Low Impact Development: How Permeable Pavers Improve Projects

to take this course

In this course we explore how Low Impact Development (LID) has several advantages over traditional stormwater management strategies. Our team discusses LID, its goals and principles, and how they are achieved. The course provides an overview of how plastic permeable grid paver systems support LID goals. We review how LID can help reduce environmental impacts and contribute to LEED v4 as well as reduce hazards for site occupants. Finally, our team examines case studies that show how plastic permeable grid paver systems can benefit projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss how Low Impact Development (LID) can help reduce environmental impacts and hazards for site occupants
  2. Review the benefits of sub-base water detention strategies using plastic permeable grid paver systems and how they reduce land use, save money, and provide safe paths for site occupants
  3. Compare permeable pavements in terms of cost, performance, and strength
  4. Describe how plastic permeable grid paver systems may contribute to the LEED ratings system and reduce environmental impacts and improve site occupant comfort
