At first glance, Toronto’s Evergreen Brickworks looks as if it has a standard concrete parking lot, but on closer inspection, one can see it is actually a pervious surface. At 4446 m2 (47,856 sf), with 155 parking spaces, this is one of the largest completed projects of its type in Canada.

The pervious concrete was placed using a laser-floor-screed machine (typically employed for larger industrial floor slabs), fitted with a special pervious concrete head. This technology has proven to be extremely effective in achieving a smooth, level, and open surface.
