Opportunities for Permeable Paving
Time & Location
About the Event
This presentation will inspire architects, engineers, landscape architects, developers and municipal agencies to make permeable interlocking concrete pavers the first choice for sustainable, stormwater solutions. Permeable pavers are a recommended Best Management Practice under the EPA's NPDES requirements. They are also a recommended construction practice under Low Impact Development and LEED guidelines in addition to other benefits. Originally, concrete pavers were designed for heavy-duty applications, which make them a perfect and superior solution for streets, roads, parking lots and even plazas and sidewalks. Permeable pavers allow water infiltration between units, not through the paver themselves. This is a huge advantage over other porous materials because paver composite is not changed. There is also an aesthetic quality to pavers because they are made in several different shapes, colors and textures. All of
Mike Zengen of Unilock will be the presenter. Mike has been with Unilock for over 20 years and has helped hundreds of clients to complete numerous prominent projects in the Tri-State area. Mike’s involvement over the years with the CTASLA, NYASLA,ICPI and NCMA has enabled him to keep involved with the Specifier Community and establish himself as a professional resource.
At the end of this program, participants will:
1. Identify benefits and opportunities for permeable pavers.
2. Analyze the goals and criteria for using a permeable pavement system.
3. List permeable paving materials and design different solutions for challenging site constraints.
4. Compare permeable concrete pavers to other traditional storm systems.
5. Utilize ASTM Standard C936 for evaluating permeable pavers.
6. Specify efficient installation procedures for permeable pavers.
7. Examine LEED criteria for achieving potential credits for using concrete pavers, such as stormwater quality and quantity controls, solar reflectivity and recycled materials.
