Ensuring Compliance & Public Safety

We can help you choose the right products to meet the accessible design needs for both slip resistance and detectable warning surfaces.

Learn More

Lower Capital & Maintenance Cost

Learn how to reduce both capital and maintenance cost, from patterns that are compatible with machine installation to planning for underground utilities access.

Learn More

Improved Life Cycle

We can develop a Life Cycle Costing Analysis to determine the lifespan and ongoing maintenance cost for various pavement system options to help you design the best system for your needs.

Preserving Our Drinking Water Supply

When utilizing hardscapes to recharge the local groundwater, we’ll help you optimize the design based on local soil conditions, the slope of the terrain, and storage requirements.

Learn More

Controlling Runoff Volumes

By using a variety of strategies, we can help you design a system to mimic, if not improve upon, a site’s predevelopment hydrology.

Learn More

Controlling Peak Discharge Rates

Depending on the local terrain, we can show you a variety of options to control discharge rates during extreme storm events to avoid overburdening downstream waterways.

Learn More

Preventing Downstream Impacts

We can help develop a plan to minimize the thermal impact of a commercial development on receiving waters and aquatic life.

Learn More

Stormwater Quality

We can help you create the best design to stabilize slopes, minimize erosion, and significantly reduce pollutants that affect stormwater runoff quality.

Learn More

Site Stormwater Management

We can show you ways to address a number of site stormwater management issues including handling roof water, managing flat sites, providing geo-reinforced slopes for retention ponds, or even eliminating retention ponds altogether.

Learn More

Stormwater Harvesting

Our team can help you design the best PICP system to store stormwater underground, regulate the water volume, and even treat water for a variety of reuse purposes.

Learn More

Urban Environment

Learn how to reduce the use of deicing agents, reduce the urban heat island effect, and increase the health and lifespan of urban vegetation.

Learn More

Meeting Impervious Cover Requirements

When local regulations limit the amount of impervious cover that can exist on a site, we can help design a PICP system that will optimize land use and maximize a site’s potential income.

Learn More

Optimizing Land Use

The experts at Belgard can help you look at a variety of options to optimize your site with PICPs and retaining walls and maximize your site’s profit potential.

Learn More

Lower Infrastructure Costs

Total infrastructure costs can be lower using PICP than with conventional roads and stormwater systems. We can help with an infrastructure analysis to determine the best system for your project.

Learn More

Grey v/s Green Infrastructure Costs

We can help you determine whether your project will benefit more by upgrading the grey infrastructure or by reducing stormwater runoff with a PICP system.

Learn More

Defining Outdoor Space

Whether dividing a space into specific outdoor rooms or guiding foot traffic, the Belgard team can help you creatively make the most of an outdoor space.

Learn More

Increase Usable Space

Whether the goal is to increase the usable land in a high-sloped terrain, or increase a building’s footprint amidst regulations, the Belgard team can help you develop a design strategy to optimize your site.
