Industrial Equipment Yard- Bortunco
After years of constant maintenance, dust and mud, Bortunco needed a solution to the high cost of maintaining the parking lot and equipment. As a DIY project, they leveled out their existing potholes and ruts one last time, laid the TRUEGRID and filled with clean limestone. They now have a maintenance-free, attractive, better draining, long term facility lot. This lot handles high-traffic, heavy loads and was a huge success!
COMMERCIAL TRUCK PARKING LOT
A developer had plans to build an overnight parking location for 18 wheelers on major truck line in West Texas.

Golden Toilets, Visual Poetry and a Clear Message on Polluted Waterways
If you were handed a toilet seat painted in gold or a plunger painted in silver, wouldn’t you think that was strange and off-putting? Depending on the person, someone may be a passionate plumber but what if you were awarded for having the most polluted waterway in and around New York City?
The Dirt On Soil: Soil Properties and How They Affect Your Project
Dirt has a bad reputation. The word “dirt” finds its way into our phrases that often describe terrible things such as “dirt bag”, “getting all the dirt”, “dirt cheap” “dirt old” or “dirt poor”. We despise it when it invades our homes, cars and belongings and leaves tracks or layers of dust. Dirt and soil […]
PARKWAY BAKERY NEW ORLEANS
