The Emporium Building in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, is one of the many buildings that Dewhirst Construction has revitalized and turned into residential space.  The courtyard between the Emporium and the neighboring building is very shady and it was a continual battle trying to maintain a usable turf area.  Synthetic turf was the perfect solution to the problem.  Since the installation of the turf in 2010, there has been no maintenance and it is still in its original condition.
