Over several years BAPC's David Liguori has worked with Caltrans to update their pervious concrete design guidelines and specifications. Recently, he and Clay Slocum, of the California Nevada Cement Association, were asked by Caltrans District 4 to provide a pervious concrete workshop for their material, pavement, stormwater, and highway engineers.
The three hour workshop provided 28 Caltrans engineers with the latest developments in pervious concrete system design, specifications, and best management practices. Afterwards attendees were bursting with ideas and projects where pervious concrete would help solve their stormwater design issues. They expressed how grateful they were that our presentation was technical, detail-oriented and highly educational, not just a fluffy sales-pitch.
Since this presentation Caltrans engineers have continued the lines of dialogue that began at this workshop, requesting further design and specification consultation for future projects; such as using pervious concrete for highway shoulders.
