This program will provide an overview of how interlocking concrete pavement systems can be applied to commercial projects to enhance the value, performance and pavement life cycle costs. 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.

Learning Objectives: 

  •  Participants will be able to describe how different concrete paver shapes and patterns can be used to enhance a project design.
  •  Participants will learn the fundamental components of an interlocking concrete pavement system.
  •  Participants will understand the site conditions that contribute to paver performance.
  •  Participants will be able to identify sustainable attributes to paver systems and resources available to create designs and specifications.
