The trade association Interpave has just launched its new hard landscape, commercial precast concrete paving and SuDS resource website www.paving.org.uk for architects, urban designers, engineers and other specifiers.
Representing major UK manufacturers, Interpave promotes and develops precast concrete paving as a modern, flexible and sustainable technology for applications ranging from hard landscape to the heaviest-duty commercial pavements. Concrete block paving, flags, kerbs and related products play a key role in urban design, public realm and the spaces around and between buildings. In particular, concrete block permeable paving is the most versatile, multifunctional solution to meet Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) requirements.
The new website provides an essential resource covering all aspects of design with precast concrete products, including an inspirational project gallery and case studies, supported by background information for initial design as well as CPD. A comprehensive series of technical documents covering all types of precast concrete paving provide the definitive source of guidance for specifiers and contractors – including detailing, construction and maintenance.
Over the coming weeks, several new Interpave technical and educational documents will be launched and specifiers can register on the website to be kept up-to-date with the latest publications and projects.
