WCVO’s POLYQuik team is headed to the Miami for the International Airfield & Highway Pavements Conference, June 7-10, 2015. This year’s conference theme is “Innovative and Cost-Effective Pavements for a Sustainable Future” and is centered on the latest technologies and best practices in the areas of innovative, durable, cost-effective and more sustainable pavements.

The conference is presented by The Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI), a specialty membership organization focused on transportation and development professionals and the transportation and development industry. It is one of the American Society of Civil Engineer‘s eight specialty Institutes.

Our team is looking forward to the special opportunity to meet directly with engineers, planners, industry representatives, citizen groups, developers, and public officials from around the world to demonstrate how our concrete repair products can help to alleviate many of the challenges for airfield and highway pavement sustainability, rehabilitation and performance.

 

“The conference includes examples of both current practice and the latest results of research, development and implementation of cutting edge pavement technology and practice”, says Conference Co-Chairs Dr. John Harvey and Dr. Katie Chou wrote in a joint statement. “It brings together professionals involved in design, construction, management and research to share and discuss new ideas to meet our common challenges”.

If you are headed to the conference, we invite you to stop by our booth to learn about what POLYQuik can offer. POLYQuik Fastpatch concrete repair products are fast curing, tough materials. Each product is designed with ready-to-use package to meet your application needs. For more information, please visit www.polyquik.com.

2014 FAA Worldwide Airport Technology Transfer Conference

When we mention POLYQuik Fastpatch concrete repair products, one may associate them with filling voids, defects and damaged areas in roadways, parking lots, warehouses and sidewalks; but did you know our POLYQuik products are also optimal for airport runways, taxiways, and aprons?

WVCO representatives are headed to Galloway, NJ early next month with airport operators, aviation consultants, construction contractors, research engineers, and academic researchers at the 2014 FAA Worldwide Airport Technology Transfer Conference!

The conference, sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey August 5-7, 2014, will be a unique opportunity for our team to focus attention on how our concrete repair products can be used to improve airport safety and pavement technologies.

The keynote speaker for this event will be Scott Murrell, the Chief Civil Engineer of the Port Authority of NY & NJ. During his extensive career, he has designed numerous pavement, rail, drainage and utility projects. Airfield projects range from reconstruction of major runways to designing a precast concrete taxiway pavement. The conference will be held at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, located near some of the top attractions on the Jersey Shore.
