‘Sustainability is here to stay in Infrastructure. It is no longer a nice to have, it is a must-have’ stated Paul Davies, General Manager of Market Capability at Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).
Mr. Davies presented at the Engineers Australia ‘Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series on Permeable Paving and Design’, alongside Professor Simon Beecham, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Innovation at the University of South Australia.
This seminar series which was in association with Austral Masonry, took place in March 2019, with an aim to educate participants on the importance of sustainable practices in infrastructure and, more specifically the current permeable paving technologies that are available to the industry, such as DesignPave.
Permeable Paving has the potential to reduce drainage infrastructure, improve water quality and reuse, and minimises the potential for flooding.
‘My key interest in the infrastructure sector is to encourage people to consider and where possible use, more sustainable products, processes and services, in a landscape where there are more demands for both sustainability and corporate social responsibility in how infrastructure is being defined in society’, Davies continued.
