Britpave, the British Cementitious Paving Association, is an independent body established to develop and forward concrete and cementitious solutions for infrastructure.

Please note, Britpave Trade Association has no commercial interest in or trading association with Britpave concrete step barrier. For contact details see:

It is active in the development of solutions and best practice for roads, rail, airfields, guided bus, drainage channels, soil stabilisation and recycling. As such, the Association is the focal point for the infrastructure industry.

The broad membership of Britpave encourages the exchange of pan-industry expertise and experience. Members include contractors, consulting engineers and designers, specialist equipment and material suppliers, academics and clients – both in the UK and internationally.

The Association works closely with national and European standards and regulatory bodies, clients and associated industry organisations. It provides a single industry voice that facilitates representation to government, develops best practice and technical guidance and champions concrete solutions that are cost efficient, sustainable, low maintenance and long-lasting.

    Design and evaluation methods Explains why joints are required in an un-reinforced rigid concrete pavement and incorporates the results of questionnaires sent to a number of airfield operators. The guidance covers current practice and flags up issues of concern, providing information on the design, specification, construction, maintenance and performance of concrete joints.

    Design and evaluation methods The four major methods of designing airfield pavements are compared and assistance is given in the task of deciding which one to use, based on three criteria that covers construction practice; failure condition, evaluation of strength of existing pavements and their limitations. The UK designs from the PSA and BAA are discussed and their background is explained.
