In the past, using “green” construction methods or materials meant tacking money onto your budget. Because, while these solutions were undeniably safer for the environment, they often required more time, more effort, and more work, which made them more expensive. However, green construction is growing in popularity these days. The reason why is simple – they’re good for the environment, and becoming more and more affordable.
THE ADVANTAGES OF POROUS PAVING
Porous paving is one of the most obvious examples of a green solution that doesn’t hurt your bottom line. The paving itself is comparable to traditional concrete, with no immediate increase in costs. However, because porous paving allows water to drain through it, it also means there’s no need to build additional ditches, gutters, or spillways to transport that water. Porous paving prevents chemical runoff, as well, and it does this job passively. Perhaps best of all, though, porous paving can be recycled when it reaches the end of its life.
That’s why so many companies are looking into installing porous paving solutions for their car parks, their sidewalks, and in many cases, their roads. Because this paving adds no extra costs, benefits the environment, and eliminates additional construction requirements that would be necessary with more traditional paving solutions.
