Pervious concrete helps amp up environmental responsibility.

Posted on February 12, 2014

Did you know that both the Canadian Green Building Council (CAGBC) and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognize pervious concrete as an environmental best practice?

Pervious concrete allows stormwater runoff and snow melt to pass through. This helps to optimize land use by reducing the need for retention systems, and the treatment of stormwater, while also replenishing natural aquifers and green spaces.

Our new on-demand microwebinar, An environmental best practice: Hydromedia™ Pervious Concrete, outlines the basics of pervious concrete. In four minutes, expert Carlos Midence, Project Manager Sustainable Technologies at Lafarge Canada, will walk you through:

  • How pervious concrete works
  • Physical properties and freeze/thaw performance
  • Design and construction best-practice basics
  • Environmental benefits, including potential LEED® points for your project in the Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency and Innovation in Design Process categories
