When an architect designs a building or space with a high circulation of vehicles and people, it is important to think about the paving that will be part of the space. Asphalt, the main resource used, has numerous environmental impacts, from production to day-to-day use.
Obtained through petroleum, a non-renewable source, traditional asphalt has low permeability, which can cause accumulation of water and damage to the soil. Furthermore, the compounds used in production are toxic and polluting, causing contamination, flooding, and possible damage to health.
Sustainable solutions can help reduce the environmental impact of pavements. Ecological asphalt is an alternative to make paving less harmful to the environment.
State-of-the-art technologies, biodegradable materials, and integrated projects can result in intelligent works that are integrated with the environment. In the long run, this adds value and esteem to the project.
A great advantage of ecological paving, which can be done with interlocking floors, is that it allows the water to be easily filtered, preventing the site from being a focus of floods or floods. In urban areas, this concern is essential to avoid accidents.
To build sustainable buildings and spaces, combining strategies and materials throughout the entire process and paving can make all the difference. Do you want to join the idea for your project? Contact Green Studio!
