FORTA Corporation Sidewalk Addition

Grove City, PA - June 2011

Project Description

After completion of a $1.5 million office expansion project at FORTA Corporation headquarters, a pervious concrete sidewalk was installed directly in front of the new office wing. The use of pervious concrete, containing FORTA-FERRO®, was used over a drainage bed and French drain system allowed designers more latitude for subsequent building and lot landscaping. The 75 ft. long 55 ft. wide sidewalk was only 4″ thick, and continues in front of the building to connect to a previous concrete pad fronting an exterior elevator access door. The fiber showed little evidence at the surface and added considerable stability to the high-void content concrete. In use, the pervious walkway and entry pad handles heavy storm-water considerably faster than even the surrounding landscape bark-beds and natural soils.
