Dry-Pressed Permeable Clay Pavements

  • Know the materials and methods used in permeable segmental clay brick paving systems including a discussion on life-cycle costs.
  • Identify the advantages and limitations of permeable clay
      pavements and permeable paving systems best practices.
  • Learn how to select, specify and install these systems to achieve design goals while mitigating the effects on the site’s ecosystem.
  • Identify areas in which permeable clay brick pavers can contribute to sustainable environments through careful material selection and system design.

Successful Brick Paver Projects – How to Minimize Construction Problems

  • Evaluate and select the appropriate design and construction techniques required for successful segmental brick paver projects
  • Identify the appropriate materials required for segmental brick paver projects
  • Specify, evaluate and select qualified contractors
  • Summarize the attributes and benefits of clay brick pavers

                    Brick 101: Fired Clay Brick Pavers

                    Manufacturing, Specifications, Varieties, Installation, Uses

  • Learn the definition of a brick and the raw materials that brick are made from– how to distinguish fired clay brick from other types of paving units
  • Learn the different types of brick; explore the various manufacturing processes, and how they impact the finished product.
  • See the manufacturing process in action with video clips of each process used in the industry. Learn what each type offers to the designer.
  • Investigate the specifications which govern brick manufacturing; learn what each section addresses. How do differing brick properties affect my project?
  • Discussion on the distribution of brick; where do I as a specifier find brick for a project? Overview of the history of brick distributors.
  • Study the various installation methods. Discuss how they affect construction. Overview of installation materials for paving brick, what to look for, what to be wary of.
  • In – depth view of installation details; sand- set pavers; mortared pavers; bituminous setting, permeable setting systems
  • See the sizes and shapes of brick pavers currently available in the industry.

                           Accessible Pavements with Brick Pavers 

                            Guidelines and New Testing Protocols

  • Learn the basic regulations that govern accessible surfaces. PROWAG (Public Right of Way Accessibility Guideline)
  • Discuss factors that influence pavement surfaces
  • Discuss the new ASTM E3028-16 (Pavement roughness/smoothness testing method)
  • Review results of pavement testing
