White Hill Middle School - A Revisit

Back in 2013 Bay Area Pervious Concrete was hired to install some BAPC Polished Pervious Concrete™ on the newly expanded campus of White Hill Middle School in Fairfax, CA. The project's site designs were done by our friends at Sherwood Engineers. Recently, a group of Sherwood Engineers project managers took a tour of the school to review how the site improvements fared after five years of use. They were kind enough to share some photos with us.

Our friend was happy to report that the pervious concrete still looked great and was performing well. The school appeared to be very happy with the site improvements, and it showed! The pervious concrete had been maintained, kept clean, and looked as good as the day we polished it.

White Hill Middle School Gets a Brand New Courtyard

White Hill Middle School up in Marin County is the first school to put in polished pervious concrete! WRNS Studio designed it in the main courtyard area between classrooms as well the shaded amphitheater style steps, shown below.

The finishing touches were just getting completed as teachers were prepping classrooms in anticipation of classes starting. It was very exciting!


We were able to get this fantastic design installed with the help of a dedicated team of design professionals. Joel Williams and Pauline Souza from WRNS Studios were invaluable as design advocates for pervious concrete from the beginning of the project. Mike Hastings, from Sherwood Engineering, was the civil on the project, and his collaboration and cooperation on the technical aspects enabled us keep momentum going. We look forward to working with both of these firms in the future, for more pervious concrete projects!!

And here is our favorite shot - a close up of the nice tidy finish, and the subtle color variations in the polished finish the school administrators were looking for.
