Architects plumb for permeable paving system

Permeable interlocking concrete paving is a prominent landscaping feature at Alchemy Architects’ new office premises in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Permeable interlocking concrete paving (PICP) is a prominent landscaping feature at Alchemy Architects’ new office premises in Edenvale, Johannesburg. Completed in December 2013, the modern three-story building is surrounded by 935 m² of PICP which serves both as driveways and parking areas.

Alchemy Architects’ permeable paving system relied on an infiltration-based PICP design provided by Aveng Manufacturing Infraset, one of the country’s leading PICP suppliers. The manufacturer also supplied Uni-Ecolok, its interlocking paving block system, for the installation of the paved surface.
