“SuccessCrete” Pervious Concrete is a pervious concrete paving material which permits rain and storm water run off to percolate through. It consists of 4mm to 12mm average diameter aggregates, hydraulic cement, admixtures and some proprietary additives. It is different from conventional concrete in that it contains no fines and is pervious, hence it allows water to drain through and thus avoid ponding of water on its surface.
Pervious Concrete provides a more environmentally friendly hardscape surface by capturing stormwater and reducing the runoff from a site, allowing a gradual groundwater recharge. Pervious Concrete is traditionally used in parking areas, areas with light vehicular traffic, residential streets, pedestrian walkways, driveways and greenhouses. It is fast becoming the material of choice for sustainable and ‘green’ construction projects and is one of many low impact development techniques used by builders to protect water quality. Just like regular concrete, Pervious Concrete is available is a variety of aggregate sizes, colors and can even be stamped.
