Mission Statement: To reduce the use of traditional hard paving and the impact is has on the environment


WaterPave is an Australian-owned company using Australian products and providing a highly professional approach to the supply and installation of its unique permeable paving systems. Right from the initial phone call, professional staff will guide you through the installation process and find the right product for your job.

Martin Cook, managing director of WaterPave, created the business when he discovered a major void in the building industry for quality-made, durable permeable paving alternatives to porous concrete materials and products. As a registered builder, Martin undertook several property development projects, and on numerous occasions was faced with the council requirement for a permeable driveway system due to large trees on or neighbouring the property. Unsatisfied with the available options, he decided to research the industry and develop his own permeable systems.



Permeable concrete and paving help to prevent potentially harmful storm water run-off from entering waterways. Instead, the design of the paving material allows the water to be absorbed into the ground below, cleaning the water and preventing ground dry-out that often occurs underneath non-porous paving or concrete products. They also reduce the overall surface temperature; a big plus when it comes to summer!

Suitable for residential or commercial work as well as council development projects, permeable (or pervious) paving is a durable and versatile alternative to other concrete or tarmac alternatives while also having the added benefit of a more attractive overall appearance.

At WaterPave we provide both DriveCon™ and DriveTec™ systems. To learn more about which one will best suit your paving needs you can chat to our dedicated team of experts by simply clicking here.


WaterPave Australia specialises in the supply and installation of high-performing permeable paving systems designed to absorb rainwater and reduce the effects of flooding. That’s why Melburnians turn to WaterPave for affordable solutions and alternatives to porous concrete products.

We are the industry leader and top innovator in the construction of permeable paving, servicing the civil, commercial and residential construction industries.
