Interpave will be hosting a talk by SuDS guru Bob Bray at Vision London, exploring innovative applications of permeable paving to optimise costs and land use

In association with

Interpave will be hosting a presentation by Bob Bray on Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) at this year's Vision event in London. 'The role of permeable paving in SuDS, an urban landscape with water' will address the latest thinking on SuDS in urban design, now that SuDS are a planning requirement. Bob Bray is founder of leading SuDS project designers Robert Bray Associates and has written numerous local authority guidance documents and articles. Bray also regularly lectures on the subject. 

In particular, the presentation will cover innovative approaches to the use of concrete block permeable paving as an integrated, multi-functional SuDS technique, including demonstrable water storage using flow controls, minimising the need for additional storage features. The amenity and biodiversity possibilities of a gradual supply of clean water in the landscape for urban design will also be explored.
