Texas Bomanite Transforms Two Elementary Schools

Buildings have a life span, but more importantly they often have an earlier shelf life, as was the case for two elementary schools in Central Texas.  The Del Valle ISD (Independent School District) is a public educational district located in the Del Valle area, which is an unincorporated part of Travis County, TX.  This district provides educational services to a significant portion of southeast Travis County.  The district encompasses several incorporated communities, including Creedmoor, Webberville, the majority of Mustang Ridge, and some sections of Austin.  In conjunction with the 2019 voter approved Bond proposition, and an architecture schematic subsequently created by Pfluger Architects, Del Valle ISD contracted American Constructors as the General Contractor to demolish and replace two of the district’s oldest campuses, Hornsby-Dunlap Elementary and Smith Elementary.  American Constructors selected Texas Bomanite to install the decorative concrete in both schools.

Texas Bomanite was asked by American Constructors to provide over 70,000 SF of Diamond Polished, Dyed, and stamped concrete throughout the elementary school for each of the schools.  The project scope and timeline took three months to complete and included an initial mockup for each school prior to installation, 1500 grit polished concrete with Salt and Pepper aggregate exposure, a dyed concrete geometric design throughout the floors, and a school logo unique to each school.  The colors used for the geometric floor design were Sweet Potato, Black Orchid, Pineapple, Blueberry, Pine Green, and Turquoise.  The decorative concrete chosen for both of the installations were Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems using Bomanite VitraFlor and Bomanite Patène Teres, Bomanite Toppings Systems using Bomanite Patène Artectura, and Bomanite Imprint Systems.

Many Systems Many Satisfied Stakeholders

The Bomanite Custom Polishing System’s patented technology, when combined with Bomanite’s renowned color and craftsmanship, results in the finest concrete floor finish in the industry.  The process involves a polish that chemically bonds with the concrete, locking in the color, while the mechanical application seals the surface, preventing contaminants from penetrating.  One application, permanent results.  Lustrous color, protected by a tight, beautiful sheen.

The Bomanite Custom Polishing System VitraFlor, even when applied to gray concrete, can yield remarkable results.  This system, which is the foundation for all other Bomanite systems, can be used on both new and existing uncolored concrete.  With Bomanite VitraFlor, Bomanite fulfills its promise of making all concrete both functional and fashionable.  The process includes initial grinding, hardening with Bomanite Stabilizer Pro, honing, and polishing, capped off with protection from Bomanite VitraFinish.  Of all the Bomanite Custom Polishing systems, Bomanite VitraFlor is the most cost-effective option, mainly intended for new construction or extensive renovations.

Meanwhile, the Bomanite Patène Teres system is designed to color fully cured concrete during the polishing process, using Bomanite Chemical Stains and Bomanite Concrete Dyes. Starting with a base of uncolored gray concrete, which may include Bomanite Integral Color or Bomanite Color Hardener applied during placement, the floor undergoes grinding, staining, or dyeing, and then follows the standard Bomanite VitraFlor System process. The key advantage of Bomanite Patène Teres lies in its ability to introduce a wide spectrum of topical colors to concrete. When combined with skilled saw cutting techniques for patterns or designs, this process can elevate concrete to a form of art, offering a range from simple monochromatic tones to bright, vibrant hues and a variety of finishes from urban sophistication to varied, rustic styles.  Like Bomanite VitraFlor, Bomanite Patène Teres is primarily aimed at new construction or major renovation projects.

Stained Concrete Creates Ocean Lapping Sandy Beach

Heritage Bomanite installed Bomanite Patène Artectura decorative concrete for Saizon Restaurant in Fresno, CA.The project was new construction of a new Restaurant.  First, Heritage Bomanite had to grind and prime the area.  Secondly, they installed Brass Terrazzo strips with incredible accuracy to make sure they looked like continuous lengths.  Heritage Bomanite then installed the Bomanite Patène Artectura decorative concrete.  Polishing was completed once an Artist had applied the concrete stain to create the ocean effect lapping on to a sandy beach.  Finding the right level of shine and sand beach effect, using several applications of sealer, to the satisfaction of all project stakeholders, was one of the most difficult aspects of the project.

Stephens and Smith Snags Silver Specialty Project Award

Stephens and Smith installed Bomanite Micro-Top to create a conference table that provides the illusion of a heavily reinforced slab with a unique mottled finish.

 

 

 

Have you ever seen a surface and wondered what it is made from?  The rebar inside the glass covered center of this conference table is a huge hint.  Lange Structural Group contracted Bomanite Licensee Stephens & Smith Construction Co., Inc. to create a very specific decorative concrete conference table.  Among the specs was to give guests the illusion of a heavily reinforced slab.  This project consisted of a 4-foot x 9-foot x 3-inch concrete conference table, with a total of 36 SF, that utilized Bomanite Micro-Top® and epoxy.  The conference table used #5 rebar at 6 inches on center in the middle of the table.  Reinforcement is not continuous in the concrete, just where the deep pour epoxy is located.  However, it does provide the illusion of a continuous heavily reinforced slab and easily meets and beats that spec.

 

Curling Creates Complication

Stephens and Smith installed Bomanite Micro-Top to create a conference table that provides the illusion of a heavily reinforced slab with a unique mottled finish.

 

 

Stephens & Smith Construction originally created forms for the casting bed of the table nice and flat.  After the first casting, they quickly realized that concrete curls.  They knew about curling but didn’t think this relatively small conference table would see the effects of curling.  Unfortunately, the table curled 1/2 inch from center to the corners.  Unbelievable even with a low water/cement ratio mix design.  During their second attempt, they formed the table to account for curling.  If you notice in the picture, they cut “slits” into the formwork allowing them to crown the center and thus negating curling.  This gives the owner a nice flat surface and a concrete table that doesn’t rock.  After ample curing time on the concrete, they applied a Nickel Grey Bomanite Micro-Top with a hard trowel finish.  They then polished the top surface with 3000 grit and polished the bottom of the slab to 800 grit.  Bomanite Micro-Top® was a great solution to get a unique mottled finish the owner was looking for.

This conference table is not only functional and beautiful, but it also exudes inspiration.  Inspiration should be at the forefront of the conferees’ minds when meeting around a conference table.  Curt Embree, Architectural Coating Supervisor for Stephens & Smith Construction, was so inspired by the completed character of this conference table that he quickly jumped under the table to get the perfect photo of a person Behind Bars.  It is both clever, funny, and attention grabbing.  In a Facebook Post at the time, Curt said, “This was one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs I’ve ever done!  Trust us, challenging is putting it lightly.  At the end of the day, these are the types of projects that give our craftsmen a great sense of pride and accomplishment”.  It’s not just concrete, it’s an inspirational work of art.

Bomanite Provides Perfect Solution

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 high costs associated with elaborate forming and design work.  New construction surfaces, where complex design and color choices require costly multiple forming and pouring phases, now benefit from Micro-Top’s less expensive and time-saving application method.  Micro-Top is the perfect solution for the tight deadlines and budget constraints of new construction.  Color and design can transform existing, damaged concrete or other materials into art forms without affecting surrounding materials and fixtures.  Micro-Top can also take expanses of plain, gray concrete and transform those spaces into distinctive and dynamic areas, placing color where color could not normally be placed.  When a laminate floor or carpet is removed, no costly, abrasive blasting is normally required before Micro-Top is applied over the substrate, saving both time and money.

Jereme Montgomery, Business Development Manager for Stephens & Smith Construction said, “The final product is something we were proud of.  Many believe the larger the project the more complex.  For this project, the opposite is true.  Working conditions were coordinated in an office space that was still operating.  Hence, we had to build this table and still respect the working environment of the owner.” That is no easy task for a construction crew.  Because of the skill, competence, and expertise of the Stephens & Smith Construction crew of decorative concrete craftsmen, this conference table will be witness to many in-depth and inspirational discussions and meetings for many years into the future.

Texas Bomanite installed decorative concrete flooring using Bomanite Patène Artectura, part of the Bomanite Toppings System at Hotel Drover.For Hotel Drover construction, Texas Bomanite, one of Texas’ largest and most respected architectural concrete contractors, was asked by Commerce Construction Co., LP to provide a decorative concrete floor throughout the hotel lobby, levels 1&2 of the offices, levels 2-6, the event barn area, outside the event barn restrooms, and stained concrete columns in the event barn.  These are six different architectural areas, with six different specifications, but required an overall cohesive design aesthetic specification – no small task and no small challenge in a state that prides itself in everything being bigger.

Texas Bomanite installed decorative concrete flooring using Bomanite Patène Artectura, part of the Bomanite Toppings System at Hotel Drover.The hotel lobby included 3,610 SF of 7/8” Modena SL with Chemical Stain – Gray Concrete Overlay that was later Acid Stained with Bomanite – Ebony Stain.  The Ebony Acid Stain was diluted at two different percentages, 10% and 40%, to create the bands and fields as shown in the pictures.  The overlays were sealed with a two-part polyurethane sealing system in a matte finish.  The architect’s use of reclaimed wood to frame each of the decorative concrete flooring overlays adds another dimension of ambiance and intrigue to the outer bands of concrete surrounding the fields.
