Permeable Pavers From Unit Paving
Permeable interlocking concrete pavement, also commonly referred to as PICP, is designed to be as porous as possible – allowing storm water to adequately flow into an aggregate base, often creating no puddling or runoff of any kind. While it’s true that this is often associated with a higher cost for both the materials and installation when compared to alternative methods, only Unit Paving offers the unique type of mechanical installation process necessary for reducing costs and shortening project times in one fell swoop.
The team at Unit Paving uses a state-of-the-art array of specialized paver installation machines that not only help increase the quality of the work performed and decrease overall construction times, but also can be used to install pavers in a plethora of designs as well. Indeed, it is this unique equipment that separates us from so many other providers in the area.
Why Permeable Paving is Important
It’s essential for you to understand that ultimately, what you’re talking about is so much more than just another paver. Permeable paving is the key to not only better accommodating pedestrians as they move about already congested (and naturally dangerous) environments, but also in terms of assisting with mission-critical goals like:
- – Controlling storm water runoff
- – Parking control
- – Traffic control and enforcement
Permeable paving has already been used in a wide range of different areas like urban environments that are dealing with a massive lack of space, not to mention wholly inadequate storm water management systems, and the difference that they’ve made already speaks for themselves.
Additionally, permeable pavers bring with them a host of different benefits that are difficult to replicate via other means, including but not limited to ones like:
- – They help reduce flooding, erosion and the contamination of drinking water – particularly during and after extreme weather events.
- – They help to decrease the level of liability associated with sewer flow in terms of CSO systems by directing that flow onto private property during extreme weather events.
- – They can totally eliminate the need for detention ponds, drain systems and similar types of solutions when dealing with soil types A or B.
- – They dramatically reduce urban heat islands, allowing for a much more liberal use of tree canopies.
Within the context of helping to transform areas into the most ecologically friendly environments using sophisticated solutions that are eco-friendly themselves, it’s very clear that permeable paving is only going to get more important as time goes on.
