Targeting a wide range of construction professionals, the program offers instruction on implementing pervious concrete pavements as a means to minimize stormwater runoff from building sites and other paved areas, allowing natural filtration to recharge local groundwater supplies. Covered in the seminar will be detailed description of pervious concrete pavement systems, engineering properties, and construction techniques. Civil engineers, architects, landscape architects, and public works officials will learn to design and write specifications for pervious concrete projects, while contractors, product suppliers and land developers will gain useful advice regarding applications and installation techniques.
Program presenters will include two of the following qualified instructors:
- Bruce Ferguson. Franklin Professor of Landscape Architecture, University of Georgia
- Heather Brown, assistant professor, Concrete Industry Management, Middle Tennessee State University
