Thomas Concrete

Atlanta, GA - March 2009

Project Description

A pervious concrete slab was placed in late March 2009 outside the Thomas Concrete of Georgia quality control laboratory and offices in Atlanta, GA. The slab was intended as a light traffic pad to use as an example of pervious concrete technology for local owners, contractors and specifiers. The pervious pad entailed 45 cubic yards of concrete, and was placed on a 6″ thick #57 limestone base to facilitate water percolation and run-off. The FORTA® GREEN-NET® made from 100% recycled polypropylene, was used at a dosage of 1.5 lbs. / cu. yd. to add stability during placement and to toughen the resulting hardened pervious concrete. The GREEN-NET® mixed very quickly and uniformly, was not significantly noticeable on the surface finish.

Key Points:

  • Increased Stability
  • Extreme Durability
  • Uniform Mixing
