Innovative car parking

Most of today’s car parks are made of non-permeable concrete, asphalt or some other unsustainable car park design. This principle has been the standard for car parks for many decades. Nevertheless, these types of car parks bring their own problems with them. This is easily solved with new innovative and sustainable solutions. Some tips for innovative and sustainable parking, Lodige UK.

Grass parking creates an innovative way to park

Grass car parks are a disaster in wet weather. It drags and it brings a lot of mud problems with it. These mud problems can be stabilised with a plastic paving system. With such a special paving system, you make sure that the grass grows through a grid system and that forms an extra reinforcing infrastructure. In this way, car parks can remain green with the grass and provide access for a car. This is a very innovative and sustainable way of parking.

Permeable concrete on your car park ensures better drainage

If you want to make a car park permeable, you can choose between permeable asphalt and permeable concrete. The advantage of this innovative technique is that it ensures better drainage, or in other words the draining of water. Yet permeable concrete also has some disadvantages. It is more expensive, less durable and requires maintenance every 3 to 6 months. Permeable concrete is green for the reason that it provides infiltration when maintenance is required. This ensures that permeable concrete, just like the plastic paving system, has natural filtration of rainwater. It also reduces the run-off of dirty dust particles.

Go for sustainability and innovation with a permeable paving system

If you want to build a sustainable parking garage, you should definitely consider a permeable paving system. This system is superior to all other options on the market. In fact, this system is so good that major companies like Google, the US Army and NASCAR use it for their own car parks. There are three things that make this system special and unique. Firstly, it has a natural filtration of water. This removes pollutants even before there is replenishment of aquifers. Secondly, it has a much greater reduction in CO2 emissions than, for example, asphalt and concrete paving. Finally, the paving stones are produced from 100% post-consumer recycled polyethylene with extra high density. This is an enormously durable material and works for all climates and soils. Even the boxes in which the products are transported are made of 100% recycled material.
