Designing Permeable Pavements for Heavy Loads & Lower Costs


Sponsored by: Belgard Hardscapes

Permeable interlocking concrete pavers (PICP) have been performing in North Americafor well over 25 years. And when designed right…can support your heavy traffic loads, mitigate your stormwater, AND keep your costs low.

Join Chuck Taylor and Kevin Earley as we explore Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement systems (e.g., components, design principles, benefits, etc.), and how you can successfully design, implement, and maintain your PICP systems to improve your stormwater runoff management, handle your heavy traffic loads, AND reduce your total lifecycle costs.

In this presentation, we'll start with a look at permeable interlocking concrete pavement systems, including: key components, design criteria, benefits, and implementation best practices. We'll then outline PCIP performance criteria and recommended maintenance, and how you can determine these for your project. Taylor and Earley will walk us through budget analysis and how you can use this during project design/development to determine the PICP lifecycle cost advantages. Finally, we'll tour real-world examples of commercial and industrial PICP projects and their results (e.g., heavy load durability, lifecycle cost benefits, etc.), and how you can put these to practice at your site.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand performance & maintenance criteria recommended for PICP systems.
  • Learn to determine cost comparisons between permeable pavement and conventional impermeable rigid and flexible pavement design.
  • Learn the cost variables related to a lifecycle cost analysis for permeable pavements.
  • Understand the benefits of using permeable interlocking concrete pavement.
