get maximum flexibility in meeting both water quality and volume requirements.

FocalPoint High-Performance Modular Biofiltration System (HPMBS) is a scalable biofiltration system which combines the efficiency of high flow rate engineered soils with the durability and modularity of a highly pervious expandable underdrain/storage/infiltration system. The modular FocalPoint HPMBS is a complete, integrated system with a demanding specification that insures functionality, performance and maintainability. With rigorous quality assurance standards and post-construction in-situ performance verification, FocalPoint HPMBS provides guaranteed performance.

Focalpoint Drawing 101

The FocalPoint’s modular underdrain, unlike a traditional perforated pipe, not only supports the flow rate of the media, but can be expanded beyond the footprint of the media bed to provide unlimited underground detention, infiltration and/or storage for water reuse/infiltration.

FocalPoint HPMBS gives designers maximum flexibility in meeting both water quality and volume requirements.

The system can be used in combination with traditional LID BMPs such as grassy swales and vegetated depressions. It enables implementation of green streets using urban sidewalk planters; which because of the small footprint can support designs with large trees. These systems are also used for downspout planters, replacing underground treatment systems and are an easy retrofit for failed traditional bioretention systems. FocalPoint provides unlimited application opportunities for new construction and redevelopment.

In addition, when used in conjunction with complimentary stormwater management solutions, such as bioswales, permeable pavement, and raingardens, FocalPoint creates the ability for developers, architects and engineers to decrease a property’s surface storage volume requirements and increase lot yield. Subsequently, more land can be developed, increasing long-term revenue and property value.

Although the price per square foot of FocalPoint is many times higher than traditional bioretention, the efficiency of the FocalPoint High Performance Media makes the system more than 10-15 times smaller, per acre treated, resulting in a significant cost savings per acre treated.

10-15x Smaller

FocalPoint is a high performance bioretention system that manages large volumes of runoff within a small space. It consists of an open cell underdrain, bridging stone, high flow engineered soil, mulch and plants. It infiltrates surface runoff at 100″/hr, which is much faster than a typical bioretention soil mix. The high flow rate minimizes the footprint of the system and provides consistent performance, even when not maintained properly.

When used in conjunction with complimentary stormwater management solutions, such as bioswales, permeable pavement, and raingardens, FocalPoint creates the ability for developers, architects and engineers to decrease a property’s surface storage volume requirements and increase developable land. Subsequently, with more developed, property owners can increase long-term revenue and/or property value.

Proof Is In The Performance

FocalPoint utilizes physical, chemical and biological mechanisms of a soil, plant and microbe complex to achieve pollutant removal rates consistent with traditional bioretention, and the option of increased removal characteristics for specific pollutant targets.
