Anthony Collins – Sales Director, Hardscape

GREEN – A word often overused and overheard but we just love to make things simple and easy to understand. Complex words, phrases and eco-jargon tend to hide the simple facts, important actions, and reasoning, around this key issue.

Hardscape continually endeavours to develop new ways to optimise its processes and practices and specifically, the decarbonisation of materials it offers, whilst giving the designer/specifier optimum aesthetic options of choice, which has become part of Hardscape’s DNA throughout its history.

This position is in full reference to the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change agreement stating the targets that which the world has set itself to achieve.

Hardscape’s contribution can be categorised into two main areas:

Mitigation
Reducing Carbon Emissions – These can be measured in several ways such as cost of emission for a specific product or kg CO2/m2. In construction materials the relevant Standard is BS EN 15804:2012+A1:2013. Stating the unit measure enables comparison and benchmarking against other product offers within the marketplace.

Adaptation
Development of systems and practices that deal with the effects of climate change, for example, permeable paving solutions and robust internal recycling and sustainability procedures.

Green Paving

The cities of the future will need to take account of increasing risks of flooding resulting from global climate change. An increase in paving in urban areas is leading to the existence of so-called urban heat islands; places where sunlight is absorbed more rapidly as well as being preserved longer.

Whenever the lay-out of an urban environment is rearranged, climate adaptation necessitates several simultaneous solutions. It is a huge challenge to realise a spatial layout that is comfortable for its users in all prevailing circumstances, both in normal situations and under extreme weather conditions. Adequate solutions are then called for, e.g., greenery which has a cooling effect and urban spaces including water storage to cope with extreme precipitation.

Local authorities are increasingly having to face the challenge of climate-proofing both for existing and new projects. This means adjusting urban redevelopment to climate change so that residents can live and enjoy recreation safely and comfortably. One of those solutions is to have more greenery within actual paved walkways. Greenery in general, enhances public spaces and makes it more attractive to individuals, retains less heat and has a cooling effect because of water evaporation. In addition, grass pavements ensure, by virtue of its open character, that rainwater can be absorbed into the soil.

Green pavers fit in perfectly with any street scene and they provide extra benefits when it comes to spatial effects, drainage and even traffic signalling. They have grown in popularity from the desire to enable grass growth by using pavers with large recesses. Green pavers have extra-large recesses all round to establish a green street scene without the need to install separate spacers. Filling the openings with tree sand helps to create attractive green scenery which ensures that some of the water evaporates while some of it is absorbed. Whenever a much higher degree of permeability is the decisive factor, stone chippings can be used as a jointing material.

Permeable Paving

The increasing urbanisation of the countryside and changes in rainfall patterns has led to much higher volumes of surface water entering sewerage systems and water courses.

This, in turn, has resulted in higher instances of flooding in city centres, greater expenditure on new sewerage systems and insurance companies increasing premiums on properties built in vulnerable areas. One of the many solutions currently being promoted to help alleviate these problems is permeable paving.

Permeable paving is a range of sustainable materials and techniques for permeable pavements with a base and Sub-base that allows the movement of storm water through the surface. In addition to reducing runoff, this effectively traps suspended solids whilst filtering pollutants from the water.

Hardscape can offer a unique system of Drainjoint which can be used across all types of natural and man-made hard landscape paving materials together with specific conventional pavers in both concrete and clay. Also on offer are Kellen H2O, Ecogranite concrete, ClimaPave concrete and Aquata clay paving products.
