Standards and Specs
All processes, and especially construction, need set standards. There has to be some agreed documentation which declares what is right and what is wrong, what is good practice and what is bad. We rely enormously on the British Standards, and so do many other parts of the world. Learn about those standards, and how paving works are specified in this section.

Pavement Traffic Categories
Not all pavements are created equal. Our expectations of a back garden patio are different to what we need from a major truck road, and that’s why we have Traffic Categories, different classes of pavement for all the different applications.
