2018 Annual Report • 12 n n Inspection of Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP) Systems— Well-executed PICP projects require diligent inspection and this course establishes the minimum requirements. It addresses preconstruction meeting details, requirements for submittals, and site inspection points from project start to completion. Various testing methods and inspection criteria are presented while stressing the importance of having an ICPI-trained contractor on the job site. Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP) Maintenance— PICP plays a vital role in the restoration of natural hydrologic processes in urbanized areas because it traps stormwater where it falls and slowly infiltrates it into the ground. PICP is considered a best management practice by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is used to comply with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System regulations. But in order to be effective, PICP must be properly and regularly maintained. This course addresses inspection points, test methods, equipment, repairs and reinstatement to ensure PICP consistently contributes to green infrastructure and stormwater management goals. ICPI Teams with Land8 Landscape Architects Network to Make PaveShare.org Curriculum Available Free to Students and Educators Across the U.S. and Canada PaveShare.org, a free, open-education curriculum and design idea resource for landscape architecture students and educators, is now available through the Land8 Landscape Architects Network. PaveShare.org, links to self-guided presentations with interactive animations and a studio project library on segmental concrete pavement design and construction. Educators can supplement existing curriculum with resources from PaveShare.org and encourage students to add to a living library by uploading their completed projects to the site. Students and educators can also explore pattern design and structural principles or utilize a curriculum path. “Segmental concrete pavement systems provide landscape architects with a proven, flexible, and durable method that also allows tremendous design freedom,” said Kendall Anderegg, ICPI Chair. “By teaming with the Land8 network, ICPI brings innovative design ideas and technical information to landscape architecture students and educators in a free, easy-to-use manner.” PaveShare.org resources include: n Information about concrete paver composition and applications n Project design ideas, design studio briefs, and case studies n Construction and installation best practices and detail drawings n Glossary of key terms n List of resources available from other organizations
