July Membership Meeting: Tour of Rieth-Riley’s Asphalt Plant & Drone Demonstration

We have been invited to tour Rieth-Riley’s Asphalt Plant and get a demonstration on how they utilize drones on their projects.

Rieth-Riley Construction Co., Inc is a 100% employee owned company operating in Indiana and Michigan. Focusing on asphalt and concrete road construction, Rieth-Riley is an industry leader that has been operating for over 100 years now. During our trip to the Rieth-Riley asphalt plant in Wyoming, we will tour the plant and aggregate stockpiles with Quality Control Manager, Dave Vanderweele.

Dave uses drone technology to survey pits and quarries in order to get accurate measurements on stockpile volumes. He will demonstrate how the drone software works, fly the drone to take measurements, then show us the results from the drone flight.
