By capturing stormwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff, and meeting Environmental Protection Agency stormwater regulations. This pavement technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other stormwater management devices. In doing so, pervious concrete has the ability to lower overall project costs.
Pervious Concrete is a mix of coarse aggregate, cement, water and little or no sand. Also known as “no-fines” or porous concrete, this mixture creates an open-cell structure, allowing rainwater to filter through to underlying soil. By modeling natural ground cover, pervious concrete is an excellent choice for stormwater management.
Pirate Concrete has installed over 800,000 square feet of pervious concrete over the past 8 years and 3 of the largest parking lots in Wilmington. We have 2 different levels of certification and are constantly staying up to date with the evolution of this product.
