Project Profile:

Drake Center

Project Summary

The grounds of the hospital looked great despite the summer drought. Drake Center is a unique Grasspave2 fire lane route which starts at the back of the hospital from the parking lot, goes through the fencing, underneath the building, and terminating in the center of an enclosed outdoor courtyard. Another Turner Construction job can be viewed on our Project Profiles. See Sieman's Office Bldg. #A in Boca Raton, Florida, from 1988.
