Choosing the Right Contractor Interlocking concrete pavement systems are best built by professional contractors specializing in segmental pavement construction. They can complete a high-quality job quickly and safely because they have the right equipment, the right materials, and the right skills and knowledge. The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) recommends using ICPI certified concrete paver installers, as well as manufacturers who have ICPI certified concrete paver products. Why is ICPI Certification Important? You’re investing in a low-maintenance, long-lasting pavement. Certified concrete paver installers can help get the job done right the first time and on time. ICPI certified installers are industry professionals who recognize industry standards. Many are ICPI members, so their companies receive technical support and the latest industry information. ICPI certified concrete paver installers learn all of the many details required for concrete paver installation excellence, including soil classification and compaction, bedding and joint sand selection and installation, proper material and labor estimating plus sound business practices. The installer can verify certification for you by presenting a valid certificate from ICPI. Over 18,000 installers have been certified since 1995
