Evolution offers support services to pavement designers, installers, and concrete suppliers to ensure pavement durability and reduced maintenance costs. Pervious pavement is easier to install than standard concrete if you understand what makes it work and how to avoid common (but expensive) mistakes. We proactively work with suppliers and installers to get them working as a team.

Case Study, Powell, Wyoming 2010.
Task: Educate project team with no pervious background
Project: Powell Community Swimming Facility: Pervious Parking Lot Specified
With no experience in pervious and only horror stories of failed installations, the local installers and concrete suppliers bid extremely high. As the pervious consultant on the job, Evolution Pervious designed a mix from local aggregate and walked the supplier through the process. With an understanding of pervious and the differences between traditional concrete, the supplier amended the bid by over $85,000. Evolution then trained the installation crew on pervious application. The estimated 21 days of installation was complete in less than 7 working days. Evolution encouraged the teamwork between the supplier and the pervious contractor to help them create a beautiful and durable stream safe pavement.
- The city saved $85,000 on the price of the pervious concrete
- The concrete supplier made a great profit and a great product
- The installer saved 66% of the labor estimate
