Rowe Middle School Pervious Parking Lot

Milwaukie, OR

A sustainable, cost-effective solution providing school staff with improved parking.

About this Project

Staff parking at Rowe Middle School needed to be expanded, but a traditional impervious lot would have required expanding the storm drainage system and providing water quality upgrades to the site at a great expense. In addition, it would have had to rely on an old system for water detention, further increasing costs. Instead, 3J proposed using pervious concrete pavement, which would reduce costs and save a 50-inch heritage tree located on the site. The highly sustainable, maneuverable parking lot was the first pervious concrete application in the District.
