INFINITE CAMPUS CREATES NATURAL BEACH FEEL WITH BOMANITE MODENA MONOLITHIC AND RENAISSANCE

Infinite Campus is the largest U.S. owned K-12 student information management firm that is nestled among natural wetlands and a city park. Wanting to allow views to the exterior natural elements, the Finn Daniels Architect firm made sure the design incorporated architectural precast concrete wall panels, a glass curtain wall, and metal panels to provide views as well as creating an energy efficient building. The interior features open work spaces, two story garden elements with crossing bridges, a central rotunda, training rooms, and a full food service cafeteria

When planning the cafeteria, the owner, Infinite Campus and Finn Daniels Architects wanted a free-flowing design that would complement existing epoxy terrazzo floors and carpet. The area needed to work with the natural elements already set and required low maintenance with a reflective sheen. During the conceptual stage the design team determined that the decorative concrete indoor flooring project should emulate the feeling of a sandy beach or shoreline which would shimmer and glisten like shells and sea glass in the sun. Bomanite Licensee Concrete Arts, Inc. provided the natural beach look by installing the Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems with Bomanite Modena Monolithic for the winding middle sea shell area and Bomanite Renaissance Deep Grind for the shoreline perimeter… READ MORE

ARCHITECTURAL SAMPLES UNLIMITED CONCRETE COLORS

Bomanite provides a wide range of architectural concrete colorants to enhance your current space, renovated or newly designed areas. Color can be added to concrete by several methods: added into the mix (integrally colored), dusted on the surface (dry shake), and hand applied with brushes, trowels, sprayers as liquids or powder forms (stains, dyes, tints, toppings). With each project, it is strongly recommended that hard samples be created, viewed and approved using construction techniques and materials identical to those that will be used in the actual construction of the project. This sampling process must be completed prior to specifying the final color and appearance.

Bomanite offers chip samples to specifiers, architects, designers, landscape designers and anyone interested in a hard sample of a color. Samples help determine the look and finish of the selected Bomanite System. Color samples are available in 3” x 3” chips in boxed sets or individual colors. Custom samples can be made and are available in 6” x 6”, 12” x 12” or 24” x 24”.  If interested in obtaining a sample for your project, contact your local Bomanite Licensed Contractor or View at www.bomaniteshop.com. They can assist with sample selection, project design, specifications and color charts.
