First Texas Honda Installs Bomanite Systems

To meet specific flooring design requirements throughout the building, Licensee Texas Bomanite, worked with project designer Architect’s Inc. in the initial design phase for First Texas Honda. The result ended with four different flooring systems to accommodate the long-standing dealerships future expansion. Founded in 1964 as Continental Cars, First Texas Honda is a part of family-owned and operated Continental Automotive Group in Austin. In late 2012, they completed a state-of-the-art renovation to the Steck Avenue showroom making it the largest Honda dealership in the world at over 140,000 square feet.

Texas Bomanite installed 95,665 square feet of Bomanite Custom diamond polished concrete flooring in the service areas and service drive. The finishes ranged from 800 grit to 100 grit. In the showroom area and service building, 37,150 square feet of custom colored Bomanite Micro-Top was installed with over 40,000 linear feet of decorative scoring. The highlight of the showroom was the Honda logo. 270 square feet of the front entry features the Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate system, and the front entry walks and bridge deck features over 7,515 square feet of the Bomanite’s Sandscape Exposed Aggregate system.

Bomanite Exposed Aggregate System – Sandscape Texture
Bomanite Sandscape® Texture is designed for outdoor applications where an alternate to a conventional concrete finish is required. Utilizing specialized mix designs, additives, topical treatments and advanced application procedures, Bomanite Sandscape Texture resembles sand blasted concrete. First Texas Honda chose Sandscape Texture for the exterior walkways for its durability in all-weather situations, slip resistance for pedestrians and durability for car parking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Toppings System – Broadcast Aggregate
The Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate System is a multi-layered architectural and protective flooring system with a non-skid decorative surface. Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate uses a multitude of surface seeded fine aggregates such as colored quartz, silica carbide or other hard minerals that create a highly durable, minimal maintenance surface which is easy to clean and maintain in a wide variety of environments including the First Texas Honda entry way that was custom colored to complement the recognizable Honda Blue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Toppings Systems – Micro-Top
The Bomanite Micro-Top system utilizes a troweled-on cementitious topping that tenaciously bonds to virtually any substrate, including concrete, wood, metal, plastic or asphalt. Micro-Top can be installed as interior flooring, spotted as accent areas, continued up a wall, traversed up the side of a building or applied directly to a street section or used for logo creation. Micro-Top offers the unique ability to cover a variety of surfaces with a wide range of colors and graphics, while also providing a cost-effective method to achieve multiple colors without the excessive costs associated with elaborate forming and design work, making it the perfect selection for the Honda Logo and continuation of the Honda brand throughout the showroom and customer service areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems – VitraFlor
VitraFlor utilizes select un-colored concrete that is placed and finished to standards required for decorative polished concrete flooring. The concrete is ground to expose the desired amount of aggregate, then polished to the required gloss level and treated with a Bomanite stain resist. The primary benefit to Bomanite VitraFlor is the simplicity of installation, durability and low maintenance of the finished floor. With no topical dyes or products utilized to color the concrete, this makes Bomanite VitraFlor cost effective in comparison to other more labor and product intensive systems and an easy choice for First Texas Honda Service Bay areas.

MMGY Global Marketing Firm Chooses Bomanite Modena SL Polished Concrete to Replace old Cork Flooring

MMGY, the largest integrated travel marketing organization in the world, and Lisa Jensen Design contacted Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors, for a decorative concrete flooring solution for the outdated, 800 square foot lobby of their office. The existing flooring was a worn cork flooring that showed wear and damaged from years of use.

The client, MMGY, wanted a “white polished concrete floor” to enhance and complement the new sleek design of the total space. They were looking for a thin overlay application to achieve the desired finish and timeframe. The Bomanite Modena SL Custom Polishing System was proposed and samples were created for client review of the final color and finish.

Bomanite Modena SL is a polymer-modified, cementitious interior bonded floor topping that is blended with selected decorative aggregates then placed with no finishing. Once fully cured Bomanite Modena SL is machine ground to expose the aggregates and polished to the desired gloss level.

The project was a fast-track installation in order to keep a minimum disruption to the MMGY operation. Bomanite Modena SL Custom Polishing System may be lightly walked on 12 hours after placement, which provides a benefit for needed accelerated renovations. On a Thursday evening, prep began with removing the existing cork flooring, grinding the exposed concrete sub base, and then applying Bomanite XP Primer with a sand broadcast. The next morning the Bomanite Modena SL integrally colored product was poured and size 0 and size 1 white terrazzo glass was blended into the overlay. On Saturday, the floor was polished and completed. The client was able to be back at work within 48 hours.

The finished floor is a gorgeous representative of the options available for Bomanite Custom Polished Concrete and how Bomanite’s Modena SL system delivers the design flexibility of decorative architectural concrete. The Modena system can transform existing or worn surfaces into beautiful walkways, showrooms and lobbies and is available in a range of colors and patterns using decorative sawcuts. Additional topically applied stains and a variety of aggregates, such as recycled glass or porcelain along with regionally sourced materials, are all options in creating a beautifully designed, environmentally friendly and functional floor.

Bomanite Alloy Exposed Aggregate System Gives you The Edge on Design

The Edge at East Village Apartments, known as Hartford Commons, is a  high end residential complex that offers everything one would need to live life to the fullest. Downtown Tulsa’s newest luxury apartments are within walking distance of the historic Brady Arts District, the Blue Dome District and Tulsa Performing Arts Center and offers amenities for an active lifestyle. Residents can enjoy a workout in the 24/7 state-of-the-art exercise facility, relax in the large swimming pool with a tanning ledge, plan social get-togethers or family outings in the outdoor kitchen and BBQ grill area.

The Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Alloy System is a perfect match for the luxury living at The Edge at East Village Apartments. Bomanite Licensee, Bomanite of Tulsa worked with the designers at Alaback Design Associates and after reviewing samples, they chose Bomanite Alloy for its highly architectural reflective properties and surface slip-resistance qualities for the apartment pool deck. The pool coping was placed using Bomanite Alloy as well. Radius saw cuts were incorporated into the design to continue the detail of the pool.

Bomanite Alloy is a unique alternative to other decorative concrete finishes. Its low life cycle cost is a bonus for multi-unit complex developers, providing improved wear resistance for light- to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic, assisting in low maintenance for the heavily used patio and pool deck areas of the The Edge Apartments. Due to the use of Bomanite Sand Color Hardener, these highly durable surfaces are available in a wide range of aggregates and permanent light fast colors to help reduce heat island effect. Bomanite Alloy is highly sustainable as well as a suitable choice for architectural luxury designs.

Bomanite’s Decorative Concrete Evolves as Designers Push Envelope

Bomanite was recently recognized in a Denver publication InnovatioNews.

DENVER — The leading edge of design will always be in the distance, a constant challenge most in the building industry find compelling.

Designers want to innovate because their clients expect a wow factor in the finished product. Builders must make it happen, stretching to find subcontractors with the precise knowledge, skill, and equipment required to deliver whatever the leading-edge innovation is.

For both designers and builders, keeping up with the curve is critical. When it comes to high-performance, indoor/outdoor, hard surfaces, Bomanite is the most recognized name in architectural concrete.

“Architects are often looking for something new or unique, an answer to a problem. That’s where we excel,” says Terry Grimble, director of technical services for The Bomanite Company.

Bomanite Director of Technical Services Terry Grimble

With a 70-year history, Bomanite is recognized as the inventor of stamped concrete, exclusively establishing the techniques and market for high-performance, imprinted, decorative, and ornamental concrete in the 1950’s.

Today, Bomanite products are being installed independently by licensed contractors in Colorado and all over the U.S. on commercial and residential projects of every scope and scale.

Bomanite’s collective knowledge and resources are available to each of the 50 independent contractors across the country when challenges arise and technical or logistical expertise is required.

When Texas Christian University renovated their football stadium the design objective for Founder’s Plaza was to emulate a map view of Fort Worth, Texas including city streets, railroad tracks and the Trinity River.

After offering design assistance in planning 40,000-SF of highly decorative exterior walkways around the stadium, Texas Bomanite completed the installation of multiple finishes, with logos, lights and letters imbedded throughout.

Being able to draw upon the collective knowledge of the Bomanite Company and 49 other colleague contractors working with Bomanite products is always an asset.

“Our goal is to be able to economically recreate all of the finishes we develop on a much larger scale, in a way that can be installed using tools and equipment common to the industry at generally any place in the U.S.,” says Grimble.

In addition to establishing the chemical compositions and installation techniques for products, Bomanite also produces technical details and product samples that can be shared with architects for specification, and marketing materials for licensees.

The increased desire for public wet-play surfaces like those found in water parks has also contributed to the growing range of decorative concrete products offered today.

At the Tandy Family YMCA in Tulsa, Okla., designer GH2 Architects introduced a dynamic splash pad at the main entrance as a public amenity. With any wet play surface, hardscape materials need to account for a coefficient of friction to make them safe for energetic, bare foot play on a hot summer day.

Bomanite Sandscape is ideal, combining locally sourced aggregates, colored sands, and custom glass to create a granulated surface texture speckled with shiny glass jewels.

GH2 and the Y’s leadership selected a combination of Bomanite Revealed (Custom Blue Glass) and Bomanite Sandscape Texture (Gobi Desert Integral Color) techniques.

“This project called for high-impact, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting architectural concrete,” says Jeremy Carlisle, associate principal with GH2 Architects in Tulsa.

“Perhaps just as importantly, we needed it to be installed by a team with the technical knowledge to tackle a very challenging configuration and complex coordination.”

The company said it takes pride in the meticulous development of compositions and finishing processes that can be readily installed in the field. With practicality for the builder, durability for the product, and high-quality for the owner all in mind, Bomanite goes through as many as 50 iterations before finalizing the technical details of laying a new type of concrete surface.

An example of a newer product, the Bomanite Antico process is used to create fissures, voids, and other random effects simulating a semi-worn stone surface comparable to natural pitted limestone or a travertine tile.

When the Northside Church in Clovis, Ca. decided to reinvent the plaza space in front of the church as a dynamic new baptismal center, their primary goal was to create a place where people feel welcome and connected.

There, designers selected a combination of the Bomanite Sandscape Refined Antico finish in Bomanite Light Brown and three integral colors in a Bomanite Sandscape finish to get the cohesive yet varied look they wanted.

“Decorative concrete is wonderfully flexible in terms of being able to create virtually any combination of color and texture and shape imaginable at a reasonable cost,” says Terry Broussard, principal with Broussard Associates, who led landscape architecture services for the redeveloped space in front of the church.

“Bomanite’s products are a very viable solution for public spaces where design matters and ordinary broom finished concrete isn’t going to feel special.”

Samples are a critical component of the product specification process taking place in design studios across the country, and decorative concrete finds no exception for either size or complexity.

“Concrete isn’t paint,” says Grimble with a smile. “There are a lot of variables, from the selected aggregate’s specific gravity and color influences to the ready-mix producer’s material composition.”

Standardized and custom 3-inch square chips developed in Bomanite’s Denver, CO laboratory allow architects, owners, and contractors to hold the real thing on a smaller scale, demonstrating clearly that design intent is understood.

“These samples are basically a business card and we are heavily invested in controlling quality and confidence in the finished project. They are far more accurate than a color chart or product photograph could ever be.”

While the edge of design will always be elusive, innovation is constant and Bomanite said it allows the building industry to continually increase their wow factor expectations.

Bomanite Sandscape – an Environmentally Conscious Application for Waterparks

The Hilton Anatole Hotel is a landmark that spans 45 lush acres in the Dallas Design District just north of downtown. The hotel was constructed in 1979. The hotel has over 1600 guest rooms, ballrooms, five dining venues, a spa and health club, outdoor pool and 7-acre private Sculpture Garden. The hotel is host to many events, conferences, and conventions.
In 2015, Hilton broke ground on Jade Waters, a $20 million seasonal resort pool complex, utilizing 4 of the 7 acres of garden space. Jade Waters features a lazy river, two 180’ water slides, a children’s area and activity pool, leisure pool, swim-up bar and full-service restaurant. Cabanas and day beds are available in addition to the ample lounge seating. Jade Waters is exclusively for the use of hotel guests and health club members.

General Contractors, T&G Constructors, contacted Bomanite Licensee, Texas Bomanite in the Design Development phase of the project to work with Landscape Architecture firm TBG’s design team to provide finish options and budgeting to T&G Constructors. The hardscape portion of the project contains 60,000 square feet. Texas Bomanite provided Sample Boards of concrete finishes to TBG prior to full-size mockups being constructed on-site. Two finishes from the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems and three different colors were selected by TBG and Hilton from the jobsite mockups. The finishes were Bomanite Sandscape and Bomanite Sandscape Refined systems. The Bomanite Refined finish was also combined with a Bomanite Custom Imprint System to create a unique finish for the area of the project bounded by the Lazy River and referred to as the “Big Island”. This finish was also installed at the “Beach Entry” of the activity pool. The Imprint System combined with the Bomanite Sandscape finish simulates shifting sands on a beach.

Following approval of the mockups, the construction phase began. Due to unusually wet weather and soil conditions, the project had fallen behind schedule. T&G Constructors required an accelerated schedule to maintain the July opening date for the waterpark. This required crews to work six and seven day workweeks as well as holidays for several weeks. The congested site and wet soils presented another obstacle and required daily meetings with T&G Constructors Superintendents and their subcontractors for coordination of work areas as well as laydown areas. Texas Bomanite used recycled concrete fines in place of cushion sand to provide a better base on which to set forms and pour the concrete. Recycled concrete was also used to provide haul routes to get materials and equipment in and out of the site. The waterpark and garden opened in July of 2016 as scheduled.

The sustainable properties of Bomanite Sandscape Texture make it an excellent choice for environmentally conscious applications. Bomanite Sandscape Texture mix designs readily accept fly ash or slag or other supplementary cementitious materials, offsetting a portion of the ordinary portland cement. Urban heat island effect can be greatly reduced by thoughtfully designed installations. Third party independent testing has shown that Bomanite Sandscape Texture can exceed .29 solar reflectance without the use of white cement, allowing for the concrete to be cooler underfoot making it ideal for large urban plazas and pool deck applications.

Veterans Administration Walk of Honor Memorial

The Veterans Administration (VA) Central California Health Care System originally hired Heritage Bomanite to place plain gray concrete with a broom finish for their Walk of Honor Memorial project. Heritage Bomanite worked with the VA and TETER Architects & Engineers Company and had them visit their architectural design showroom. Many samples were reviewed and they were so impressed with the quality, durability, look and feel that they decided to upgrade to the Bomanite Sandscape Texture System.

The walk is a landscaped area that leads visitors to the center’s Wall of Honor. The integrally colored concrete and Sandscape finish path has a hand cut pattern in dark and light grey colors. Heritage Bomanite installed the red granite stars along with the decorative concrete finish. The walls are locally quarried Black Granite with more than 1,100 Veterans names engraved.

TETER was so moved by the project that their staff gathered donations that made it possible for the VA to purchase a Battlefield Cross bronze statue for the Walk of Honor. TETER’s Jonathan Schlundt who served as Project Manager on the memorial stated, “The entire process was inspirational in many ways—from the participation of staff creating a plethora of designs, the involvement and advice from community activists alongside the VA, and the commitment of local contractors; but the best part was seeing what the project meant to the Veteran’s and their loved ones on opening day.”

The VA stated that the Walk of Honor was a significant undertaking that will enhance the physical, spiritual and mental healing of Veterans, families and visitors. Each November following Veterans Day, the VA will host a dedication ceremony to add names of Veterans to the memorial.

Marriott Courtyard Porte-Cochere Stylish Stamped Concrete

The Marriott Courtyard Asheville Airport Hotels entryway and guests terrace received a much needed beautiful makeover. Bomanite Licensee, Carolina Bomanite, was called in by the general contractor, Pro Construction, on advice from the owner. The owner, Touchstone Hospitality, was having a workmanship issue with the first pour of stamped concrete by a local contractor. Lack of skilled labor, lack of multiple tools led to a very poorly poured terrace off the meeting area. The client had used Carolina Bomanite before on a Hampton Inn Hotel project and was familiar with the workmanship and asked if they could remedy the issues.

Carolina Bomanite was able to review the project and recommend corrections that were in need for standard regulation pours and stamped concrete work. All of the curb and gutter at the porte-cochere was 11” to low and the area leading to the front door exceeded 5% slope. In addition, a small smoking patio sidewalk had to be reworked with a twist in order to get enough length to keep the slope under 3%. All of these items were noticed by the Carolina Bomanite team. Carolina Bomanite first took control of the grades, and then made some adjustments to the pattern and the project turned out great. The Bomacron English Sidewalk Slate Pattern and Bomacron Slate Texture were used for the porte-cochere area with Bomanite Caramel Color Hardener and Bomanite Forest Brown Release colors. For the circular terrace area, the Bomacron Running Bond Used Brick pattern was installed with a Bomanite Brick Red Color Hardener.

Touchstone Hospitality was very pleased with the work done. Guests are now welcomed with a properly installed, safe, stylish stamped concrete entrance and inviting relaxing stamped concrete terrace.

Garmin Expansion Calls For Pedestrian Pathway

Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors (M&H) worked with local architecture firm Gould Evans during the design development phase of the Garmin Expansion project. M&H assisted with the project specifications and samples. The design team and owner’s representatives visited the M&H architectural concrete showroom multiple times to discuss project particulars and review samples until the team was able to fine tune the project finishes.

Musselman & Hall placed 40,800 SF pedestrian plaza as part of a building expansion project at the Garmin headquarters in Olathe, KS. Nearly 25,800 SF of the plaza was done utilizing the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Finish, Multiple planter beds, cast-in-place Sandscape finished concrete benches, a continuous 1’ x 8’ joint spacing, and the detailed stain pattern created unique challenges to this project.

The entire plaza was saw cut and v grooved, or bevel cut, on a 1’ x 8’ joint spacing, joint layout was extremely critical. The jointing was continuous throughout the 700’ long plaza. Any variance in joint layout would be obvious and would not be acceptable.

M&H used Bomanite Con-Color to stain the Sandscape Texture portion of the plaza. The stain pattern incorporated three Bomanite Con-Colors; Cobblestone Gray, Nickel Gray, and Natural Gray. The stained Sandscape was then sealed with BomaSeal C-18.

This is a beautiful project and exhibits the potential and beauty of quality architectural concrete. This project won the Gold Award for the Best Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Project.
