Meet government standards. Pervious concrete is an open-graded system that allows stormwater to pass through it, allowing it to seep into the ground.
A safer choice. Air circulates beneath pervious concrete, accelerating the melting of snow and ice. Drier pavement also reduces the risk of refreeze.
Easy Care. Parking areas paved with pervious concrete are designed and constructed to last 20 to 40 years only requiring minimal annual maintenance to remove debris.
Save some coin. Parking lot owners that choose pervious spend less money on the labor, construction, and maintenance of detention ponds and other stormwater management systems.
“Our Design Assistance Program helps our clients save time and money. It saves time in the design process and in the specifying process. On top of that, by providing a concrete design that is properly designed it makes us competitive in initial paving cost and then the benefits of concrete in the long-run with lower lifecycle costs.”
