ICPI Launches New Accreditation Program

The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, which supports segmental concrete pavement systems, like the one seen above launches new accreditation program.

The ICPI announces the launch of their new accreditation program, Accredited Paver Installation Company, which recognizes companies that meet installation best practices and provides promotional opportunities on their commitment to build to industry-established guidelines.

The APIC program will highlight companies that implement quality construction and craftsmanship as well as the use of sound business practices. The program also provides third party credibility by a peer association that recognizes skills, knowledge and conformance to industry best practices.

"The ICPI Accredited Paver Installer Company program shows your customers that you are committed to best practices and proves you are dedicated to providing superior customer service and craftsmanship," said Gary Stowe, Stowe Contracting, Inc. He continued, "An accreditation program is a big plus for the industry. Joined with the ICPI Concrete Paver Installation Certification, this program supports segmental pavement as a unique construction trade."

To become accredited, paver installation companies must adhere to installation guidelines recommended by ICPI, ensure company staff maintains knowledge of current best practices and technology, support the industry and conduct business in a professional manner.

The program includes a conformance to a strict set of requirements. The owner/principal or managing employee of the company must hold a current ICPI Certified Installer certification:

? An ICPI Certified Installer must be present on every job site and involved in each step of the project
? A company safety program must be in place
? Applicable business license and insurance policies must be current at all times

"The program has already received positive initial feedback," said Charles McGrath, ICPI Executive Director, "Several companies have already committed to participating." The funds generated from the registration fees will be reinvested into marketing support for the participants. Paver Installation Contractor companies have asked for this program to be able to promote their company as following installation best practices.
