MONTREAL, Nov. 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Techo-Bloc, a company recognized for the quality of its hardscaping products, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded two prestigious prizes from the 2013 Contech building event. The result of major research and development efforts, the INFLO permeable tongue-and-groove paver received an honorable mention in the ICI market (Industrial, Commercial and Institutional) and took grand prize in the urban/suburban living category for innovation and sustainable development. INFLOs' unique design allows for the efficient management of rainwater runoff, which percolates directly into the ground and provides a cost-effective solution. In addition, this first monolithic permeable paver is far more durable than asphalt.
