Project Profile:

San Jose State University

Project Summary

At San Jose State University, founded in 1847, the campus has grown in the downtown area. Grasspave2 was used to maintain emergency and maintenance vehicle access down San Carlos Street which was turned into a pedestrian mall for student safety and to enlarge the core of the campus. A Grassrings2 job, from 1990, is located on the south side of the Children’s Discovery Museum, which you passed on San Carlos Street, the east side of Guadalupe Parkway. It’s an eleven year old installation that can be located in our Project Profile list.
