Low Impact Development In Construction Process

Low-impact development features reduce runoff, maximize retention, and lower the demand on public infrastructure. KCI has inspected and designed bioretention areas, grassed shorelines, and permeable pavements. It also understands the best construction techniques.

The desire for sustainable development has pushed communities and members of the construction industry to develop or adapt methods and means to analyze and study the building process and its impacts over the years. The building industry has been active in promoting sustainability since the 1990s.

Low Impact Development (LID), addresses the development stage of the building process. It is a way to design and construct a sequence of buildings that has the least impact on the landscape. Although it can address many site development issues, its main focus has been on stormwater management. There is an increasing amount of urbanized land in America every year.

This means that there has been an increase in the conversion of natural covers to impervious land and consequently, increased impacts on flora, fauna, streams, and lakes. The industry professionals have learned to manage rainwater in pipes using traditional methods.

As quickly as possible, collect the rainwater runoff and transport it to development. LID is designed to manage rainfall at its source. It provides treatment and management options, spreads it, slows its travel through the site, and encourages its absorption.

The excess water can then be released into conventional piped systems nearby. This method has many benefits including better water quality, less runoff, a more diverse ecosystem, and higher property values.
