AutoNation needed a 120,000 square-foot inventory lot. By using TRUEGRID, they saved nearly 21 percent of land that would have been designated for use as a detention pond. Working with their engineers and using TRUEGRID, AutoNation was able to maximize their land utilization and consider the project a success. 100% land utilization!
Seeing is believing. TRUEGRID shows why it’s the World’s Strongest Permeable Paver System. This heavy industrial crane rental yard has scores of 260,000 lb vehicles driving daily across the 57,600 sf PRO PLUS yard. Dust, mud and maintenance were virtually eliminated as the gravel lot was stabilized with TRUEGRID.
Four (4 ) large permeable parking lots of PRO PLUS were installed at the new Marine Biology Building. Storm water quality and natural aesthetic were the key to the decision on TRUEGRID.

The Garfield County’s fueling station needed a tougher surface than asphalt for the sharp turning and braking trucks. River City Consultants recommended TRUEGRID® as a stronger, more durable surface than asphalt and it will remain porous. The fueling station area received 23,550 sq ft of TRUEGRID PRO PLUS® filled with 3/8″ screened rock on a 6-inch sub-base of CDOT Class 6 (3/4″ minus).
The fueling station TRUEGRID® install was so successful, Garfield County Fairgrounds installed another 22,000 sq ft in its tractor-trailer staging and parking area next to the horse stalls. This area was originally planned to have asphalt. Comparing the durability, permeability, and cost-savings, asphalt could not compete with TRUEGRID®.
9,200 sq ft of PRO PLUS widens the brick paver walkway to a fully-functioning fire lane at the Wellmore Assisted Living Facility. The TRUEGRID PRO PLUS grass fire lane portion, at 8000 psi, is nearly twice as strong as the brick paver area -- topping out at 5000 psi. 100% grass coverage in PRO PLUS enhances the grounds and makes the file lane seamlessly blend with the surrounding landscaping.
