This approval marks a pivotal moment for the company, allowing their sustainable pavers to be utilized in public constructions and renovations across New York City, starting with the prestigious renovation of the Canarsie Library in Brooklyn.

We are excited to announce that our ProFlow Permeable Pavers™ have been officially approved by the New York City Department of Design and Construction. This approval is a testament to our commitment to sustainability and innovation in building materials, and it opens the door for our products to be used in public projects throughout the city.

The first project to feature our ProFlow Permeable Pavers™ under this new approval is the extensive renovation of the Canarsie Library in Brooklyn. Led by W Architecture, the Canarsie Library renovation aims to double the public space, enhance community facilities, and create a modern, welcoming environment for all visitors. Our pavers will be used in several key areas of the project, including the sidewalk adjacent to the building, the entryway, and the rooftop terrace. These pavers will not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the library but also provide sustainable, permeable solutions that align with the project's green goals.

The Canarsie Library renovation is a part of a larger effort by the Brooklyn Public Library system to update and improve its branches, ensuring they meet the needs of the community for years to come. The project includes increasing the library space from 4,000 to nearly 8,000 square feet, creating new areas for children and teens, a flexible community meeting room, a maker space, and a recording studio, among other improvements​
