  • This presentation will inspire designers and specifiers to utilizing 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.

  • A symposium that educates landscape architects on sustainable paving solutions for cities, communities, and campuses. Dr. William F. Hunt, III, PHD, PE from North Carolina State University will be discussing permeable paving benefits and opportunities. This symposium will highlight recent local projects successes using permeable paving to meet these new green infrastructure requirements while illustrating how they can still be functional and aesthetically pleasing. Several case studies will be examined and discussed.
