Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Phil Kresge recently met with civil and geotechnical engineers from the Atlantic Division of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) in Norfolk, VA. Kresge spoke to the group about designing and specifying pervious concrete. He also took the time to review the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications' (UFGS) pervious concrete pavement specification that is currently in place. The meeting was organized by the Hampton Roads Regional Council of the Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (VRMCA) and was facilitated by Jim Simons, vice president of sales for NRMCA Producer member Capital Concrete.

The UFGS pervious concrete specification was developed by NAVFAC, with assistance from NRMCA, for use in specifying construction for the military services. The unified spec eliminates the redundancy of multiple specifications from different branches of the Department of Defense. The UFGS pervious specification is currently used by NAVFAC, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
