Sheetz Recognizes the Value of Concrete Parking Areas

Article by Ken Crank, PACA's Director of Concrete Promotion

PACA staff member, Ken Crank, and the NRMCA’s Phil Kresge recently sat down with Sheetz Director of Building and Petroleum Construction Doug Knisely and Project Manager/Estimator Ken Gardner to discuss concrete and the role it plays in each store that Sheetz builds.

Mr. Knisely noted that the durability of concrete plays a heavy role in why they select it for their parking lots. Both gentlemen also recognize the benefits that concrete brings with its reflectivity, citing that they incorporate LED lighting into their stores and realize a cost savings due to that fact. They will continue to incorporate concrete pavements in all their locations.

In addition to the general discussion, the Sheetz team also provided their concrete specification and scope of work documents for review and comment. That information has been forwarded to both the NRMCA and PACA technical staff.

Sheetz currently operates 553 stores in in Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
