HUBBARD CONSTRUCTION CO. WINS NATIONAL AWARD FOR QUALITY IN ASPHALT PAVING

Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Hubbard Construction Co., of Tampa, Fla., has won a 2015 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, February 10, at a ceremony during the association’s 61st Annual Meeting in La Quinta, Calif.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building quality pavements that deliver high performance and drivability to the public,” said Michael Cote, NAPA 2015 Chairman. “All contractor’s projects earning a Quality in Construction Award are measured against industry best practices designed to live up to our promise. I’m honored to say that, in earning a 2015 QIC Award, Hubbard Construction Co., has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
Hubbard Construction Co. won the award for its work on State Route 55/U.S. 19 North in Clearwater. There were multiple challenges on this mill and overlay project, including heavy traffic, night work, time restrictions due to commuter traffic, and other ongoing construction projects at either end of this 9-mile stretch of road. With the roadway flanked by numerous businesses, Hubbard Construction used several flagmen to keep vehicular traffic and pedestrians moving in and out of side streets and parking lots. Despite the difficulties, the company produced a smooth, high-quality road that will benefit area motorists.
