Mission Statement: To reduce the use of traditional hard paving and the impact is has on the environment

Right from the initial phone call, professional staff will guide you through the installation process and find the right product for your job.
Martin Cook, director of WaterPave, created the business in 2012 when he discovered a major void in the building industry for quality-made, fit for purpose permeable concrete paving. As a registered builder, Martin undertook several property development projects, and on numerous occasions was faced with the council requirement for a permeable driveway system due to large trees on or neighbouring his development sites. Unsatisfied with the available options, “no-fines” and single unit pavers he decided to research the industry and develop his own permeable concrete paving systems. DriveCon® was born.
ABOUT PERMEABLE PAVING
Our DriveCon® permeable concrete paving has been designed and engineered to reduce the impact on the environment hard impervious surfaces such as ready mix concrete and asphalt have. Stormwater enters our waterways (creeks and rivers) largely untreated via traditional paving methods such as concrete and asphalt. This stormwater not only carries harmful toxins from our roads damaging wildlife and our ecosystem along the way it also contributes to flash flooding. The unique design of our DriveCon® permeable concrete paving provides a hard solid paving slab that allows the stormwater to be absorbed at the source, removing 99% of the harmful toxins and drastically reducing the effects of flooding. The water passes through the matrix of the slab and returns the clean water back into the ground below and recharging the water table. Permeable concrete also plays a significant role in reducing the “Heat Island Effect” which contributes to the heating of the earth.
Our permeable concrete paving systems are suitable for residential or commercial applications as well as council civil projects, permeable (or pervious) paving is a durable and versatile alternative to traditional hard surface techniques like concrete and asphalt while also having the added benefit of an attractive overall appearance.
