Roller-compacted concrete, or RCC, takes its name from the construction method used to build it. It's placed with conventional or high-density asphalt paving equipment, then compacted with rollers. RCC has the strength and performance of conventional concrete with the economy and simplicity of asphalt. Coupled with long service life and minimal maintenance, RCC's low initial cost adds up to economy and value. The need for a low-cost, high-volume material for industrial pavements led to its development. RCC may advantage such as the strength to withstand heavy and specialized loads; the durability to resist long term damage, and the versatility to take on a wide variety of paving applications. From container ports to parking lots, RCC is the right choice for tough duty.
Pervious Concrete is a special type of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flatwork applications that allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass directly through, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing groundwater recharge. Pervious concrete is traditionally used in parking areas, areas with light traffic, residential streets, pedestrian walkways, and greenhouses. The use of Pervious Concrete pavements provides an environmental solution to storm-water runoff and puts rainwater back in the ground where it belongs!
