East Phillips Community Center was a new project. The architect choose polished concrete for the ease of maintenance, savings cost and sustainability. Mark Kalar, LHB Architects, wanted a polishing company that was known for there decorative work because of the amount of design scoring and complexity of layouts and colors the project entails. Bomanite Polishing Licensee, Concrete Arts was choosen.
The Patene Teres Bomanite Custom Polishing System incorporated several Concrete Dye Colors; Black Orchid, Pineapple, Pomegranate and Warm Honey. Two finishing products were used as well; Bomanite Stabilizer used to harden and densify the concrete and Bomanite Stainguard to provide a protective finish.
The challenges that went along with this project were the layout, design score, separation of all the eclectic colors, color combination and choices and the placement of a metal medallion that needed to be in the center of the room. Concrete Arts provided them with clean lines, no cracking even amongst all the cuts that came together, solid colors with variations that were used to give more of a stained patina look rather than a solid monolithic look.
