Guide Specification – COMPACTION AND SUBGRADE FOR PERVIOUS CONCRETE PAVING

This sample specification is a companion piece for CNCA’s guide specification for Portland Cement Pervious Concrete Pavement. It is provided as a guide for design professionals. Specific projects will have conditions that may require modifications to this document. It is recommended that the accompanying guide specification “Section 32 13 43 Portland Cement Pervious Concrete Paving” also be referenced. An additional resource from NRMCA entitled Pervious in Practice – PiP1, Guide to Specifying Pervious Concrete can be a helpful guide to designing with pervious concrete.

Guide Specification for Materials and Construction of Jointed Unreinforced Concrete Pavement Parking Lots

Jointed unreinforced concrete parking lots may be designed using various methods; however, NRMCA recommends using the American Concrete Institute (ACI) procedure 330R-08 Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots which specifically addresses the unique loading conditions, durability considerations, and joint layout patterns inherent to parking lots. ACI 330R-08 can be obtained from ACI at www.concrete.org.
