MD Science Center -
EQR was contracted by The Maryland Science Center at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor to create a demonstration project for the Maryland Science Center. The Science Center does a lot of tours for children and parents and they wanted to have an area where they could demonstrate how pervious concrete works while explaining the benefits.
This project was a group effort for EQR. Our client was the Maryland Science Center, grant funding was provided by UMBC and the University of Maryland. EQR did the excavation and preparation of the sub-base, Chaney Enterprises provided the pervious concrete, and Zecon installed the pervious concrete.
This project is a great example, in a high profile area, the benefits of pervious concrete. Due to its location, one can view the inner harbor and understand the importance of treating the storm water on the land, before it drains to the harbor. Hopefully, it will create an interest in pervious concrete which has the potential to become a large part of storm water work in the future.
