It takes a lot of limerock base material to build a 12,000-foot airport runway. But for White Rock Quarries, its all in a days or in this case, nights work.
Make that many nights work. WRQ has established a night-shift sales team to supply material for a new, full-length runway at Miami International Airport. It is the largest base-rock supply contract in White Rocks history.
The general contractor is Gilbert Southern Corp., a subsidiary of top-ten ranked contractor Peter Kiewit Sons Inc. Gilbert chose White Rock for its ability to consistently provide the high volume of DOT-certified base material needed on the project.
White Rock’s four outbound scales feature remote ticket printers to
shorten the weigh-out process and get drivers back on the road faster.
Among the improvements at White Rock in 2001 is this new hydrocyclone unit, which produces superfine material from the run-off of the larger materials.
