Pervious Concrete

Pervious concrete is a special type of concrete with a high porocity used for concrete flat work. It allows water to pass through for drainage, yet it maintains it's strength. Possible uses include pedestrian walkways, parking lots, drainage structures and lakeside homes.

Pervious Concrete Technology Also known as no-fines or low fines concrete, pervious concrete is a mix of portland cement, coarse aggregate, water and admixtures. Because there is little or no sand in the mix, the pore structure contains many voids that allow water and air to pass through.

Pervious Concrete Advantage New federally mandated storm water management regulations are in effect making pervious concrete systems a viable solution. While EPA recognizes pervious concrete as a Best Management Practice (BMP), building owners are realizing better land utilization and LEED credits with pervious concrete parking lots. Pervious concrete applications can be used as an alternative to complex drainage systems and water retention areas reducing storm water runoff.

Applications

  • Parking lots
  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks/walkways
  • Streets/road shoulders
  • Other light traffic areas

American Concrete Institute Certified Concrete Contractors

ACI Concrete Flatwork Certification Program

County Materials is a strong advocate for continuing education and a leader in providing industry resources and education for our customers.

The ACI began the Concrete Flatwork Finisher/Technician certification program in 1987 to provide a basis for certifying concrete finishers and improve the quality of concrete construction. More project owners and construction professionals specify that contractors have ACI-certified flatwork finishers onsite performing the work; they recognize the value of using ACI-certified finishers and technicians. ACI recertification is necessary every five years, and requires successful completion of a written examination. More information about the ACI Concrete Flatwork Certification Program is available at:
