21 • Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute ICPI Foundation for Education and Research The ICPI Foundation for Education and Research continues supporting ICPI in expanding markets for segmental concrete pavement systems. With over $1.6 million in grants since its inception, 2018 ICPI Foundation programs developed life cycle cost tools and comparisons for interlocking concrete pavements (ICP) and permeable interlocking concrete pavements (PICP), assessed the pollution reduction performance of PICP, and helped determine structural performance of slabs and planks under vehicular traffic. ICPI Foundation research is funded by a $5.3 million endowment. The Board of Trustees set a target goal of 5.7% return on the endowment to invest in research. New Project American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Headquarters Low Impact Development Parking Lot Retrofit Demonstration Project This grant provides up to 6,000 square feet of PICP at the entrance and for visitor parking at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) headquarters office building in Reston, VA, owned by the ASCE Foundation. This project will be exposed to several thousand visiting engineer members of ASCE each year, with appropriate signage explaining the benefits of the PICP system. It is part of a larger LID retrofit project for the parking lot surrounding the ASCE’s six-story office building. The ICPI Foundation also will provide a maintenance plan in consultation with ASCE and contribute ASCE headquarters parking lot retrofit demonstration project will replace a decaying asphalt parking lot shown here. to the maintenance costs for a period mutually acceptable to both Foundations. On-going Projects PICP Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA), Tools and Training This project surveys PICP LCCAs, influencing factors, and monetization of PICP on- and off-site benefits. With higher initial costs than conventional pavements, justification for PICP use often requires assessment and inclusion of offsite benefits, e.g., reduced or eliminated stormwater detention facilities making real estate available for development or conservation. The project includes an Excel tool for calculating LCCAs, training materials for ICPI member sales force, and
