An efficient way to drain the rain.

Byrne & Jones Construction is leading the way towards sustainability by providing you with pervious concrete pavements. Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to address important environmental issues by capturing storm water and allowing it to seep into the ground.

The material is instrumental in recharging ground water, reducing storm water runoff, and meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations: In fact, the use of porous (or pervious) concrete is among the Best Management Practices (BMPs) recommended by the EPA—and by other agencies and geotechnical engineers across the country—for the management of storm water runoff.

This pavement technology provides more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other storm water management devices. In pervious concrete, carefully controlled amounts of water and cementitious materials are used to create a paste that forms a thick coating around aggregate particles. A pervious concrete mixture contains little or no sand, creating a substantial void content. Using sufficient paste to coat and bind the aggregate particles together creates a system of highly permeable, interconnected voids that drains quickly.

Byrne & Jones Construction is a pervious concrete contractor that has the experienced staff to help you decide if this is a smart solution for your next concrete project and if so, the know-how and the equipment to get the job done right.
