Musselman and Hall Conquers Complex Bomanite Renaissance Design

Bomanite licensee Musselman & Hall Contractors installed decorative concrete flooring using Bomanite Renaissance.When Rockford School district needed a new school constructed, they specified decorative concrete flooring that was at a reasonable cost but, just as important, durable, and beautiful.  Eureka Elementary, located in Eureka, MO, and part of the school district, was recently built by HOF Construction.  The project designer, Dickinson Hussman, selected Bomanite licensee Musselman & Hall Contractors to tackle the intricacies of the challenging design.  Challenging projects done within the time allotted, even if shorter than optimum, are a forte for Musselman & Hall and they were a perfect match for this project.

 

 

Complex Design Done by Skilled Bomanite Craftsmen

Bomanite licensee Musselman & Hall Contractors installed decorative concrete flooring using Bomanite Renaissance.Musselman & Hall used Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems with Bomanite Renaissance to complete the 22,500 square foot project.  The project required four colors of Bomanite Renaissance poured in contact with each other in a geometric pattern of bands, then ground and polished as one slab.  They placed 2-inch-thick topping slabs in four different integral colors.  The Bomanite colors used were French Gray, Natural Gray, Sand, and Coquina.  The latter required the use of white cement, which was a challenge of its own, because white cement sets very quickly.

Bomanite licensee Musselman & Hall Contractors installed decorative concrete flooring using Bomanite Renaissance.The layout of the four colors made it crucial that both the formwork and the placement of topping slabs be installed with absolute precision to achieve sharp construction seams and maintain even aggregate exposure throughout.  The schedule required their crews to begin grinding and polishing in the first areas they placed before they were even completed with the slab installations.  The crews then ground and polished, as one slab, to a satin sheen and full aggregate exposure.

Renaissance by Bomanite Provides Lustrous Durable Flooring

Bomanite of Tulsa Installs Bomanite Revealed and Alloy to Create Contemporary Concrete Pool Deck Design

This beautiful backyard retreat was created to serve as an outdoor extension to an already stunning home, with contemporary design and distinct detail that enhance the home’s architecture.  Bomanite Licensee Bomanite of Tulsa, Inc. was enlisted to create the pool decking and provide a surface that would visually and functionally complement the pool while also enhancing the home’s exterior and landscaping.

Durable Hardscape Decking with Versatility for Distinct Design

Bomanite decorative concrete is the optimal choice to create swimming pool decking because it provides high durability and versatility for customizing color, pattern, and design style.  The homeowners were originally planning on color and rocksalt but after a visit to the Bomanite of Tulsa showroom they changed their material selection to include Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems with Bomanite Revealed and accents of Bomanite Alloy.

Bomanite Revealed combines the durability of concrete with color and pronounced decorative aggregate and utilizes pre-blended binders, light fast pigments, topical treatments, and advanced application procedures to produce a finished product that showcases the seeded aggregate.  Unlike most surface seeded installations, Bomanite Revealed provides 100% exposure of the decorative aggregate with no native sands detracting from the finished appearance.

Bomanite Alloy is a unique alternative to other decorative concrete finishes and provides an architectural exposed finish with varying exposure depths using non-native quartz and decorative aggregates that are surface seeded on the concrete.

Bomanite Revealed and Bomanite Alloy both provide an architectural finish that is highly suited for exterior applications, including pool decks or anywhere that improved wear resistance for light to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic is required.  Additionally, these highly durable surfaces are available in a multitude of standard and custom options, including light-reflective formulations that reduce heat island effect, water resistant formulations for wet areas, and other specialty applications that can be personalized to your project.

Installation and Award-Winning Results

After the finishes were selected, Bomanite of Tulsa set to work with the installation.  The pool coping was poured first, followed by the field of Revealed.  Alloy was then used to fill in the bands and the combination of Revealed and Alloy was perfect to provide increased surface and slip resistance.  The exposed decking reduces heat island effect, making the pool deck walkable and not hot to the touch.  The drains were incorporated into the exposed aggregate concrete and feature a concealed slot drain design that was chosen to eliminate the sight of drain grates while providing efficient drainage.

From start to finish this project ran smoothly and resulted in a contemporary decorative concrete pool area that broadens the home’s living space, providing an outdoor retreat for the homeowners and their guests to enjoy.  The installation of Bomanite Revealed and Bomanite Alloy earned Bomanite of Tulsa the 2020 Best Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems Project Honorable Mention Award for their outstanding efforts in creating a durable and distinct hardscape while adding ambiance and enhancing the homeowner’s sophisticated style.

Concrete Arts Proud to Rebuild Target to Help Heal a Community


Bomanite licensee Concrete Arts installed the decorative concrete flooring at the reconstructed Target East Lake in Minneapolis, MN, using Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems with Bomanite Patene Teres.
There are few events in history that can create a rift in the space-time continuum of a community, a veritable paradigm shift that causes ripple effects worldwide.  The death of George Floyd in May of 2020, and subsequent protests and riots, in Minneapolis is just such an event.  Floyd’s death occurred less than a mile from the Target East Lake Street store, which was nearly destroyed, and the Third Precinct Police Station, which was burned to the ground, is directly across the street from that store.  The loss of Target East Lake made it hard for the people in this south Minneapolis neighborhood to buy groceries since there were no other grocery stores within walking distance.

 

How We Rebuild Is More Important

What makes this restoration unique is Target’s commitment to include community input.  “Today, with construction well underway, I recognize that how we rebuild is just as important — if not more so — as when we rebuild. We want the Lake Street community to view this store as a part of itself, not just a place to shop,” Cephas Williams Jr., a group Vice-President at Target, said. “So, we’re listening to the voices of the community and applying what we’re learning and will continue to do so.”  Cephas William’s full statement is titled, To Our Lake Street Minneapolis Community: We’re Listening, Learning, and Re-Opening.  Target’s community outreach was in-depth and extensive.

Partnering With People Who Live Nearby

Bomanite licensee Concrete Arts installed the decorative concrete flooring at the reconstructed Target East Lake in Minneapolis, MN, using Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems with Bomanite Patene Teres.Target partnered with Nawal Noor, CEO of Noor Companies, a local Black-woman-owned General Contractor and Developer to lead the rebuilding efforts to complete Target’s fastest restoration ever.  Bomanite Licensee Concrete Arts was contracted to be a part of the demolition of the damaged carpet, VCT and corresponding adhesives. The scope of that first stage was completed the last week in June of 2020. Concrete Arts removed approximately 110,000 square feet of flooring in a week running double shifts.  Concrete Arts then left the site to allow for extensive repairs and changes to the concrete. They came back in on August 1st and had five weeks to polish the 90,000 square feet of flooring.  Working 12 hour days, six days a week Concrete Arts finished in 4.5 weeks despite being at the epicenter of the social justice fight which subjected them to three separate shut downs due to further protests.

A Reimagined Store Is Restored.

Our company feels a great deal of satisfaction in helping this suffering neighborhood try to get back to some sort of normalcy.”
