The Edina Promenade design and layout contained sidewalks, plazas, bridges, and a pond and stream. Bomanite Licensed Contractor, Bulach Custom Rock, worked with the Main Contractor and Architect along with the City of Edina to install the several elements to improve the livability of the community’s residents, employees and visitors. The plazas and bench areas were installed using a integral color base along with two different dust on color hardeners in order to supply both a marbling of the concrete and a darkened border. While still wet, the concrete was imprinted to give a slate textured look. The plazas and bench areas were over 2,400 square feet.
The pond bottom, roughly 6,600 square feet, was poured using integral color along with a single dust on color hardener. The entire pond bottom was poured in five sections over a 10 mil rubber membrane which did not allow for any stakes or other units to be used for forming. Special forming techniques were used as a result in order to achieve the final appearance.
The stream bed, 850 square feet, was poured using a high strength concrete mix utilizing both microfibers and no large aggregate which included an integral color. Once poured, over 10,000 individual stones were placed by hand into the wet concrete to create a finished product.
Bridge decks were cast-in-place concrete using an integral color base which was imprinted with a wood plank pattern. Then each bridge was stained using a proprietary staining technique to create a varied wood look. Integrally colored sidewalks of approximately 8,800 square feet were broomed and were given decorative diamond shaped cuts.
The Edina Promenade is an 80’ wide greenway that connects the region’s various retail, residential, and recreational amenities. The Promenade includes 3/4 of a mile of pedestrian and bicycle pathways and is designed as an extension of Centennial Lakes Park (a beautifully landscaped 24-acre area surrounding a 10-acre lake). This developing network pathway creates the “ultimate urban escape”.
