The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has released the latest version of their parking area marketing tools. Version 3 of the Concrete Pavement Analyst (CPA) software quickly and accurately quantifies the differences between concrete and asphalt pavements. Using American Concrete Institute and Asphalt Institute recommendations, CPA compares total ownership costs, providing specifiers the information they need to make sound pavement decisions.
Version 3 features a new asphalt cost calculator allowing for simplified conversion of in-place square foot cost to in-place per ton cost. The software also includes an option to include aggregate subbase into concrete cost calculation to more accurately reflect real-life designs. The software is re-formatted with user-friendly reports that are concise, easy-to-read and includes updated default values for material and labor costs.
Existing CPA discs can be traded for Version 3 for $3.50 each. Without trade-in, new copies are $25 ($100 for non-members/partners). Existing CPA Program Partners pay only $5 for new discs. Organizations can become partners through a purchase of 100 discs for $1,000. To purchase the software, visit the NRMCA website at www.NRMCA.org.
