Ace Asphalt a Healthy Choice for Algodón Medical


Phoenix, AZ – Ace Asphalt has recently teamed up with McShane Construction Corporation to help bring a greater healthcare presence to the expanding West Valley’s 101 employment corridor.

The Algodón Medical Office Park is a 145-acre healthcare campus located on the northeast corner of the Loop 101/Agua Fria Freeway at Thomas Road.  The highly visible medical complex, which sits just to the north of Banner Estrella Medical Center, will help to serve the health needs of the growing area.  Algodón Medical Office Park will also contain hotel and retail components and is part of the larger Algodón Center, a 1,000-acre master-planned business and commerce park under development by John F. Long Properties.

Ace Asphalt has been contracted to construct the infrastructure for Phase I of the project, which consists of 60 acres.  The project is scheduled to be completed by September 2008.  Ace Asphalt has also been contracted to perform the grading and paving of the 101 Medical Office Center, the office park’s first initial development.

“Algodón (Medical Office Park) is proving to be a great venture between our two companies,” commented Elman DaSilva, Project Manager for Ace Asphalt.  “Similar to Ace, McShane’s honesty and integrity in business dealings create a comfortable working arrangement and open the door for future collaboration between our companies.  It is also helpful to have the same Project Manager for both on-site projects since we have come to know what to expect from each other as we build a solid relationship.”

To complete Phase I, Ace Asphalt plans to meet the project requirements by providing the following services:

  • Installation of approximately 15,000 tons of aggregate base course.
  • Placement and compaction of approximately 11,400 tons of asphalt.
  • The project is expected to be a balanced site, which means no import or export of dirt will be required.

Tracy Hammer, Vice President of McShane Construction Corporation, remarks, “The foundation of our firm’s success lies in the strong relationships that we build with our subcontractor team members.  We anticipate the completion of the two Algodón assignments with Ace Asphalt to represent the catalyst for a strong, long-term relationship between our two firms.  We welcome their professionalism, attention to detail and respect for the budget and schedule on behalf of the sitework project and the new 101 Medical Office Center development that are both underway.  McShane looks forward to continuing this solid relationship with Ace Asphalt in the future.”
