Project Name: Concordia on the Lake

A Grasspave2 fire lane allowed for the area to be considered porous and undeveloped and the county granted the easement.

Installation of the grass fire lane shows the Grasspave2 expanding (widening) the asphalt section.

Summary: Heather Scott, DHM Design, stated that the only way Jefferson County would allow the easement, was by providing Grasspave2 as a firelane. The development design was exceeding paved, built, and hard surface area allotments. Grasspave2 allowed for Scott to continue with the project.  The county considered Grasspave2 as a porous (permeable) surface – the same as undeveloped land, thus not contributing to runoff.

DHM and Scott had to design in a wetland area to filter and slow runoff from entering the Johnson Reservoir at Clement Park.

Hill knew it would provide the natural elegant look with the stone edging and proved exceptionally durable. The Creek along this estate is considered a sensitive area requiring a porous surface road. Joe Gayle & Associates wanted a natural look; Mike Hill at NuStone Technology wanted tough. NuStone tried a sample area of Gravelpave2 abutting the bridge crossing the creed. Gravelpave2 keeps runoff from reaching the stream - to the left.
