Hydromedia™ for effective rainwater management
Hydromedia™ για την αποτελεσματική διαχείριση βρόχινου νερού

Built on a slope, the parking lot of a new shopping mall in Thessaloniki, Greece, had to ensure the safety of both pedestrians and car drivers by avoiding standing water in heavy rain.

 

A drainage system, the first solution envisaged, proved to be too expensive. The site managers therefore opted for surfacing the parking lot with HydromediaTM pervious concrete.

 

The system acts as a buffer in heavy rain, thanks to a concrete slab poured onto a sub-base of coarse aggregates. The aggregates avoid overloading the drainage network and filter the sediments and solid particles carried by the rainwater. The concrete is strong enough to bear the weight of 8-tonne delivery trucks.
