Evolution Pervious offers support services to pavement designers, installers, and concrete suppliers to ensure pavement durability and reduced maintenance costs. Pervious pavement is as easy to install as standard concrete if you understand what makes it work and how to avoid common (and potentially expensive) mistakes. We proactively work with suppliers and installers to get them working as a team. Scott Erickson, principal of Evolution Pervious, is an authorized NRMCA pervious technician trainer, who had worked full time with ready mix suppliers, engineers, pavement designers, and pervious installers since 2003.
Working with the installer we will work together to evaluate the project and ensure that every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed. We help you to understand the requirements not only for the specific job, but of future installations:
- Essential installer and supplier qualifications
- How to avoid common, but expensive, mistakes
- Critical site design information: Pavement Appearance Options
- Mockup Requirements: Know what you are getting before you start
- Pervious rule enforcement by qualified onsite supervision.
- Owner’s Manual & Cleaning Guide
- We share with you simple but critical guidelines to avoid common yet potentially costly mistakes.
- Good mix designs
- Critical quality control measures
- Driver/dispatch training
We help concrete suppliers create high quality pervious.
We will let you know if your rock works or find other aggregates to make the best mix.
Controlling the mix variables allows faster unloading, resulting in more loads per day.
Our goal is to make pervious concrete simple and usable for every member of the project team.
We have been involved in hundreds of pervious pours and worked with scores of concrete producers, our team training has made pervious dependable and profitable.
Evolution provides hands-on producer training that includes recognition of proper installation techniques.
Don’t take the blame for a bad pour, use our onsite supervision to ensure the quality of the installation.
Let us be the “heavy” in making sure the contractor follows the rules.
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 original labor estimate
