The Dallas City Performance Hall, renamed the Moody Performance Hall, opened its doors in September 2012 to display the city’s artistic and cultural diversity. Texas Bomanite was brought on to provide the lobby and common areas with over 10,700 sf of low-maintenance, high durability Bomanite Custom Polished concrete floors.
In order to achieve the desired look, Texas Bomanite prepared a special concrete mix that was installed after numerous trial samples were produced, and the right mix was chosen. The final concrete design incorporated 100% aggregates and sand imported from Georgetown, Texas. The 3” topping slab was installed by others over a structural concrete foundation.
Texas Bomanite prepared a sample area of polished concrete for approval in place within the facility. The second sample produced indicative of a “Deep Grind,” or large aggregate exposure, was approved for the project. Working with the general contractor and the various other trades still on site, Texas Bomanite proceeded to polish the floors by sectioning off areas to work within. Once an area had been brought up to the final polish level, the floors were covered to protect them while the other trades completed their scope of work. Texas Bomanite also installed a polyurea joint sealer in the control joints located in the topping slab during the polish operation. As a final touch, Texas Bomanite uncovered the floors and provided a final floor burnish prior to the grand opening of the facility.
