"This award is a tremendous honor for us to receive because it is from our peers and recognizes our employees' efforts.

"Earning the Diamond Paving Commendation shows that contractors are committed to excellence in asphalt pavement construction practices through well-trained, well-educated workforces that use best practices," explained Larry H. Lemon, NAPA's Chairman.


The areas evaluated for the award include: quality control, work zone safety practices, site preparation and planning, paver operation, compaction and training. The Denver Metro Paving group used examples of their best practices on jobs such as E-470 Reconstruction, Yale Avenue Reconstruction, and Green Park-N-Ride Lot to illustrate their exemplary work in these categories.
