The latest developments in SuDS and concrete block permeable paving are featured in a new Interpave CPD webinar presented by Bob Bray of Robert Bray Associates, SuDS practitioners with over 20-years’ experience.
Following more than 25 years extensive use, concrete block permeable paving has demonstrated unique capabilities as a multifunctional SuDS technology. It combines a structural pavement with water conveyance, attenuation and storage, together with pollution treatment to provide a gradual supply of clean water for amenity and biodiversity.
The new, 30-minute CPD webinar video explores how straightforward flow controls can optimise and expand these capabilities, with techniques including water storage in paving compartments deployed around a site to integrate SuDS within development and to avoid additional land-take.
The webinar is supported by the latest edition of ‘Understanding Permeable Paving and SuDS’, an essential introductory guide to all aspects of concrete block permeable paving for SuDS – and much more. Edition 6 of this guide is now available for designers, developers, planners, regulators and all those involved with development.
One important innovation – explored in the guide and set to play a major role in the post-pandemic public realm – is the retrofitting of concrete block permeable paving as an overlay to existing streets. This low-intervention technique enables transformation of the public realm in response to the raft of recent active travel and open space initiatives.
