Seminar: Adelaide’s reactive clays have long been a perceived barrier to permeable paving and infiltration systems.

The City of Mitcham will demonstrate how collaboration between Council’s engineering and horticultural teams is delivering benefits to the natural environment and civil assets via a range of projects incorporating permeable paving and infiltration systems. Russell King will impart his knowledge on how to avoid common mistakes when constructing permeable paving systems and describe how a recent project eliminated the need for major stormwater asset upgrades. Dr Tim Johnson will present data from PhD thesis, Trees, stormwater, soil, and civil infrastructure: Synergies towards sustainable urban design, that tackles myths about trees, soil movement and the use of permeable paving.

Oxigen developed the landscape design for the Adelaide Oval Fig Tree Plaza project that applied permeable pavers and raingardens to this iconic site. Alex Game will take us on a journey that explores the design constraints presented by the historic fig trees through to the construction phase techniques that offer a model for the Adelaide landscape and civil design industries.

Exhibition & site tour: The event provides an opportunity to meet with the suppliers of a range of permeable and porous paving products over morning tea, followed by a site tour of some of the City of Mitcham’s landscape and civil works projects including: Permeable paved roads, carparks and footpaths; and infiltration and bioretention systems.
