Located in a woodland setting and bordered with mountains, the new office development had a requirement for a Sustainable Urban Drainage system that would manage surface water run-off on site so that flooding of the surrounding area did not occur.
As a solution to this, Mitchell and Associates specified 4,000 square meters of Kilsaran’s permeable paving, Clima-Pave, for the design of the office car park. This would allow surface water to pass through the oversized joints of the paving and down through a change of aggregates below. These aggregates contain no fines to allow for a 32% void capacity, and this ratio, as well as the use of Coarse Graded Aggregates, allows the water to flow through the system and be cleaned, thereby reducing pollution and the risk of flooding.
This system is very robust and it is designed for one hundred year storms and thirty years climate change. Kilsaran’s Clima-Pave and Signature Paving ranges offered the Landscape Architects Mitchell and Associates a wide choice of sizes, colours, and textures to choose from so that they could achieve a finish that complimented the office building, which was designed by RKD Architects.
