Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)

Roller compacted concrete is a pavement choice designed for industrial facilities. It is great for facilities that have high traffic, truck or forklift operations that do not have the benefit of being able to shut down for a week for standard concrete. RCC offers the benefits of a typical concrete pavement without the downside of being unable to drive on it for days.

RCC is a concrete material that is installed through an asphalt paver and compacted using a typical vibratory roller. The end product is a pavement that has the consistency of an asphalt pavement and the strength of a concrete pavement. Roller Compacted Concrete is a durable economical and environmentally friendly paving material that is able to carry heavy loads.

RCC is made up of the same materials in conventional concrete: cement, water and aggregates. RCC, however, is a much drier mix than conventional concrete and stiff enough to be compacted with rollers.

Typical RCC Applications

We are also known for our emphasis on innovative engineering techniques: Our civil engineers and consultants—specialists in concrete science—inspect each project and conduct pavement analysis to ensure a long-term solution.


As traffic volume increases and funding for pavement maintenance is stretched, RCC is becoming the value-engineered pavement of choice for many applications. Companies are using RCC for these reasons:

  • Cost – Cost was a driving factor in the development of RCC. It has an initial cost competitive to asphalt pavements yet offers the life cycle of and low maintenance of concrete.
  • Durability – RCC is used for all types of industrial or heavy-duty pavement applications. The reason is simple. It has increased strength and performance over conventional concrete.
  • Efficiency – RCC offers a quick return to traffic allowing businesses to remain open. It also helps guarantee projects will be completed on time, within budget and with total client satisfaction.
  • Sustainability – RCC pavements provide higher solar reflectivity, thus reducing urban heat island effects and lighting requirements for pavements.


Concrete has many benefits over conventional asphalt pavements. Concrete is more durable, long-lasting, 100% recyclable and usually requires less maintenance. Rabine is able to perform any size concrete project; from large scale parking lots to small scale sidewalks, pads and ramps. Though typically initially more expensive than asphalt, concrete is often more competitive when factoring in maintenance and its extended lifespan.

Maintaining your pavement will maximize the lifespan of your asphalt. When building a roadway or parking lot, consider the strength of existing soils, compaction, proper drainage and adequate thickness of the road base and asphalt. Performing the correct maintenance at the right time will also save you money by reducing the frequency that resurfacing, or replacement is needed. Maintenance includes patching, crack filling, seal coating, and more. Asphalt resurfacing is a common way of restoring your asphalt pavement to like-new condition. Resurfacing is commonly referred to as an overlay. Our team will identify why pavements are experiencing failure and develop long-term solutions.


Striping and marking are the final details of any pavement project. Newly striped pavement can transform the look of a parking lot and improve traffic flow.  Marking, striping, and signage need regular maintenance. Pavement markings include stripes, handicap symbols, arrows, curb paint, stop signs, etc.


Site excavation is done when asphalt and/or subbase must be removed to ensure a smooth, uniform surface that allows proper drainage for the new pavement. Excavation is often recommended when serious issues are identified. Dirt, clay, and aggregate excavation on small sites can be done using picks, shovels and wheelbarrows. Larger scale excavation projects will require bulldozers and backhoes.


Proper drainage of storm water is crucial for safety and maintenance of any parking lot. Sitting water that infiltrates a paved surface and then freezes/expands exacerbates the degradation of any pavement. Parking lot slopes and drainage systems are meant to efficiently move rainwater off surfaces to locations that do not disturb the surrounding environment. Pipes, retention ponds, detention basins, flumes, catch basins, and drain pans are all examples of ways to route water to intended locations.


Rabine develops scopes, assessments, and budgets to help you manage your parking lot and makes repair and maintenance recommendations based on each customers individual needs. We can create digital maps of your parking lot with scope plans, historical repairs, recommendations, and more. Rabine Compacted Concrete works closely with property managers of a single location or multiple locations. Rabine Compacted Concrete works with a professional team to assess your property, using data capture, digital mapping, predictions, budgeting, reporting and consulting.
