Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes of Denver, CO, incorporated the Patène Artectura system into their award winning Natural Resource Research Campus Building E (NRRC) project completed in February 2005 in Fort Collins, CO. Together with project designer, Mimi Hillen, Colorado Hardscapes created the beautiful mountain waterfall themed design to a 1992 sq. ft. entryway space of this US Forest Service office building. Using their signature quality craftsmanship and expertise, Colorado Hardscapes fulfilled the designer’s vision by utilizing innovative products and techniques while crafting the beautiful nature scene.
Along with installing a natural and simulated rock water feature, Colorado Hardscapes fashioned the shallow meandering stream look by using exposed aggregate to create depth and contrasting stream beds to the Aqua Blue Bomanite Con-Color curvatures of the flowing waterscape design. To create the prairie themed area of the project, Bomanite Olive, Auburn, Pine and Rust Red Chemical Stains were beautifully blended together giving the hardscape a warm and lustrous finish, adding to the overall aesthetic appeal of the entryway. With a unique touch to bring the project theme full circle, Colorado Hardscapes sandblasted animal tracks of 21 different animals throughout the area to capture the essence and complement the nature scheme of the inspired foyer.
Winning the 2005 Bomanite Gold Award for Best Patène Artectura Project, Colorado Hardscapes continues to illustrate their dedication to produce superior architectural concrete work by utilizing their impressive skill and artistry in combination with the Bomanite Systems in pursuit of creative concrete solutions.
