Erie Art Museum Parking Lot

Erie, PA - July 2010

Project Description

As part of the LEED silver-level project, the eco-friendly pervious parking lot area was further enhanced with the FORTA® GREEN-NET® fibrillated fiber. The use of pervious pavement allowed for manageable storm water runoff on this slope-challenged project layout and allowed for a more efficient percentage of interior vs. exterior lot usage. The GREEN-NET® fiber length was 1-1/2″, with a dosage of 1.5 lbs. / cu. yd. to add additional pervious concrete toughness under loading and abrasive turning radius delivery areas. Though the fiber length and dosage were greater than conventional fiber usage in traditional pervious applications, placement contractor, Maya Brothers, Inc., experienced no difficulties in mixing, placing, or finishing the three-dimensional fiber reinforcement. Combined with the sustainable use of polished concrete floors within the museum showroom areas, the Erie Art Museum project was the recipient of the 2010 World of Concrete GreenSite Award for Institutional applications.
