The award-winning construction of the Richmond Ikea Relocation Project in Canada used one of the largest amounts of pervious concrete in the area. "The benefit of this kind of concrete is that it allows water to permeate back into the native soil," said Kyle Gilmour, product development and quality control manager at Ocean Concrete, which won a regional construction award for its work on the project. "It therefore lessens the impact on a municipality's treatment plant."
