NRMCA, Pennsylvania Promoters Team Up to Create Pervious Parking Lot
Executive Director Gwen Lacy of The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (TLC), located in Kennett Square, PA, wanted to pave the new parking lot adjacent to the new park along the Red Clay Creek. Working with the conservancy's consultant, McMahon Associates of Exton, PA, they decided that pervious concrete was the best alternative to meet their needs. This area is environmentally sensitive, requiring a design that fits the natural surroundings. McMahon Associates then reached out to NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Ken Justice, for design assistance and advice. Along with his industry colleague Ken Crank of the Pennsylvania Concrete and Aggregates Association, Justice worked closely with the engineer, contractor and local ready mixed concrete producer. The project (shown here) was constructed in September 2017; the TLC had a grand opening and presentation in late November hosted by Justice and Crank, with 20 local organizations in attendance (also seen here).
