Tuscany Plaza

The Tuscany Plaza, located in Englewood, Colorado is a commercial building that received an updated hardscape to match its Class A status. When the Lowe Enterprises representative went to the Colorado Hardscapes’ Design Center to check out paving options for the Tuscany Plaza, he thought he was engaging in an effort of futility. How could any concrete product meet Lowes high standards and expectations?

However, after exploring the possibilities Bomanite Licensed Contractor Colorado Hardscapes had to offer, the Lowes representative was ready to recommend concrete as a replacement for tile in the atrium and walkways. The decorative concrete finish that was decided on pushed the limits of what the experts at Colorado Hardscapes had done before. It turned out to be their first project in Denver that used a lighter-than-gray integral color with the Sandscape Texture system, without using white cement. The white Lithocrete bands and the 7’ o.c.e.w. scoring required extensive forming and long straight lines. All of the concrete was installed over waterproof membrane and/ or structural concrete. Both the expansion and v-cut joints required caulking. All requiring the expertise of installation and quality craftsmanship that Colorado Hardscapes provided while meeting the first-class expectations for the paving at Tuscany Plaza.

ONEOK Plaza Renovation

PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS/INFORMATION

Alaback Design Associates approached Bomanite Licensed contractor Bomanite of Tulsa, Inc. to create a paving option for the ONEOK Plaza redevelopment project. Instead of the usual band-aid repair project, the natural gas company opted for a $4.8 million renovation of Plaza Commons, an area along Sixth Street between Boulder and Cheyenne avenues. The renovation includes a multipurpose outdoor space, complete with new seating and green-space landscaping for employees and downtown visitors that incorporates a modern feel that complements the revitalization of downtown Tulsa.

The architect wanted a product to complement the granite pavers being used on the project and decided Bomanite Alloy was a perfect option for the concrete paving.

Bomanite Alloy offers a blend of reflective aggregates to create a unique decorative finish for a highly durable monolithic slab. Bomanite Alloy can be placed exterior for use with light to moderate duty vehicular traffic or foot traffic.
