With more than 25 years’ use on a wide range of project typologies, including adopted roads and even container terminals, concrete block permeable paving (CBPP) has proven to be a robust, resilient and adaptable technology. This long experience also gives a greater understanding of the capabilities of CBPP, revealing that it performs far better than originally anticipated with important potential for even more applications and innovations
Precast concrete paving meets today’s Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) ethos with fully engineered, prefabricated, modular products. The use of mechanised on- and off-site processes linked to good design will enhance MMC benefits, improve the end result and optimise safety as well as efficiency.
