Master Specifications

Master Specification for Aqua-Bric® and Eco-Stone® Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements
"This guide specification should be edited to fit project conditions and requirements…"

Tech Spec 16
Outlines how to earn LEED credits using interlocking concrete pavers, permeable interlocking concrete pavers, concrete grid pavers, and precast concrete paving slabs.

Achieving LEED® Credits with Segmental Concrete Pavements - Part 1
LEED® establishes a consensus-based means for measuring building and site performance by promoting designs that integrate energy and resource conservation.

Achieving LEED® Credits with Segmental Concrete Pavements - Part 2
Besides earning points for stormwater and pollutant reduction, permeable interlocking concrete (or interlocking concrete) pavements can help earn another point for their low reflectivity (low albedo), light-colored surface.

Summary of LEED Credits
Points earned using segmental concrete pavement.

Guides & Research Summaries

Eco-Stone® for Stormwater Remediation - Executive Summary
"As cities experience growth and land is developed, the impervious surface of buildings, asphalt and concrete pavements become major contributors to storm water runoff…"

Eco-Stone PICP Design Guide & Research Summary
The information included in this report is intended to provide guidance and recommendations for the design and construction of UNI Eco-Stone® interlocking concrete permeable pavements.

North Carolina State University Evaluates Permeable Pavements
"The project evaluates runoff from four types of permeable pavement and asphalt. Preliminary results show substantial runoff volume and peak flow reductions."

Cold Climate Performance of Permeable Pavers
"The four year study of parking lot runoff assesses PICP’s long-term performance including the migration and treatment of runoff pollutants through the soil subgrade."

Role of Joint Filling Materials in Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements
More than any other factor in PICP, the permeability of joint filling material is key to long-term surface infiltration performance

Tech Spec 8
Well-illustrated guide on the design and construction of concrete grid pavements over dense-graded bases for stormwater control. Includes guide construction specification.

Rollings Memo
The two most common methods of estimating rainfall runoff and flows are the old "Rational" method and the newer Soil Conservation Service Method.
