Sunway unveils water-permeable pavers

Jul 04, 2012

Sunway Paving Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sunway Bhd, has launched NeuPave, a new paving solution for the
construction industry that utilises the latest concrete technology.

Sunway Bhd Sunway Berhad's Group President Datuk Chew Chee Kin said the product is an important development, particularly for equatorial countries with heavy rainfall.

"The introduction of the technologically advanced NeuPave brand strengthens the synergistic benefits between Sunway Bhd's property and construction core businesses, allowing us to cater to the ever-evolving needs of the construction industry," he said in a statement in Kuala Lumpur today.

NeuPave could help minimise construction costs in the long run, increase productivity and profitability and contribute to the high standards of quality and environmental sustainability upheld by the Malaysian construction industry, he said.

The NeuPave pavers, manufactured with the environment in mind, are designed to be porous, therefore water-permeable, allowing water to seep through the material to the soil underneath.

The company is the first to manufacture this type of pavers in Malaysia.

Besides contributing to flood reduction, NeuPave also reduces erosion caused by flooding, promotes groundwater recharge, reinforces and stabilises soil as well as improves water quality by trapping and treating pollutants.

NeuPave is ideal for use in irrigation and landscaping techniques, and in light to medium vehicular traffic pavement, parking lots, driveways, back lanes, pedestrian paths, lay-bys, bicycle paths, pool decks, jogging and buggy tracks and emergency vehicle access lanes.
