Dr Nick Gorst
Nick is a Chartered Civil Engineer specialising in concrete technology and geotechnical engineering. His PhD investigated the mechanical performance and impact resistance of concretes, including lightweight polymer mortars. He has wide experience in civil engineering for road, rail, flood defence and building schemes. Nick was heavily involved in the production of the seventh edition of the Interpave document ‘Design & Construction of Concrete Block Permeable Pavements.’
Looking Forward with Permeable Paving and SuDS
Meeting regulatory requirements for SuDS on applications ranging from hard landscape to heavy industrial areas, concrete block permeable paving is now firmly established as a key SuDS technique. This presentation will demonstrate its successful long-term performance with minimal maintenance, following more than 20 years use. Permeable paving for SuDS continues to develop and the latest innovations and applications will also be explored.
