Leading the way to a sustainable future for our business and the communities we operate in.
We believe that a first-rate sustainability program isn’t the right way to do business, it’s the only way to do business.
We invest considerably in reducing our environmental impact in a number of ways, such as incorporating recycled materials into our asphalt production, creating programs to support local communities, and adding to our growing roster of wildlife habitats on properties nationwide.
In keeping with its commitment to stay on the cutting edge, we install porous pavement, which allows rain to move through asphalt and into a rock layer placed below the pavement.
Asphalt mixtures are critical infrastructure building materials. They consist of a blend of about 95 percent stone and sand, heated and bound together with bituminous asphalt.
Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) has been developed to lower the production and placement temperature of traditional Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA). It reduces energy consumption and plant emissions and increases the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement.
Aggregate extraction is an interim land use. Depleted areas are reclaimed for a new land use that blends with and complements adjacent lands. Reclamation efforts include farmland, natural areas, and areas for residential, industrial and commercial development.
Biodiversity initiatives are focused on creating habitats that complement adjacent lands and enhance opportunities for attracting new native species.
This includes creating specific features for species of concern in our ecological programs. Projects include habitats for salamanders and amphibians, snakes, pollinators, migratory birds and turtles.
