What Is Convergent
Stormwater Experts Delivering Next Generation Solutions Through a National Network of Stormwater Partners.
We do that by breaking through the obstacles to innovation inherent in this industry by providing innovators with a regionally focused, national network of Value-Added Resellers. Introducing new ideas and new technologies into a market requires deeply rooted local relationships and a highly collaborative, solution-focused sales approach which is generally missing in the stormwater industry.
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) has approved the FocalPoint High Performance Modular Biofiltration System (HPMBS)
October 4, 2021 – The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) has approved the FocalPoint High Performance Modular Biofiltration System (HPMBS) — an innovative stormwater technology that is beneficial to engineers, land planners, landscape architects, installers, developers and end-users implementing green infrastructure and low impact development techniques. Because of its small footprint, open-bed configuration and modular subsurface drainage layer, it offers tremendous versatility for use as a water quality best management practice (BMP) in urban settings.
How We Bring
Innovation To The Market
An innovator at a school/garage/think tank comes up with an innovative idea for stormwater management,
but they have no idea how to bring it to market. Convergent can step in and help throughout the entire product lifecycle.
“The biggest benefit to me, as a professional engineer, is the fact that these systems have a long and successful history. Each component of the FocalPoint system have years of testing and successful implementation behind it. This gives me peace of mind that my project will be successful for the long term. I want to be sure that the solution that I recommend to my clients and utilize in my designs are going to be right solution for the project and that includes lasting for a long time. FocalPoint gives me that peace of mind.”
“We selected the [Element1] media for our Bagby project that includes urban raingardens for several reasons. The predominant reason is due to the limited project right-of-way we had to select a biofiltration media that provides a high acceptance of infiltration in a limited area. Additionally the product is basically turnkey through design, construction and maintenance provided a fluid design process through the design and approval process. Finally I have a level of confidence working with Construction Eco Services that they not only have their product in consideration but think about what’s best for the project and our environment.”
“FocalPoint is one of the few products on the market that meets Harris County criteria for high infiltration rate media. Convergent Water Technologies guarantees the engineered media for one year and provides maintenance checks for one year. These are valuable services that alleviate some of the anxiety clients experience when piloting a new product.”
