New York City Architects Learn About Pervious Concrete

NRMCA Senior Director, National Resources, Phil Kresge recently presented "Designing and Specifying Pervious Concrete" at a lunch and learn seminar in the New York City offices of Weiss/Manfredi Architecture. The presentation request came through NRMCA’s pervious concrete Web site and was originally fielded by Kresge's colleague, Senior National Resource Director Doug O’Neill. The program was well received by the 25 architects in attendance and Kresge answered several questions regarding subgrade preparation, hydrologic design and maintenance.

Following the presentation, Kresge met with one of the Weiss/Manfredi design teams to discuss the specifics of a project on which it is looking to incorporate pervious concrete. He recommended where the application would be best suited on the site. Kresge then offered to meet with the project’s civil engineer and offered NRMCA’s Design Assistance Program for this and any other projects Weiss/Manfredi is planning.
