Description

The presentation covers historic paving materials and how they can be used in today’s designs. A brief overview of the historic brick manufacturing processes and stone sources are provided. Information is provided on how these products may contribute to LEED & SITES credits. Both historic and modern installation methods of bricks and cobbles are outlined including permeable pavements applications. Options for ADA compliant installations are reviewed. Additional reclaimed materials such as curbing, stone sidewalk slabs, stone building elements and large stone block are also discussed. Samples of materials are circulated to understand the characteristics of the materials.
