The Gravelpave2 parking in Colorado Springs for the Pike’s Peak Regional Development Building accommodates about 60,000sf of parking and accounts for much of the on-site drainage.
Some spaces are delineated with recycled bumper stops painted yellow.
Most of the site drains towards the Gravelpave2 areas at the perimeter of the site capturing most of the runoff from the asphalt parking and much of the roof drains.
The parking drive isle and bays receive heavy everyday parking in all seasons and have done so since 2004.
Parking occurs at up to 6 or 7 percent slopes on the Gravelpave2 surface.
Site grading creates a comprehensive drainage plan with swales at the bottom of the site to catch any possible overflow from heavy rain events.

The large parking area here demonstrates the ability of the Gravelpave2 system to accommodate much of the parking for heavy retail/office uses, especially perimeter parking where much of the water is drained to oftentimes. With a well draining road base below, the system will drain most water events in the Rocky Mountain states with little or no run-off.
