Courtyard by Marriott

Project Summary

The Courtyard site was very nice. For comparison visit the Brighton Gardens by Marriott just down the street from this location on the corner of Dunham and Foxfield at 600 Dunham. The client for both projects is Marriott, both are fire lanes, but the second one is in grasscrete or some kind of concrete paver, a very noticeable installation.

Permeable paving was installed in the fire lane areas at Marriott Assisted Living in St. Charles, Michigan, using Grasspave2.
Fire lane is an extension of the street toward this fire hydrant. Note the attached pole so that the hydrant can be located in the winter should snow levels cover the top. Even grass fire lanes should be plowed when snowfall exceeds 3”.
