The PermaTrak team made 15 presentations in as many cities reaching landscape architects, planners, engineers, and public agency employees of public works and parks and recreation departments. Over 300 attendees met the PermaTrak team, while having the opportunity to feel, touch and see a life size 10 ft run of 7’-6” wide boardwalk complete with the standard PermaTrak components. The optional precast pier foundation, colored and textured treads were also on display.

We’re not going to give names, but while standing on the boardwalk some Floridians even took off their shoes to sense how cool the product performed in the Florida sun! Thumbs up!
