This presentation will inspire designers and specifiers to utilize concrete pavers as the best solution for innovative design. Too often, spaces such as plazas, sidewalks, entries, drop-offs, courtyards, and commons, default to less creative options such as scored, poured-in-place concrete. With many important factors to consider when designing spaces, this presentation will illustrate the basic principles of design with photos from projects that have successfully demonstrated innovative concrete paver solutions. Many of these solutions implemented several concrete paver characteristics, such as style, shape, texture, color, and pattern. These characteristics, as well as the technical and functional aspects of a segmental concrete paving system, will be examined. By applying the advantages and flexibility of pavers into a selection process will translate into great design. Includes an emphasis on roof, pedestal paver systems and options which includes natural stone and porcelain tiles.
After completion of this presentation, designers and specifiers will be able to:
- Describe the inception and history of concrete pavers.
- List new paver technology and industry design trends.
- Compare concrete pavers versus other paving systems.
- Utilize ASTM Standard C936 for evaluating concrete pavers.
- Specify proper installation procedures for concrete pavers.
- Devise a method for selecting concrete pavers characteristics such as style, shape, texture, color and pattern.
- Examine LEED criteria for achieving potential credits for using concrete pavers such as solar reflectivity and recycled materials.
