Advantages of Pervious Concrete Topic of Discussion in Virginia
NRMCA Vice President, Local Paving, Philip Kresge recently met with representatives from the Loudoun County (VA) Department of Transportation and Capital Improvement to discuss pervious concrete. The lunch and learn presentation was held in the county’s Leesburg facility and was attended by engineers, architects, project managers and consultants to the county. The program was facilitated by Hessam Nabavi of the Virginia Ready Mixed Concrete Association (VRMCA).
The presentation addressed proper design and specification of pervious concrete, but focused more on assuring durability through proper placement and maintenance. Kresge used the NRMCA’s Pervious Concrete Pavement Maintenance and Operations Guide as the basis of his presentation. Attendees each received a copy of the guide as well as NRMCA’s Pervious In Practice #1: Guide to Specifying Pervious Concrete. Kresge also highlighted three pervious projects within Loudoun County - the Brambleton Fire Station, the Loudoun County Youth Center and the Loudoun County Respite Center – with the objectives of demonstrating the success of pervious concrete and encouraging the designers and specifiers to utilize pervious concrete as their preferred choice for stormwater management.
