A high flood risk car park full of pot holes was in need of resurfacing using a permeable eco-friendly paving system.
Duncan’s is a well-established vet’s practice in Stourbridge. Their car park was a combination of gravel, stone and pot holes, several of which were deep and frequently filled with rainwater.
They chose our eco-friendly paving, Enviropave, to modernise their car park over more traditional methods for three reasons:
1) Cost – our solution was considerably less expensive than concrete or asphalt
2) Water run off – we were told that they were facing a hefty annual charge for water run-off if they chose to use a more traditional form of hard standing.
This no longer applies, as our solution allows water to drain naturally through the pavers.
3) Environmental awareness – our pavers are made from 100% recycled materials
(This Last picture shows the car park four years after completion.)
During a recent visit Darren Duncan told us:
The car park used to flood regularly whenever we had heavy rainfall. Now it doesn’t, and it looks as good as it did when it was done.”
