NRMCA Producer member Preferred Materials recently supplied pervious concrete for a new 27.3 acre parking lot for Sarasota County in Siesta Key Beach, FL, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resource, Amy Miller. Being named the #1 beach in the United States by "Dr. Beach," the new pervious parking lot (shown below) was constructed to maximize usage of land and eliminate detention area.

The job consisted of placement of over 6,000 yards of pervious in two phases over an 8-month time frame, Miller said. The project was designed by Kimley-horn and constructed by NRMCA certified pervious contractor Curb Systems of Southwest Florida.

"Sarasota county has a great parking area and the natural water detention in the pervious to control stormwater runoff. Sarasota county considers this project a major success and is moving forward with more pervious in different areas of the county," stated Ross Allen, quality control manager of Preferred Materials.
