NRMCA announces winners of Environmental Excellence awards

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) has announced the winners of its 2019 Environmental Excellence Awards, which recognise contributions for maintaining sound environmental practices.

Entries were reviewed by a panel of judges based on electronic images with a written narrative covering 10 evaluation criteria, including site aesthetics, environmental documentation, training, water management, air quality management, returned concrete plan, community relations, concrete delivery and plant sustainability practices.

This year’s programme provides awards in three categories based on geographical region in which the plant is located (Eastern, Central and Western US). Eligible plants include NRMCA Producer members. The Environmental Excellence Awards programme is co-sponsored by Concrete Products magazine.

Gary Mullings, NRMCA executive vice president of operations and compliance, says: “The NRMCA Environmental Excellence Awards Program were completely revised two years ago. Rules changes have made it easier for plants to enter, making the competition even tougher. These plants have demonstrated that they are the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to being good stewards of the environment,”

The honoured plants are as follows:

Eastern Region Category: Preferred Materials, Inc. Lakeland Plant, Lakeland, Florida, First Place; Maschmeyer Concrete Company, Orlando/Silver Star Plant, Orlando, Florida, Second Place and R.W. Sidley, Inc., North Canton Plant, North Canton, Ohio, Third Place.

Central Region Category: Campbell Concrete & Materials, Hardy Plant, Houston, First Place; Campbell Concrete & Materials, Hockley Plant, Hockley, Texas, Second Place and Cemstone Products Company, Arlington Plant, Arlington, Minnesota, Third Place.

Western Region Category: Central Concrete Supply Martinez Plant, Martinez, California, First Place; CalPortland Kenmore Plant, Kenmore, Washington, Second Place and Evans Construction Jackson Plant, Jackson, Wyoming, Third Place.

Winning entries will be honored in the fall at ConcreteWorks in Orlando, FL. Honored facilities will also be featured in an article in an upcoming edition of Concrete Products magazine and be listed on the NRMCA website.
