  1. 1. The new path to paving Commercial Flexspace Inc.
  2. 2. A brief history of paving <ul><li>In Roman times, the Appian Way (Via Appia) was wide enough to allow vehicles travelling in opposite directions to pass; the surface, paved with basalt and bordered with sidewalks of pounded earth, was about 13 feet wide (the statutory width for main routes at the time when the road was built). </li></ul><ul><li>The first bituminous (asphalt) mixtures produced in the United States were used for sidewalks, crosswalks, and even roads starting in the late 1860s.  </li></ul><ul><li>The first concrete highway constructed in the United States was a 24 mile long, 9 ft wide, 5 in. thick strip of concrete pavement built near Pine Bluff, Arkansas, in 1913—five years after the introduction of the Model T Ford. </li></ul><ul><li>Concrete permeable pavers gained acceptance in the 1980’s followed by plastic “geogrids” and plastic pavers in the 1990’s . </li></ul>

  7. 7. Multiple colors and finishes to complement architectural and landscape design <ul><li>Basic tile colors: </li></ul><ul><li>Basalt </li></ul><ul><li>Granite </li></ul><ul><li>Limestone </li></ul><ul><li>Grass </li></ul><ul><li>Aggregate fill material possibilities: </li></ul><ul><li>Crushed limestone </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled concrete </li></ul><ul><li>Crushed granite </li></ul><ul><li>River rock </li></ul><ul><li>Turf </li></ul><ul><li>Sand </li></ul>
  8. 8. VIA Pervious Paving 2010 Made from 100% recycled plastic Heavy duty permanent parking surface solution for trucks, freight, heavy equipment Thick-walled tiles tested to withstand 115,000 lbs per square foot Unaffected by diesel, salt, UV light Permeable, durable, cost effective, LEEDS credits
  9. 9. VIA vs. Concrete and Asphalt <ul><li>VIA Benefits: </li></ul><ul><li>Via cost per square foot is 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of concrete or asphalt </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates the need for soil stabilization and costly storm drain construction </li></ul><ul><li>Water permeable to keep run-off pollutants out of rivers, lakes and oceans </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces the need for detention/retention pond construction and maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Improves dust abatement </li></ul><ul><li>Conforms easily around existing trees or irregular shapes </li></ul><ul><li>Drawbacks of concrete and asphalt: </li></ul><ul><li>Higher cost </li></ul><ul><li>Not permeable, storm water considerations require additional construction costs </li></ul><ul><li>Heaving/cracking in colder climates </li></ul><ul><li>Asphalt requires sealing, patching, does not conform around trees well </li></ul>
  10. 10. The perfect choice for environmentally sensitive projects.
  11. 11. Case Study - Residential <ul><li>Location: Dripping Springs, TX (Austin Area) </li></ul><ul><li>Problem: Aging asphalt with failure along edges and between trees required replacement </li></ul><ul><li>Considerations: Customer wanted to keep trees but use area for drive/parking. Asphalt and concrete would crack over time or harm trees </li></ul><ul><li>Solution: VIA section between trees creates a long lasting and permeable pathway. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Case Study - Commercial <ul><li>Location: Temple, TX </li></ul><ul><li>Project: 5 acre parking facility for truck/trailer and heavy equipment storage </li></ul><ul><li>Considerations: Customer needed strong, durable surface but wanted to keep construction cost down </li></ul><ul><li>Solution: VIA pervious paving system. Cost per square foot including base material and labor $3.25 </li></ul>
