Concrete paving equipment from GOMACO has been playing an important role in rebuilding the runway at Denver International Airport in Denver, Colorado, US. One of the first GOMACO GP-4000 pavers equipped with the latest G+ control system has been used to carry out resurfacing work on the Denver International Airport for Villalobos Concrete Company. The four-track GP-4000 machine has been used to slipform paving passes 7.6m wide and 457mm thick for the new runway surface. To ensure that the machine delivered a quality surface it was equipped with the latest 3D guidance system from Leica Geosystems.
This was the first time that the contractor had utilised stringless paving technology but the firm was able to adapt to the new system and its many advantages.
