Description
Segmental concrete pavements – interlocking pavers, permeable pavers, grids, and paving slabs – are used widely in landscape and transportation projects. When appropriately designed, constructed and maintained, segmental paving can create vibrant social spaces, manage stormwater, mitigate the urban heat island effect, increase safety, and save on capital and maintenance costs. This webinar presents information to design for and ensure long-term performance of these systems, including design considerations, assembly options, and lessons learned. Using the SITES® rating system as a framework, this session will cover tools to estimate environmental performance, as well as conduct a life-cycle cost analysis.
