BODPAVE ™85 & T1000
Quantum Property Partnership required a high environmental standard of build for new development, Spark One-a hub for science and technology businesses in the Bristol and Bath region. The environmental criteria included the requirement for a SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) car park for 200 vehicles.
BODPAVE 85, was specified to provide the SuDS source control car park. BODPAVE 85 Porous Paving Grids were laid onto a free-draining base, and filled with an angular gravel or grass finish. They are made from recycled plastic and can support loads of up to 400t/m2 (when gravel filled). The design of BODPAVE 85 pavers allows them to positively interlock with each other, making installation simple and providing resistance against shear and lateral movement.
TERRAM T1000 Standard Geotextile was also used to provide permeable separation.
