The Redstone American Grill is a spirited, rugged and romantic dining establishment that features a wood burning grill, rotisserie and open exhibition kitchen. Upon entering Redstone you are greeted with a large stone fireplace that provides an inviting and warm interior. The custom polished concrete entryway complements and enhances the atmosphere of the restaurant. Bomanite Licensed Contractor, Beyond Concrete provided a much needed update with polished concrete floors. Looking to combat wear and tear to add service life to their floor, reduce costly maintenance and create a custom designed surface to complement the decor, the Bomanite Custom Polishing System Modena SL was the answer. Bomanite’s premium Black Integral Color was used to achieve the warm and inviting look and to give it a rustic feel granite aggregates in a blend of black, white and red were put into the mix to provide that distinctive decorative effect.

Loveland Library (Modena SL)

When Loveland Library began the renovation of their Loveland Galleria library, they started to consider ways to enhance their existing flooring surface. The options seemed dismal with overlay materials such as carpet tiles or VCT. As a result, they hired Oz Architecture who designed a concept with earth, water, and wood. With those design elements in mind, they approached Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes on what is possible with a concrete overlay.

To achieve the concept of earth, water and wood, Oz designed an abstract pattern designed for the floor with Bomanite Modena SL – a concrete overlay with similar attributes to terrazzo. The base used Canyon City aggregate, two integral colors, and approximately 7,340 pounds of recycled glass. During the polishing process, Colorado Hardscapes applied two concrete dyes in specific areas to achieve an organic and flowing finish.

To achieve the design concept, a lot of details and thought went into the flooring. This made the design complex, the materials unique, and the end result spectacular.

Markley Honda Dealership (Modena SL)

When the Honda Corporation decided to renovate and expand Markley Honda in Fort Collins, CO, they turned to Drahota Construction for a design-build collaboration. The design team included STRATAap Architecture of Sonoma, CA. To best showcase their cars, the Honda Corporation maintains high standards and construction details for their showroom. They knew they wanted a white concrete floor, but were unsure how to get a showroom caliber, consistent finish between the existing building and expansion. Because of Drahota’s experience with Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes in the past, and Colorado Hardscapes’ experience with polished concrete flooring, they turned to Colorado Hardscapes for guidance.

Through a sampling process, it was soon discovered that Bomanite Modena polished concrete system was the ideal candidate for this high-end floor. To ensure quality and expectations, Colorado Hardscapes performed a full-size mockup in a 14’x20’ room off-site to work out the details and challenges prior to placement of the floor at Markley Honda. The finished floor was made up of a white-base Bomanite Modena SL floor with accent areas of a black Bomanite Modena SL floor featuring decorative zinc terrazzo strips. The product was then polished to provide the dealership with a low maintenance showroom caliber concrete, worthy of showcasing the newest models Honda has to offer. Markley Honda now enjoys the high-end finish of their beautiful new floor while enjoying the benefits of polished concrete.
