Pavement surface type may be binary, but the choice is based on many subset decisions around many factors.

Heavily Focused on Safety and Training

The American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA)

The American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) was created to advocate for the concrete pumping industry with a particular emphasis on safety. In 1974, when the association began, one of the biggest challenges was persuading contractors to accept the concept of a concrete pump over crane and bucket, truck dumping, or other concrete laying methods. At that time, the pumping equipment was not as reliable as it is today, but over the years there have been numerous innovations in concrete pumping equipment.
