV Facility

    TUAV Facility

    Fort Drum, New York

    Because tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (TUAV) are successfully transforming the way the US military does business, combatant commanders are requesting them in ever greater numbers. Therefore, a new access road and runway was required to support these TUAVs at Fort Drum’s Wheeler Sack Army Airfield. Ruston Paving was proud to fine grade and pave this 148,400 square foot project.


  • Spotsylvania Bus Parking

    Spotsylvania Bus Parking

    Fredericksburg, Virginia

    The Spotsylvania County Schools contracted our services to re-construct the existing 185,000 SF bus parking area. Utilizing a green recycling process known as full depth reclamation with Portland cement stabilization, we were able to re-construct the parking area without removing or relocating any of the existing pavement and stone base.


  • Greensboro Post Office

    Greensboro Post Office

    Greensboro, North Carolina

    In order to not disrupt the services of our postal system, it took working nights and weekends to fully reconstruct parking area at the Greensboro Post Office. Reconstruction included the removal and replacement of 50,900 SF of pavement and curb while providing new ADA improvements.


  • Unity at Park Ridge

    Unity at Park Ridge

    Rochester, New York

    A multi-phase project spanning over two years, the Unity at Park Ridge Living Center required precise coordination and scheduling to meet the client’s deadlines. Working closely with LeChase Construction, we were able to complete the project while maintaining the existing parking for the fully operational adjacent hospital.


  • Birnie Bus Service

    Birnie Bus Service

    Rome, New York

    For our second major project for Birnie Bus Service, Inc. (BBS) we provided the final grading and paving for their new 19,250 SF bus service facility. Headquartered at Griffiss Business and Technology Park, BBS provides services for tour groups, corporate travel, public transportation and handicapped services throughout New York State.


  • Needham B. Broughton High School

    Needham B. Broughton High School

    Raleigh, North Carolina

    Located in the downtown historic district, the 1,000 ton overlay at Needham B. Broughton High School required great attention to detail as well as close traffic coordination.

Lockheed Martin – Lot E Repairs

Location: Manassas, Virginia

Owner: Lockheed Martin

Ruston Paving was contracted by Lockheed Martin to overlay a large existing parking lot on their Manassas, Virginia campus. Upon visiting the site, Ruston Paving noticed that a parking lot adjacent to the worksite had been closed off. Ruston Paving inquired about the parking lot and learned that it had been severely damaged by a mobile crane utilized during a recent, and unrelated, roof restoration project. After further investigation, it was apparent that the native soils, existing stone base, and asphalt paving section all were not designed to support the heavy point loads inflicted by the crane.

After meeting with the Lockheed Martin purchasing team, as well as their engineers, Ruston Paving suggested Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) with Portland cement stabilization as a cost effective and environmentally-conscious solution. Ultimately the FDR option was selected, and the client was able to take advantage of a 20-30% cost savings, all while significantly shortening their construction schedule. At the conclusion of the project, Ruston Paving received numerous compliments from Lockheed Martin regarding the professionalism of our crews, the performance of their work, and their dedication to quality. As Lockheed Martin continues to make significant renovations to their existing facilities and parking lots, we’re sure that they will always keep FDR in mind as a viable and effective solution.

Woodcliff Office Park - Full Depth Reclamation

Location: Fairport, New York

Owner: HRPT/HUB Properties Trust

Ruston Paving was approached by REIT Management and Research to provide options for the repair and reconstruction of the deteriorating parking area. During the first phase, we were contracted to mill and replace a portion of the parking area surface. Once the original surface had been removed and evaluated, it was determined that it was necessary to remove, undercut and replace large areas of subgrade and install subsurface drainage in order to stabilize the area for final surfacing. This resulted in more than anticipated expenditures and extended the work schedule significantly.

The following year after an expensive lesson learned from the first phase, the engineer suggested a full depth removal and replacement of the stone base and pavement for the next phase. Ruston Paving then made the recommendation to consider a Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) with Portland cement stabilization option. The FDR option was selected and the client was able to take advantage of a 30% to 40% cost savings while providing a better product and shortening the construction schedule. This eco-friendly option not only benefitted the client but also future generations.

Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments - Full Depth Reclamation

Location: Durham, North Carolina

Owner: KPM, LLC

Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments is a new premier gated community that is conveniently located within the Triangle area of North Carolina. When our project management team visited the site during construction of the apartments, we knew we could solve the distressed pavement issues and provide the owner with a solid pavement structure. Utilizing Full Depth Reclamation (FDR), we would be able to recycle the existing pavement and re-use the base following the stabilization with Portland cement.

The construction was completed in phases to allow the owner to begin selling and leasing finished units. The second, more difficult, phase of the project had several tight parking areas as well as some longer, open drive lanes. A Bomag MPH 100 reclaimer was utilized in the tight areas and a larger Wirtgen 2400 reclaimer was used along the drive lanes. Portland cement, the stabilizing additive, was then incorporated utilizing a Stoltzfus site spreader. The 20,000 square foot area was finished in one day while allowing other trades to continue working around the apartment complex. After watering the site to allow for proper curing of the cement-stabilized base, a 2” surface course of hot mix asphalt was applied.

The finished product has garnered nothing but positive feedback from the owner and community residents.

Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TUAV) Facility

Location: Fort Drum, New York

Owner: US Federal Government

Fort Drum, a US Army military reservation located near Watertown, NY, is home to the 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed unit in the U.S. Army. The Department of Defense began utilizing tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (TUAV), such as the Predator drone, to help support these soldiers in their combat missions. Along with Structural Associates, Ruston Paving was tasked with constructing the new 148,400 square foot runway for these TUAVs at Fort Drum’s Wheeler Sack Army Airfield.

The scope of work dictated that we complete our portion of the job in three phases. The first phase consisted of fine grading the existing stone base of the access road and runway areas. Next, our paving crews mobilized on site to place and compact 38mm of hot mix asphalt dense binder on top of which a liquid asphalt tack coat was applied. Finally, we paved the project site with 38mm of hot mix asphalt surface course.

Besides the completion of the TUAV Facility, Ruston Paving has been proud to serve the soldiers at Fort Drum by working on other projects such as the Battle Simulation Center, the Army Reserve Center, Enduring Freedom Drive, Pine Woods Residential Communities and the 63rd EOD Facility.

Spotsylvania Bus Parking Lot Repairs – Fleet Transportation Facility

Location: Fredericksburg, Virginia

Owner: Spotsylvania County Schools

Ruston Paving Co., Inc. was contracted by Spotsylvania County Schools to reconstruct a 385,000 square foot school bus parking area. Due to previous failures in the parking area, the project was not awarded based on cost alone. Instead, the school system interviewed contractors and ultimately awarded the project to Ruston Paving based on our proposed methodology, experience, proposed costs and favorable references. During this project, Ruston Paving consulted with the Portland Cement Association (PCA) to ensure best practices were utilized and ultimate project success was achieved.

This project area was rehabilitated through a process involving full depth reclamation with portland cement stabilization. The full depth reclamation process consists of pulverizing the existing surface and stone base to a depth of 12”, spreading water and portland cement on the surface then mixing the material thoroughly into the 12” section utilizing our reclaimer/stabilizer equipment. Once mixed in, rollers are used to compact the product and a grader follows behind to get the area to grade. Then the watering/curing process continues as the cement mixture continues to set up. Once the cement has cured, a tack coat is applied and two lifts of hot mix asphalt are installed conventionally. The “green” stabilization process allowed us to add significant strength to the existing base material thus eliminating the need for total reconstruction and waste. The process also allows for a reduced pavement section that helps to maintain the original grades.

An incredible amount of teamwork was displayed on this project – from all the members of the management team that helped to design, present and coordinate the project to the crews in field that performed the work, it was truly a team effort and we were able to make the owner very happy. Special thanks to the Portland Cement Association for their efforts as well.

United States Postal Service Administrative Offices

Location: Greensboro, North Carolina

Owner: Highwoods Properties

Highwoods Properties, a fully integrated and self administered real estate investment trust (“REIT”) contracted with Ruston Paving to reconstruct the parking area at one of their many properties on Gallimore Dairy Road in Greensboro, North Carolina. We have done numerous projects with Highwoods in years past.

As the tenant, the United States Postal Service (USPS) was renewing a lease that required the reconstruction of the parking areas. Due to the need to keep the USPS in full operation, we were required to complete the work during off peak hours. Therefore we completed the project during nights and weekends.

The work consisted of the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt, curb and gutter. New handicapped ramps were also provided to meet ADA requirements.

During construction, there were many areas encountered that contained unstable subgrade and subbase material. Stabilization was achieved by undercutting the subgrade and replacing the material with new stone base and an interlocking geogrid fabric thus enhancing the load capacity of the soil. This unforeseen additional work extended the schedule and added to the difficulty of completing the project during off-peak hours.

Thanks to the long hours and hard work, our crews completed the project successfully while minimizing delays.

Unity at Park Ridge - Senior Living Center

Location: Rochester, New York

Owner: Unity Health Systems

Unity Health System serves the city of Rochester, New York as a full service hospital as well as providing long term care for seniors. This project at the Long Pond road property is the latest of many expansions to the hospital and senior living centers in the past 15 years. Ruston Paving is honored to have been an integral part of all the expansions at this site.

We worked closely with locally owned and operated LeChase Construction Company to coordinate the reconstruction and expansion of the parking areas for the newest senior living center. Phasing of the work was required in order to accommodate the ongoing operations at the hospital. The early phases of the project where constructed to allow for access to the site and to expand the parking area so that part of the existing parking could be utilized for the building expansion.

Birnie Bus Service - Leonard's Bus Sales, Inc.

Location: Rome, New York

Owner: Birnie Bus Service Inc.

Ruston Paving was contracted by Birnie Bus Service, Inc. to complete a facility expansion at its Rome, New York facility. Birnie Bus is presently one of the largest bus companies in the United States. The property, currently leased to Leonard Bus Sales, Inc., was previously a greenfield site located in the Griffiss Business and Technology Park.

According to the specifications set forth in the plans, Ruston Paving was to fine grade the existing stone base and pave the 155,000 square foot parking area that would encompass the new 19,250 square foot bus service facility. The first lift of hot mix asphalt would be 4” of binder and that would be topped with 2” of surface mix. Finally, the entire parking area was line striped.

This project marked the second major project Ruston Paving has completed for Birnie Bus at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park. In 2005, Ruston Paving finished a 121,000 square foot total site package. At the end of both projects, Ruston Paving received nothing but compliments as the owner was extremely pleased with the quality and efficiency of the work. Hopefully Ruston Paving will be able to work for Birnie Bus on a future project as there are plans for future expansion.

Wake County Schools - Needham B. Broughton High School

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

Owner: Wake County Schools

Needham B. Broughton High School, the flagship of the Wake County Public Schools, was in desperate need of additional parking. With more students driving personal vehicles to school, the number of existing parking spaces was not adequate.

Located in the heart of the historic district of Raleigh, North Carolina, the thought of paving over existing green space was controversial and led many protesters to voice their opinions during construction. Working amongst the protesters, Ruston Paving was able to construct an additional 150 car parking area and resurface an additional 150 spaces.

Construction traffic coordination was a challenge as we were required to export roughly 4,000 cubic yards of material from the site and import equally as much for the new construction and rehabilitation. In order to avoid traffic, we had to mobilize our equipment during overnight hours.

The tight quarters of the project required some creative storm water management design. An underground storm water retention system was employed which had to be installed with limited grade tolerances. Fortunately, the majority of the construction was completed during the summer recess for the students. However, the final touches were completed in the beginning of the school year.
