Seven things you should know about quality assurance

By Danny Gierhart, P.E.

Like a multitude of other things, a good quality, long-lasting pavement costs money. The pavement design, materials, production, placement and compaction and a whole host of other secondary activities all add to the overall cost.

It’s only natural that when you spend a lot of money on something, you want to make absolutely sure that you’re getting what you paid for. Quality assurance is important because of the large amount of taxpayer money it takes to build pavements, so we want to make sure it’s money well-spent.


Job board focuses on women of asphalt

Women comprise less than ten percent of the construction workforce. There are many talented women who would make great employees if they knew of the opportunities and particularly if they felt a company would be supportive.

Sharing jobs in your organization on the Women of Asphalt (WofA) job board endorses diversity. Bringing more women into the industry is a prime part of Women of Asphalt’s mission.
