Car parking at schools, universities and hospitals are always limited due to the huge demand at times. Increasingly strict Planning Regulations and Environment Agency controls more often require these educational and public sector premises to provide innovative, engineered reinforced surface solutions which are also SuDS compliant and environmentally sympathetic.

Conventional hard-paved car parking surafces are costly and have become less desirable or acceptable due to surface water run-off management. Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) which attenuate surface water run-off must be considered alongside options such as reinforced gravel and grass surfaces to further limit visual and environmental impact.

A robust cellular permeable paving system is often specified for car parking bays and running access lanes. Interlocking porous plastic pavers provide a surface stabilisation solution that is free-draining and can be designed in conjunction with a SuDS system to manage rainwater run-off. Cellular plastic porous pavers can be filled with selected porous gravel that is retained within the grid cells or can be grassed to blend in with the natural environment to accommodating the increased desire for green surfacing wherever practical.

A grass car park is also a more aesthetic solution for overflow and temporary parking areas providing the same sustainable urban drainage system benefits as a gravel surface.such visitor attractions. With the correct construction a permeable paving grid system can form part of sustainable urban drainage system.

Typical Applications:

ABG supply the following permeable product solutions that are suitable for stabilising grass or gravel car parks:

Sudspave Permeable Paving Grids

Sudspave permeable plastic interlocking pavers are designed for car park applications where a free-draining stabilised surface is desired. The pavers can be filled with a gravel fill or grass finish and are ideal for parking bays. The construction profile allows rainwater to run-through the paver fill, through the permeable sub-base and into the sub-soil. Ideal for access routes and parking bays at schools and hospitals.
