Pervious Concrete:
Bruce Ferguson has made presentations on Pervious Concrete Pavement at seminars in Charlotte arranged by Estes Design.
  • Bruce Ferguson - Porous Pavement

  • Estes Design - Piedmont Applications of Porous Pavement
  • Bruce Ferguson has nationally-renowned knowledge and experience in storm water infiltration. He is Professor of Landscape Architecture and Director of the School of Environmental Design at the University of Georgia. He is a landscape architect who has specialized in environmental management of urban watersheds.

    Ferguson recently completed the first comprehensive guide to porous pavements; a new technology, which he says, is “potentially the biggest development in urban watersheds since the invention of the automobile.” Porous Pavements was released by CRC Press in early 2005. For his research, Ferguson surveyed 280 installations of all kinds of porous pavements, in all parts of North America.
