Pavement selection & judging criteria
Entries received by the deadline, November 22, 2006, will be judged by a panel of design professionals this fall. Winning and honorable mention projects will be featured in Concrete Products and cosponsors’ periodicals.
Entries will be judged on project’s design, economy and craftsmanship, weighing these related criteria: color, shape, texture, pattern, abrasion resistance, maintenance and life-cycle costs; structural capacity; compatibility with related construction materials and systems; construction expediency; vehicular/pedestrian safety; ADA compliance/requirements; ecological and energy conservation factors; historic preservation or replication; local economic or cultural development.
