The Intel HQ job was a 2 acre parking lot site on the NW corner of their campus. The job was delayed approximately three weeks due to weather conditions (rain), but the scheduled mix days had a brief window that allowed for start, even though the conditions still had intermittent light rain occur sporadically during the two day mix/lay.
The Owner intent on this job was to vet the use of ACE Fiber for the purpose of continuous spec-usage for sites in North America. The collective response from owner, contractor, producer and paver was excellent. All parties agreed that the seamless process of product-to-pave was of the highest merit. All contracting parties have agreed to look to ACE Fiber for upcoming projects (and beyond); and the owner is under positive evaluation for further site recommendations.
CBC Engineering supplied a PE technician to perform the mix for the job. The pre-con meeting was held the afternoon prior to the start to orient the Lakeside Hillsboro plant operations manager with the mix intent; as well as provide a means to educate the tech on plant site protocols. At 5:30 am the next morning, the plant personnel and the tech conducted a safety session. Mixing started approximately 6:38am and finished at 3:44pm; producing 1404 Tons. The next morning mixing started at 6:14am and finished at 1:46pm; producing 740 Tons. A certified average deployment of 4.25 ounces of aramid was deployed into the mix. A certified average deployment of 4.25 ounces of ACE Fiber was deployed into the mix; yielding an average of 2.125 ounces of aramid into the HMA.
