Just one week ago, Rose Paving hosted our 11th Facilities Maintenance Conference in Downers Grove, Illinois. This half-day event educated facility and property management professionals from all over the country about sustainable strategies for success as well as methods to maintain pavement and delay structural repairs.

Our team thoroughly enjoyed visiting with our clients and learning more about their challenges.   It was also a great opportunity for everyone in attendance to network with their peers.

Highlights from the day included a panel discussion with industry experts Chuck Sampey of Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, Melissa Jones of CB Richard Ellis, and Ernie Wong of Site Design Group, Ltd.  These seasoned professionals answered several questions about sustainability, obtaining LEED credits, and ways to budget for repairs that benefit the environment.  The conference closed with a hilarious hour of comedy delivered by John Caponera, Chicago’s very own veteran comedian and TV star.

We hope everyone gained valuable information about permeable paver bricks, solar reflective coatings, porous asphalt, and other sustainable parking lot solutions including general maintenance techniques and repairs for existing pavement.  Stay tuned for the next FMC!
