Ideker, Inc. received the Silver Award for Reliever & General Aviation Airports division. Per a December 18, 2015 press release from ACPA:
"In 2009, the City of Sedalia, Mo., applied for and received
a state grant for the reconstruction of 5,000 feet of Runway 18-36. Bids for
the project were received in May 2013. The contractor began construction on the
5,000 foot long, 100 foot wide runway on June 28, 2014.

The new pavement
section was 8 in. of concrete on 6 in. of recycled concrete base on 12 in. of
limetreated subgrade. Two short sections of connecting taxiway were also
reconstructed and tied in to the existing pavement. The runway reconstruction
allowed the airport to increase its runway approach category from Category BII
to CII. This upgraded approach category will enable the airport to
service corporate jet traffic—a potentially important economic benefit for the
region. The concrete paving of the runway was completed in just 4 days—an average
placement of 3,086 cubic yards per day."
