Trees in cities are almost universally seen as a very desirable and indeed a hugely beneficial part of our lives. Tree health and longevity depends on the provision of quality soil for the tree roots. Providing an adequate volume of non-compacted soil beneath pavements is an issue that arborists, landscape architects and engineers have been debating for decades.
The CUPOLEX SOIL CELL system involves advanced concrete design geometry to produce the latest generation of under pavement soil cells for urban trees that can be adequately provided for in their urban setting.
The elevated CUPOLEX SOIL CELL pavement supported by the matrix of columns formed by the Rialto tubes allows the system to support high loads. The elevated CUPOLEX RIALTO structure and the void created below the slab can be used to contain quality and unlimited soil-volumes, creating structurally beneficent and strong structure systems that are conducive to root growth while supporting any pavement design.
