Case Study – Riverstone

Located in Bracebridge, Ontario, the head office for the Muskoka Conservancy and Riverstone Environmental Solution is a historic facility.

With a focus on creating and protecting nature reserves and as natural environment consultants all the necessary retrofits and renovations to the building were done in a sustainable manner.

In need of a new parking surface, it was only fitting that they gravitate towards a surface that was fully sustainable and ecofriendly.

They were introduced to the Ecoraster permeable paving system by Fowler Construction and immediately knew that Ecoraster would provide them with the perfect solution.

They decided to go with a combination of Ecoraster E50 filled with locally sourced black granite chip and grass as well as the Ecoraster Bloxx permeable interlocking paver system using both concrete and recycled rubber pavers.

Installed by Fowler Construction in June 2017, the parking lot is truly a perfect example of how permeable paving can be incorporated into existing facilities.

Ecoraster is permeable and will ensure that the storm water is managed on site in an effective and efficient manner. The Ecoraster system will remain level, stable and dust free ensuring the surface is universally accessible for the clients and visitors.

As the winter maintenance contractor for this business, Fowler will be closely monitoring this year’s salt & sand usage. They are encouraged by the fact that there could be potential reductions, saving their customer money while protecting the beautiful surrounding ecosystems.
