Many cities around the world are handling many problems derived from urbanization, resulting in an uncontrolled growth of cities. Moreover, Climate Change effects are affecting all countries and specially cities. In this context, urban drainage and paving strategies demand a bigger economical investment to avoid a great impact in citizens quality of life, and in the environment. The main objective of this research is to contribute, in an innovative way, with the construction of concrete urban pavements by studying, quantifying and trying to join together a series of characteristics and benefits that are analyzed nowadays, but in a separately way. Trying to achieve an integrated pavement, with resilient properties (adapted to Climate Change) and more sustainable (economically, socially and environmentally).
