The Louisiana Army National Guard worked with HMS Architects and Bomanite of New Orleans to select the paving system for thier parking lot. The Grasscrete System was selected for the project due to it’s LEED characteristics and structural Load capacity. Grasscrete has a load bearing capacity of up to 114,000 lbs.
Grasscrete Molded Pulp Formers were utilized for this project providing sustainability with their 100% recycled content and ability to degrade over time into the sub-soils. The selection of a Grasscrete System is one of the easiest ways to achieve LEED points due to the reduction in heat island effect, management of storm water runoff, recycled content used in the application process as well as the concrete and sub-base, the long lifespan and the low maintenance required. Grasscrete Systems are highly sustainable with a very low life-cycle cost and the ability to be completely recycled and used in a future project.
