Come and visit Hanson Formpave at Ecobuild


Visit Hanson Formpave on stand N6077 to see how its permeable paving and sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) can help alleviate the risk of flooding and comply with planning regulations.

The concept behind SUDS is to help prevent flooding by replicating natural systems and processes to drain surface water run-off in a controlled way. Hanson Formpave’s Aquaflow SUDS allows water to drain through the permeable paving blocks and upper filter layer, which cleans the water before being stored within the sub base for release back into the environment. The Aquaflow system is also more cost-effective as, unlike other SUDS, it only requires builders to dig to a depth of 480 millimetres, saving valuable time and money.

As well as Aquaflow, Formpave also offers a large range of block paving – from its EcoGranite range, which contains up to 77 per cent recycled content, to Chartres, which was inspired by the beautiful medieval city of Chartres in France.SUDS diagram 1

Hanson Formpave’s head of design, John Lloyd said: “We are committed to working with specifiers, developers and contractors to help them find the perfect paving solution and look forward to showcasing our range at Ecobuild.

“We offer a comprehensive free design service which includes technical and professional advice, preparation of draft proposals and validation of the clients’ own designs. All designs that have been provided, or approved, by Formpave are covered by our professional indemnity insurance and benefit from the company’s 16 years’ experience in designing permeable paving systems. “
