About the research

Since its release late in 2012, the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots can be directly credited for over 5 million SF of paving (that previously would have been asphalt overlay), providing over $12 million in additional sales to National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) producer members, and over $15 million worth of placement work for the concrete contractor customer, for a combined $27 million impact to the concrete paving industry. The guide is nearing ten years in publication, which can be a lifetime in the design and construction industry.

In order to stay at the forefront of its success, an update to the guide is now underway.
