COMPANY AWARDS

Staker Parson was recognized July 18th at a ceremony honoring the Operational Excellence Award recipients during the The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) Midyear Meeting in Seattle. 
 The Operational Excellence Awards recognize a company's commitment to operations that make them good contractors, good industry ambassadors, and good neighbors," said NAPA Chairman Kevin Kelly.
  • The Ecological Award given to Staker Parson recognizes asphalt plants whose streamlined production facilities improved productivity and safety. The goal is to demonstrate the asphalt industry's concern for environmental issues, the practical methods undertaken to promote environmental stewardship within the company, and to emphasize the inherent recyclability of asphalt pavements.
  •  Before designing the new Brigham City Plant, Staker Parson examined its ecological efforts and identified a number of improvements to make the plant run smoother, more efficiently, and with greater consideration to the environment.
  • "We were able to increase efficiency of the overall operation just by being able to locate the plant in the area of the pit that made the most sense," said Patrick Clark, environmental advisor for Staker Parson.  
COMPANY PROJECTS 
Stone Mountain
A Fast Precast Install   
" When trying to get away and relax at Georgia's Stone Mountain, no one wants to wait in line to use the bathroom. At Stone Mountain Park Campground, one restroom near the park's check-in area was essentially an old, converted closet.  With 431 campsites, 202 full hook-up areas for RVs, 189 partial hook-ups for tents, and 56 primitive tent sites, the demand for that bathroom often was high."
  • Park management set out to change inadequate bathroom conditions by adding a precast concrete multiple-stall restroom, Skyline 1222, from Easi-Set Buildings. 
  • Park officials asked for the restroom to be operational by the popular July 4th weekend, making a fully assembled precast concrete building the right choice to meet that schedule. 
Skyline precast bathroom
Newnan, Ga.-based Oldcastle Precast, an Easi-Set Buildings licensed producer, manufactured and installed the Skyline 1222 Model Restroom. The Skyline Model is an economical multi-user flush restroom building that is ADA compliant. 
Oldcastle was issued a purchase order in mid-April and delivered the building in mid-June. Easi-Set Buildings install quickly, from taking just hours to a few days based on the site conditions and the size of the structure. This restroom was ready for service by July 1.
