Brownfield Sites

Rehabilitate damaged sites where development is complicated by environmental contamination, reducing pressure on undeveloped land.
  • Accommodate effects of settling or expanding soils
  • Mitigate runoff stress on existing storm drains
  • PICP works in concert with capped sites

Supportive of strategy goals.

Note: ranges of LEED credit points include all specialties (New Construction, etc.) within a given rating system (BDCv3, etc.); highest point total may only apply to certain specialties.

Sites to be rehabilitated can be subject to severe settlement issues. Interlocking concrete pavements (ICP) are excellent at maintaining usability when underlying soils settle, move, or expand. Repairs can be made with original stones reinstalled, reducing cost and material consumption.

PICP can be designed to capture runoff and prevent exfiltration direct to underlining soils, thereby lessening potential water-borne migration of site contaminants. Its detaining and filtering of runoff can mitigate stress on existing storm drain infrastructure.

Proto IITM Post Tensioned Masonry has designs for expansive soils, suitable for rehabilitated sites where post-development settlement is anticipated.
