Tight tolerances required for airport repaving

Suit-Kote won the job of resurfacing the 2 126meter long by 45 meter wide Ithaca-Thompkins airport runway. The Federal Aviation Administration mandates tight tolerances for airports. This combined with a tight deadline, the airport was shut to complete the work, meant Suit-Kote had to work efficiently. To do this they turned to SITECH Northeast in upstate New York.

SITECH were able to provide Suit-Kote with the Trimble PCS900 paving control system. This allowed them to keep the tight specs, demanding deadlines and to reduce high material costs and avoid string line problems. See their story below.
