Owner

Hilton Hotel Corporation

In 1999, the owners of the Hilton Garden Inn in Elk Grove, CA hired a contracting company to install an Emergency Access Lane extending along the side of the property. Due to the large width of the lane and its proximity to the hotel, the owners explored paving options that would be not only functional but aesthetically pleasing to guests of the hotel.

Tufftrack Grassroad Pavers were selected for the job and installed.Twelve years later, the site was revisited so a visual assessment of the area could be conducted.

As shown in the pictures, the area with the Tufftrack base is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of the landscape. The grass is thick and green. They not only have a highly functional fire lane but the area remains a space that can be enjoyed by their guests when not in use.
