Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)

Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) is a type of pavement used for heavy-use or industrial pavement when strength and durability are especially important.

RCC applications include staging and storage areas, loading docks, parking, streets and intersections, and low-speed roads in intermodal facilities, distribution centers, residential subdivisions, and multifamily developments.

RCC has the strength and performance of conventional concrete with the economy and simplicity of asphalt. RCC allows traffic onto the pavement much sooner than conventional concrete, allowing contractors to deliver time-critical projects faster.

RCC Delivers a Stronger Pavement Faster at Less Cost

  1. Strength: RCC provides a stronger overall pavement section that resists rutting and will not deform under heavy, concentrated loads.
  2. Lower cost: Instead of a typical 20-30” section of stone and asphalt combined, RCC can be placed directly on compacted soil with no stone base in many cases. Because the concrete is placed with conventional or high-speed asphalt pavers, an RCC placement crew requires about half as many workers as a conventional pour. RCC requires no steel reinforcement and no forming, adding even more labor and material savings.
  3. Saves time: RCC allows traffic on the pavement a lot sooner than conventional concrete (3-4 days vs. 7-10 days), so the vertical construction can start sooner.
