Garver’s Aviation Team has completed two airport pavement reconstruction projects this year in Tennessee using a new technique called full-depth reclamation (FDR). Vice President Ryan Sisemore, director of the Aviation Team’s East Region, in conjunction with the Concrete Pavement Association of Tennessee, recently hosted an open lunch-and-learn regarding the FDR process. The event took place at the Shelbyville Municipal Airport, one of the two FDR reconstruction sites, in Shelbyville, Tn. Attendees included various airport management staff, Tennessee Department of Transportation Highway and Maintenance staff, Tennessee Aeronautics Division staff, city and county officials, representatives from two local universities, and fellow aviation engineering consultants.
The FDR process reclaims old pavement and adds cement to create a new base, which makes the process extremely cost-effective, it saves construction time, and the reuse of materials adds a sustainability component. Garver is proud to lead the field in this dramatically different pavement reconstruction process and be able to offer the service to our clients.
