It will take a hard look at what trends are growing and what areas of landscape construction should be concentrated on. This program will also focus on how to face the construction obstacles by using products that are production, time saving, and profit orientated.
Length: 1 hour AIA Provider Number: J374 AIA Course Code: OC116 AIA Credit: Pending LA CES Course Code: OC116 LA CES Credit: Pending DP PDH: 1 PDH for Engineers* In many urban watersheds regulators are adopting green infrastructure solutions for stormwater management. Retrofitting impervious pavement with materials designed to infiltrate stormwater is one obvious solution. The use of permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) in parking lots and driveways has grown significantly in the last decade. Dozens of publications have demonstrated the runoff and pollutant control benefits these systems provide. However, parking lots and driveways cover relatively small areas within an urban watershed. Some municipalities now recognize that municipal roadways and alleyways can be designed to handle vehicular traffic while also functioning as a stormwater control measure using PICP. This presentation will describe how PICP systems are designed and constructed. Examples will illustrate the keys to properly constructing and maintaining these effective stormwater management systems. An update on the Southeast Atlanta Green Infrastructure Project will be provided highlighting how Atlanta converted six miles of impervious roadway to PICP to reduce flooding and combined sewer overflows. The presentation will conclude with lessons learned related to utilities, roadway slopes, and maintenance.

The concept began to spark interest in 2012 and is continuing to grow in popularity. Outdoor porcelain pavers have the same benefits as regular porcelain –being frost-resistant, skid-resistant, durable and easy to clean – combined with incredibly high breakage loads (up to 2,000 pounds) creates the perfect solution for gardens, terraces and high traffic outdoor areas. Outdoor porcelain pavers can be dry laid onto grass, gravel, dirt and sand – or onto terraces and roofs using raised supports – without grout, adhesives or specialized workers, making installation incredibly easy.

Mechanisms for sedimentation and clogging of PICP joints is discussed along with a review of ASTM C 1781 testing procedures. Total Suspended Solids (TSS) removal efficiencies and current research on variables that contribute to hydraulic performance of PICPs are discussed. The presentation concludes with information on surface infiltration maintenance and restoration methods including a review of available cleaning machines. PICP maintenance costs and inspection checklists are also reviewed.

An overview of the problem with impervious surfaces and the advantages of Low Impact Development, specifically stormwater infiltration practices through pavement surfaces. The presentation addresses designing for hydrological and structural requirements, and reviews required details. The design approach discussed is based on the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute’s PICP design manual. Specifications and maintenance requirements are reviewed along with information on winter performance. Several project case studies illustrate the construction process.

The presentation addresses how pavers can aid in defining themes, character and space through creative patterns, and explains how paver systems work. Site conditions that impact paver performance are highlighted, including issues related to access, safety, specifications, and construction details. Finally, the program concludes with a discussion on sustainability and attributes that pavers offer commercial installations.
