Advanced Paving and Construction based in Ogden, Utah, was founded in January, 1991 after several employees of Asphalt Paving Corporation including Wil van der Stappen, a first generation Dutch Immigrant who came to the US as a child, purchased the company from the previous owners. In June of 2013, the final 6 shareholders in the company sold the business to Wil’s son, Bart van der Stappen, with 4 of the previous owners still involved in the day-to-day business. Since its inception, Advanced Paving and Construction has enjoyed an excellent reputation for quality workmanship and construction management expertise.
Advanced Paving performs a broad spectrum of work including paving, concrete, excavation, and a heavy seasonal focus on preventative maintenance for asphalt surfaces, including chip seal and seal coat projects. Over the past few years, Advanced Paving has recognized the benefits of expanded shale lightweight aggregate in chip seal projects, noting that the chips don’t peel off the roads, stay dark in color, and are easy to work with. Understanding these benefits, they have been proactive with recommending lightweight chips to their chip seal customers. General Superintendent Matt Tafoya, who has over 30 years experience in the construction industry, and his crew, always do an excellent job paying attention to detail, which has caused each of these projects to be a success, and resulted in customers (most repeat) who are very pleased with the outcome they receive.
