What is the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute?
Go Pavers delivers quality paving stone, superior installation, and the best customer service. In Southern California, pavers are a popular alternative to concrete driveways and patios but not every contractor understands how to install them in such a way that is both visually appealing and durable. At Go Pavers, our project managers are certified by the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) to ensure that we follow best practices and deliver amazing results that our clients can count on.
Our clients often ask us what ICPI is and how being certified helps our customers.
Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI)
The ICPI provides education and resources to people and companies within the industry. The training they provides, ensures that our project managers are informed and up to date on best practices, ways to promote environmental sustainability, and updated pavers technology. For example, they have issued our Installer Certifications and Designations. These educational courses require mastering the trade in order to pass. By becoming certified, our project managers are demonstrating our commitment to excellence.
At Go Pavers, our project managers are truly experts in the paving stone industry. We do not hire ill trained workers which ensures that our customers only receive the highest quality installations. If you are considering installing pavers, ask yourself if you want the project completed by someone that has been certified by a third party or a general contractor that hung drywall before starting on your driveway. We are specialist for a reason. We demand perfection from our staff and offer it to our customers every day.
Pavers are an environmentally sustainable solution to traditional cement roads, driveways, walkways, and patios. Water can seep through paving stones and into the ground which promotes the natural water cycle of the earth. Traditional cement can take away from the ground water we so desperately need for sustainability.
“Permeable pavement is a very important part of the low impact toolbox. It makes surfaces and sidewalks permeable so we can then infiltrate the runoff.”
Neil Weinstein, P.E., R.L.A., AICP, MASCE
Low Impact Development Center, Inc.
The ICPI promotes the additional environmental benefits of pavers including:
- Lower maintenance over time which reduces waste
- Improves quality of life for users
- Sustainable ecological paving solution
- They are LEED friendly with many manufacturers implementing practices to reduce their overall carbon footprint
- Longer life cycle
- Permeable pavement provides a base and subbase to house runoff water
Better for the Community
We believe that the local community is best served by local businesses that are committed to quality and reliability. In Orange County, pavers contractors will often bid on projects without fully understanding their complete cost or the installation process. Go Pavers is different because we are highly trained and work with local manufacturers. We are dependable, reliable, and offer complete transparency in our pricing so that local homeowners receive exactly what they are looking for. We understand that remodeling projects are personal and have taken it upon ourselves to maintain a commitment to excellence that customers can depend on. We are certified by the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute to ensure that our customers get the best from the best.
