Today in the EcoGrid Blog we’re throwing it back to 2017 (where did that year go?) and a proud moment when EcoGrid was featured on the box! 📺
Yes, if you were watching the BBC Children in Need-themed episode of DIY SOS in November you may have spotted our paving system. Our pals at WysePower donated two pallets of EcoGrid to this most special cause.
DIY SOS headed to Swansea to build a support centre and supported housing for young people in care. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the team completed the build within a tight 11-day schedule, despite heavy rain and storms! The new support centre offers guidance on topics such as finance, cooking, health and employment with the aim of helping to prepare children and young people in care and leaving care for adult life.
And EcoGrid will have come in handy with all of that rain; the team used our grid to create strong, temporary pathways that didn’t suffer from the uneven, muddy and boggy conditions of the ground in the surrounding area. Less stoppages, more time to get the job done!
Wherever it’s installed, The World’s No. 1 Permeable Paving creates a robust surface that’s load bearing up to lorry (HGV) standard, while its porosity ensures rain is able to freely drain and naturally dissipate into the water table.
Check out just a few of the sightings of our permeable paving grid below.
