PERMEABLE INTERLOCKING CONCRETE PAVEMENT (PICP)


Main StreetPermeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement were introduced into North America in the 90’s. Since that time PICP has gained acceptance in Canada and U.S. Intended for storm-water runoff reduction, solid concrete pavers are placed over a bedding course of highly permeable open-aggregate aggregate. The joints are filled with open-graded aggregate making the surface 100% permeable. The pavers and bedding layer are placed over an open-graded base and subbase which create a reservoir for stormwater storage and infiltration. PICP’s ability to reduce or eliminate stormwater runoff, even in intense rain events, also reduces pollution. PICP is intended for parking lots and low volume streets.

Design Professionals choose concrete pavers for:

  • Rapid construction using mechanical installation equipment
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Fast surface reinstatement after underground utility repairs
  • Traffic calming and increased safety
  • Upscale visual appeal
  • Runoff and pollutant reduction with PICP
