The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) announced the hiring of Luke McHugh as senior director, local paving, for the Northeast Region. In his new role, he will work with NRMCA partners and members to help deliver successful local concrete paving projects and implement strategies that increase the use of various forms of ready-mixed concrete in parking areas, local streets and roads, and other applications.
McHugh is a civil engineer registered in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Florida with more than 23 years of experience. He has been a consulting engineer for 30 years, the last 23 as a project engineer, project manager, engineering staff manager, and aviation technical lead providing consultation services at airports on a variety of landside and airside projects, concentrating on runway, taxiway and apron pavement design, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.
“The addition of Luke to the Local Paving team will help NRMCA ensure that states around the Great Lakes region and into the Northeast U.S. have the support they need to be successful with concrete paving projects,” says NRMCA President Robert Garbini in a press release. “Owners and developers are placing more emphasis on life-cycle cost, durability and reducing annual maintenance costs, and concrete pavements help them achieve these objectives.”
