StormTrap and Lafarge Announce License Agreement for Stormwater Solutions
New concrete answer for developers who need to reduce stormwater detention & retention costs
ROMEOVILLE, IL and WINNIPEG, MB, (July 22, 2016) - StormTrap®, a leading provider of stormwater management systems, and Lafarge Canada, Inc. announced today that they have entered into a licensing and manufacturing agreement. StormTrap has granted an exclusive license to Lafarge to develop and commercialize StormTrap's detention and retention products in western Canada.
StormTrap stormwater systems are designed to control volumes and flows leaving a site. The systems store runoff in large underground concrete chambers for a given period of time before the runoff is released at a controlled rate, or stored for other uses such as irrigation. This helps mitigate many of the harmful effects of high volumes of stormwater runoff, such as erosion and flooding.
StormTrap systems allow a site to maximize the volume of water stored while minimizing the project's overall footprint. By installing the concrete systems underground, beneath parking lots or streets, the land above is still available to use for parks, buildings or parking lots. StormTrap systems comply with all Canadian surface loading requirements and are completely modular for customized site needs. Lafarge completes the solution by providing project engineering and design.
"StormTrap further adds to Lafarge's environmental and sustainable product offerings which support LEED® and other green building programs", comments Graham Fuga, Stormwater Specialist, Lafarge.
"We are pleased to include Lafarge Canada into our portfolio of licensees," said Shawn Luton, VP-Sales of StormTrap. "This is perfectly suited to fully leverage the potential of StormTrap's intellectual property and serves as an ideal addition to our partnership with LafargeHolcim."
StormTrap, a leading provider of stormwater management systems for sustainable land development, is committed to providing cost-effective stormwater management solutions to engineers, owners and municipalities. Whether you need to slow or reduce volume from your project site, protect waterways and maintain stormwater quality, or hold water for harvesting and reuse, StormTrap's stormwater management systems can address all these needs with one customized system.
