Pervious Pads Control Runoff at BMW Showroom
A new BMW dealership in Glendale, Wisconsin is associating the luxury car with the latest in environmental technology.
Consistent with the dealership’s cutting edge environmental theme, the display vechicles sit on tencircular pads made with pervious concrete. The pads, along with the adjoining curved walkways, help manage storm water runoff and eliminate the need for retaining ponds.
Flexible-style Poly Meta Forms® were used to construct thepads and walks. Their ability to quickly form circular shapesmade the job easier than using wood.
Removing the forms was also a snap according to Mike Kies, concrete finishing superintendent for the Jensen Group.
Kies says, “You just pull the pins and pull the forms off. It’s faster and easier than pulling nails from wood forms andthey’re lighter than 2 x 4’s.”View All Field Reports
