November Articles – Permeable Pavers and “Mean Green”

by Pavestone on November 30, 2011

Hello Pavestone Fans!

This month we were fortunate enough to publish not one, but two articles! One article was featured in Landscape Architecture and Specifier News, while the other article appeared in Landscape Contractor: Design. Build. Maintain. We’ve included a bit of info about each article below:

Permeable Pavers Transform Walkways and Parking Lots
This project took place in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Our very own Dan Kalar worked with the Ignatius House, a nonprofit and non-denominational retreat centered geared toward helping people maintain their sense of spiritual well-being. The project involved renovations to their parking lot, where concrete was torn out and replaced with our Eco-Venetian permeable pavers. The end result is a water filtration system which reduces pollution and even reduces the effects from uncomfortable heat waves like we experienced this last summer. Dan Kalar worked with Benning Construction and GP Hardscape Pavers, Inc. to help this project come to fruition.

University Interprets ”Mean Green” Literally in Stadium Construction
Pavestone’s Joey Guedea helped with this project, having worked on it with HKS, Inc. and Lindsey White from Caye Cook & Associates Landscape Architects. Together, they helped build the University of North Texas’ football stadium in Denton, Texas. As the home of the Mean Green, this team can now take that name literally; the parking lot was done mostly with Pavestone’s Eco-Priora pavers! The pavers will control storm water impact on the nearby wetland area. Caye Cook & Associates is actually hoping to earn a LEED-Platinum certification on this project – fingers crossed!
