3 The Brick Industry Association is a Registered Provider with The American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems. Credit earned on completion of this program will be reported to CES Records for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for non-AIA members are available on request. This program is registered with the AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation.

4 Know the materials and methods used in brick paving systems including a discussion on lifecycle costs and ideas to improve adaptive reuse potential. Identify the various paver types and paving systems best practices. Learn how to select, specify and install these systems to achieve design goals while mitigating the effects on the sites ecosystem. Identify areas in which clay pavers can contribute to sustainable environments through careful material selection and system design.

5 Pioneers in Clay Products

6 OVER 100 YEARS of brick making tradition 50s through the 80s dry-press, face brick, refractory and extruded paving brick From 1993 vacuum dry-press pavers and firebrick continue to be produced at our Alliance, Ohio Plant Many high profile projects have used Whitacre Greer Pavers Centennial Olympic Park, Atlanta, GA Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, D.C. Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, TN Liberty Island, New York

7 Flexibility of size and color Tight dimensional tolerances Pavers are pre-sealed during packaging Resistant to freeze-thaw cycles Custom blending of standard colors at the plant 100+ year history of use Installer friendly

55 Types Type R Type F Applications Application PX Application PS Application PA

56 Classification according to the intended method of installation Type R – Mortar or bituminous set applications, supported by an adequate concrete or asphalt base Type F – Sand set applications with sanded joints, supported by an adequate base

64 Segmental pavers on elevated roof deck with fiberglass grating

65 Compaction Containment Drainage

66 Sand-set, segmental clay paver installations rely on adequately compacted base material to support the pavement under load Compact bases and sub-bases with appropriately sized equipment Include compaction testing in specifications

67 Segmental clay paver installations must be adequately contained to prevent the movement and shifting of pavers under load Review anticipated paver traffic and specify appropriate edge restraints Plastic edge restraints Steel or aluminum edge restraints Set in place concrete or stone edging Poured in place concrete curbing Asphalt is not a appropriate edge restraint for vehicular clay pavements

68 Appropriately specified clay pavers are very durable in freezing climates; poor drainage contributes to premature deterioration of paver systems and efflorescence Slopes of 2-10% minimize standing water and yet are gradual enough to minimize joint sand loss Consider base and sub-base material and local conditions; incorporate drainage into installation specifications

69 Consult the paver manufacturer before using cleaners or sealers Use gently flowing water and a stiff bristle brush to remove dirt Commercial cleaning agents specifically formulated for clay pavers are available for tough stains Avoid removing joint sand while cleaning; replace joint sand as necessary Rock salt and other ice melts will not harm clay pavers; their use may contribute to efflorescence Remove snow with rotary brooms when possible; snow plows and blowers with rubber edges are best; do not use ice scrapers

70 Clay pavers are very durable When installed over a sand setting bed and compacted aggregate base, clay paver systems allow easy access to underground utilities with limited disruption to adjacent areas Clay pavers are easily recycled into new paving projects; the antiqued aesthetic of reclaimed clay pavers is often highly desirable Clay pavers will not fade over time; the color specified today will be the color enjoyed in the future

72 Credits SS 6.1 and 6.2 Stormwater Design: Quality Control Permeable clay pavers reduce runoff and increase on-site infiltration. Credit SS 7.1 Heat Island Effect Non-roof Many clay pavers have a Solar Reflectance Index of 29 or greater. Credits MR 4.1 and 4.2 Recycled Content: 10 and 20% Whitacre Greer pavers have a post-consumer recycled content of up to 6.25% depending on color. Multi-shade Permeable Boardwalk Pavers are produced with 100% pre-consumer recycled material. Credit MR 5.1 and 5.2 Regional Materials: 10 and 20% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Locally The shales and fireclays used in the manufacture of Whitacre Greer pavers are mined in Northeastern Ohio near Alliance, OH and within a 500-mile radius of many major metropolitan areas. *Consult the U.S. Green Building Council for credit details

87 Third-party infiltration testing indicates: Boardwalk Permeable capable of infiltrating 1300 inches/hour 4 x 8 x 2-1/4 Permeable capable of infiltrating 970 inches/hour Even if 99% clogged Boardwalk Permeable and 4 x 8 x 2-1/4 Permeable are capable of infiltrating 13 and 9.7 inches/hour, respectively North Carolina State University study indicates that initial infiltration rates can be as high as 2000 inches/hour. Infiltration rates of clogged systems can be restored with the removal and replacement of joint material

88 Permeable Boardwalk and 4 x 8 x 2-1/4 Permeable are ADA compliant for paver-to-paver joint widths An engineer should be consulted for hydrology and load bearing design considerations

89 Situations where permeable paver systems should not exfiltrate: When distance between permeable pavement and water supply wells, streams and wetlands is less than 100 feet horizontally When depth from bottom of pavement base is less than 2 feet from water supply When used directly over solid rock When used in areas were large quantities of contaminants can directly impact the sub grade or aquifers, such as at gas stations
