Welcome to Interpave, the trade association and essential resource for precast concrete paving in the UK. Here, you will find the definitive information on concrete block and flag paving, permeable pavements and SUDS, kerbs and related products.
Interpave aims to provide the latest guidance on all aspects of the paved environment for the widest audience. To begin with, choose from websites focusing on either commercial applications, ranging from hard landscaping to heavy duty pavements, or domestic situations including drives, patios and other paving around the home.
Precast concrete paving continues to develop in terms of technology, visual characteristics, design opportunities and applications. Interpave’s commercial site is organised to help you find the right type and level of detail of information to meet your particular needs.
News items highlight the latest legislative and other changes, reinforced by Interpave’s digital magazine e:Pave. Topical issues – such as sustainable drainage, masterplanning and sustainability - of interest to a particularly wide variety of property and design professionals are discussed in downloadable brochures. At a more detailed technical level, Interpave’s Design and Construction Information Documents - or DACIs - provide the most up-to-date and authoritative information resource for the industry.
Interpave’s new, dedicated domestic website offers inspiration and guidance on the paving which is essential to creating and enjoying a beautiful garden. It covers all the issues you need to consider when choosing and designing paving, as well as help finding manufacturers and installers, and guidance for DIY enthusiasts.
But it also helps homeowners - as well as planners, surveyors, conveyancing lawyers, designers and landscapers - to understand new paving rules designed to help in the fight against flooding and pollution. Failing to meet these new rules could result in action by your local authority or make selling your home more difficult.
