Imamiya Ebisu Shrine (Osaka, Japan)

CORE Product: CORE Gravel 50-35

To mitigate the effects of heavy rainfall and potential flooding, various urban planning and architectural techniques have been employed in Japan. These include the installation of permeable pavement systems like CORE, which allows rainwater to infiltrate the ground rather than running off into storm drains. Such systems help reduce the risk of surface flooding and can contribute to a more sustainable urban environment. This is why the team for this project chose to use CORE Foundations vs. concrete. In addition the area is natural, beautiful, and accesible by all!

The installation at Pacific Sands Beach Resort, a picturesque beachfront retreat on Vancouver Island's rugged west coast, features the use of CORE Foundations.

CORE Foundations effectively prevent issues like sinking or uneven surfaces, a crucial consideration for a resort where guest comfort and safety are paramount. The permeability of the system aids in water drainage, reducing the risk of puddles or flooding during rainy weather.
