McCartney Construction Company is committed to providing the highest quality roads for the traveling public. People in our community and from other parts of the United States will drive and ride on the roads we build and we take that responsibility seriously. Whether our customers are taking a family trip, driving a commercial truck, going to school, church, or work, we want them to be confident that the roads they drive on were built to the highest standards of safety and excellence. They can because our quality control department ensures that our asphalt is of the highest caliber. Throughout our history, we have received numerous awards and recognition for quality paving. After the completion of the Anniston Eastern Bypass, we received the Sheldon G. Hayes Award.
The Sheldon G. Hayes Award winner is determined through a two-year process. Highway pavement projects using more than 50,000 tons of asphalt are eligible for consideration. Initially, they must win a Quality in Construction (QIC) Award, which is determined by numerical scores given by pavement engineers at the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) on the basis of how well the contractor met the specifications and achieved density on the finished pavement. All the pavements that meet a benchmark figure are given the QIC award.
The year after a project wins a QIC Award, it may be considered for the Sheldon G. Hayes Award. The top-ranked projects from each year are tested for smoothness, then visually inspected by an independent pavement consultant with many years of experience in the industry. This year, the evaluators praised the contestants for high-quality construction practices resulting in smooth, safe, and durable pavements.
