Below is the original CAPA logo from 1983 CAPA was formed in 1982 to promote and publicize the use of quality asphalt in the state of Colorado and to encourage fair methods of contracting. Here is some of the history of CAPA. • CAPA incorporated in 1983 as a Trade Association with the State of Colorado named the Colorado Asphalt Producers Association • Original Office: 3801 E Florida Ave, Ste. 400, Denver Brannan was been awarded the 1st place CCA ICE award in the category of Private Owner Project Under $6M, for their Costco Wholesale Distribution Center project in Aurora, CO. This project included the paving scope of the 2021/2022 expansion of Costco’s Distribution Center in Aurora. 8.5” of hot mix asphalt was installed in three lifts using two lower lifts at 3-inch thick each, and a 2.5-inc top lift. Customized mix designs were produced from scratch for this project to adhere to Costco’s asphalt specifications. Excellent coordination from the GC, Southeast Industrial, was taken on this project to keep Costco’s facility open and running the entire length of the expansion. This included managing Costco’s site truck shipments and subcontractors to ultimately execute an aggressive construction schedule resulting in a high quality finished product. This project was delivered on time, including paving through winter conditions while taking special care for temperature specifications. The use of a Warm Mix Additive, Evotherm M1, to asphalt mixes was critical on this project to achieve quality compaction at the lower ambient paving temperatures. The Costco Distribution Center in Aurora was finalized after the General Contractor installed three separate vertical expansions, and Brannan Sand & Gravel paved over 40,000 tons of asphalt.
