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.

Dr Nick Gorst will be speaking in the following theatres:
