As our cities expand and new or renovated buildings are opened, it is vitally important to consider the need for emergency access of all areas of the community. Fire truck and emergency vehicle roads are necessary to allow these public health services access during an urgent situation. Although these drive lanes are intended for infrequent use, they must be designed to withstand the heavy loads of operational vehicles.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to incorporate geosynthetic reinforcement, including the GEOWEB® geocells, and rigid porous pavers like the GEOPAVE® Gravel Pavers and GEOBLOCK® Grass Pavers in constructing durable access roads. The discussion will include solutions for an array of applications, including concrete and asphalt support, gravel surface lanes, and vegetated surfaces for hidden emergency access roads.

Additionally, project case studies will highlight the versatility and effectiveness of these technologies. We’ll show how the GEOWEB® geocells can be used in soft soil environments, and in areas with extreme temperature variations, from cold to hot climates. Furthermore, we will explore how the GEOPAVE Gravel Pavers and GEOBLOCK Grass Pavers have been successfully utilized in environmentally sensitive locations, contributing to green building initiatives and sustainable urban development.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of the innovative ways the GEOWEB® geocells can provide permanent stabilization solutions for a regulated building requirement.
  • Learn how the rigid and flexible porous pavements perform under varying infill materials and traffic-loading conditions.
  • Learn about projects using geosynthetic reinforcement in all weather conditions.
  • Get tools and tips for how Presto Geosystems can help complete plan sets, bid packages, and specifying documents.
