The NRMCA Pervious Concrete Promotion Subcommittee meeting will be held Wednesday, October 3, in Las Vegas. Senior Director of National Resources and subcommittee staff liaison Phil Kresge said that this year’s meeting is being held in conjunction with the 2012 Bunyan Pervious Roast, October 2-4. In prior years, the subcommittee meeting has been held during NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks Conference & Expo. By holding the meeting in conjunction with Bunyan’s annual workshop, NRMCA hopes to involve more of the industry’s pervious concrete experts.

"In the past, the Bunyan Pervious Roast has been a gathering of the pervious concrete ‘brain trust,’ with most of the industry’s leading professionals attending," Kresge said. "We thought it would be a good opportunity to involve some of these folks that might not have come to the subcommittee meeting at a different venue."

For those unfamiliar with the Pervious Roast, it is a three-day workshop focusing on new technology and on "pushing the limits" of pervious concrete. According to Dave Mitchell of Bunyan Industries and host of the event, "the Bunyan Pervious Roast offers a broad spectrum of topics which are outside the official, established and recommended practices for method as well as for materials testing. The evolution of pervious is at hand and it happens in small groups, on subjects that we face every day that we design, produce and construct this pavement.  The realities of our limits and the encouragement of better practices are found in these little breakout groups."

The Pervious Concrete Promotion Subcommittee is focused on moving the market forward for pervious concrete. "The subcommittee meetings provide a networking opportunity for industry promoters to share their experiences, successes and frustrations,"  Kresge added. 

The subcommittee meeting is open to all NRMCA members and invited guests. Specifics of meeting location and agenda will be announced once they are confirmed. For more information, contact Phil Kresge at
