Bomanite Decorative Concrete Contractors Give Back to the Community

Bomanite Cares across the U.S.A., Bomanite licensed decorative concrete contractors make a difference in their communities

Humanitarian, hero, and three-time heavyweight champion of the world, Mohammed Ali once said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” Revered for his accomplishments in the ring and beloved the world over for his sharp wit and big heart outside of it, Ali’s legacy is that of The People’s Champion. David Edwards also enjoys a challenge and relishes the chance to give back. As the co-owner of Edwards Concrete Bomanite in Winter Garden, Florida, Edwards has been in the concrete business for more than 40 years. His firm specializes in decorative concrete applications and between the heat and humidity and Florida’s frequently difficult soil conditions, every job his firm does seems to have a few challenges.

“We do stamped concrete, exposed aggregate, polished, colored, and stained concrete,” says Edwards, who has been a Bomanite licensed contractor since 1989. His team of approximately 25 has been devising decorative concrete solutions across central Florida for four decades in service to theme parks, commercial contractors, and public institutions of all sorts and scales. “We don’t shy away from difficult jobs, and while I wear a lot of hats, I enjoy getting into the design side of the work quite a bit.”

When the COVID-19 shattered the world’s sense of normality in early 2020, Edwards was inspired to make a meaningful contribution to his community and quickly harnessed his team’s talents to put a little happiness in the lives of others. “My wife and I grew up in Ocoee, Florida and have lived here our whole lives,” says Edwards. “When the pandemic hit, we wanted to do something for the local health care workers who were putting their lives on the line for people in this community.” Edwards first approached Mayor Rusty Johnson about a charitable giving project he had in mind for the Orlando Health – Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fl. Once the seed was planted, Edwards and his team quickly conceived of a way to enliven the building’s entrance with a decorative token of esteem. In a group effort, Edwards secured material donations from his long-time local suppliers of ready-mix concrete, lumber, and metalwork to assemble the resources required.

The result is a beautiful patio garden next to the building’s staff entrance where health care workers can catch a moment of reprieve from the rigors within. A bold blue heart of Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Concrete in a glass finish is surrounded by blocks of Portland cement seeded with mother of pearl flakes and white chip granite. Strips of artificial turf segment the concrete sections to make the whole patio a refreshing pop of vibrant color that offers a warm welcome and a calm, quiet respite to the hospital’s healthcare workers. “We absolutely appreciate the healthcare workers on the front lines of this pandemic,” says Edwards with genuine satisfaction. “This resting area was meant to help them replenish themselves amid the stress and challenges of their jobs. We were fortunate to be considered an essential service in the early stages of the pandemic and wanted to show our support for the healthcare workers and our community.”

Tyler Balch is a second-generation owner of Texas Bomanite in Dallas. “Since the firm was founded in 1987, one of our core beliefs has been giving back to the community we serve,” says Balch of the firm’s operational foundation. Texas Bomanite employs close to 100 people and completes commercial architectural concrete projects across most of Texas from offices in Dallas and Austin. When the firm was approached about a small but significant polished concrete project for The American Fallen Soldiers Project in Addison, Texas, Balch knew immediately that their cause was worthy of charitable consideration.

A 501c3 non-profit organization, The American Fallen Soldiers Project honors and memorializes American military service members who made the ultimate sacrifice with an original, hand-painted portrait of the fallen that is presented to their family. The brainchild of artist Phil Taylor, each portrait is undertaken to provide Gold Star Families with a small token of comfort and compassion in their time of loss. When the organization leased a new office and gallery space in a suburban office park and inquired about a polished concrete floor, Texas Bomanite decided to do it at a discount. “They wanted a polished concrete floor with a black orchid dye to give the space a very high-end, museum-quality feel,” shares Balch of the scope of work. “Because of the condition of the existing concrete slab, the work involved a lot of patching and grinding to prep the floor to be polished. We felt this was a cause we would be proud to get behind, so we donated time and materials equal to about 28 percent of the total cost. With Bomanite you are getting the best of the best, so making this an affordable option for a very worthy recipient made everyone involved feel fantastic.”

In Aurora, Colorado Bomanite licensed contractor, Colorado Hardscapes, supported a feel-good project of a different sort. Founded in 1947, Colorado Hardscapes has been Front Range Colorado’s premier decorative concrete contractors since the industry’s inception. When they learned of a local effort by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to build a sensory garden and playground for a local 7-year-old boy, Colorado Hardscapes jumped on board.
“The City of Aurora teamed up with the Make a Wish Foundation and a whole host of others to develop a fully-accessible playground with a sensory focus at Red-Tailed Hawk Park near the child’s home. We knew right away this was something we wanted to be a part of,” says Project Manager, Christy Bol. The child’s wish of wishes was simply to go to the park to play and laugh with other children and making that dream come true was a joy and honor for all involved.

The 8,000 SF site features a sensory wall composed of a tactile composition of shapes, textures, and colors, a wavy walk that undulates like a roller coaster, and swings, spinners, and slides of several sorts. A Bomanite Topping Systems – Micro-Top XT was used to make the sensory wall pop with color, while a Bomanite imprint texture mat added a high-touch surface to the rising wall. Bomanite Con-Color was also used to stain the concrete to add swooshes of whimsical flair to flatwork surfaces.“We donated the materials and labor to do  the wavy walk and stained concrete design throughout the park and did the vibrant, textured seat wall at cost,” says Bol. “We were also able to secure a donation from our concrete supplier, Aggregate Industries, for all of the concrete we installed.” Beyond the giving back, Bol shares that the project called upon Colorado Hardscapes’ artistic capacities. “There was only a sketch to start with, so our team got to be creative in conceptualizing the parts and pieces of this one-of-a-kind sensory wall.”

From functional to fantastic, these projects explore the many interesting and innovative possibilities in the world of decorative concrete while illuminating a common bond between Bomanite’s nation-wide network of licensed contractors. “From our perspective, we feel like we have been blessed to be a part of this great community-enhancing project,” finishes Bol. “Charitable giving is a great way to give back and show our commitment to the people and places our projects serve in a long-lasting, meaningful way.”

First Texas Honda Installs Bomanite Systems

To meet specific flooring design requirements throughout the building, Licensee Texas Bomanite, worked with project designer Architect’s Inc. in the initial design phase for First Texas Honda. The result ended with four different flooring systems to accommodate the long-standing dealerships future expansion. Founded in 1964 as Continental Cars, First Texas Honda is a part of family-owned and operated Continental Automotive Group in Austin. In late 2012, they completed a state-of-the-art renovation to the Steck Avenue showroom making it the largest Honda dealership in the world at over 140,000 square feet.

Texas Bomanite installed 95,665 square feet of Bomanite Custom diamond polished concrete flooring in the service areas and service drive. The finishes ranged from 800 grit to 100 grit. In the showroom area and service building, 37,150 square feet of custom colored Bomanite Micro-Top was installed with over 40,000 linear feet of decorative scoring. The highlight of the showroom was the Honda logo. 270 square feet of the front entry features the Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate system, and the front entry walks and bridge deck features over 7,515 square feet of the Bomanite’s Sandscape Exposed Aggregate system.

Bomanite Exposed Aggregate System – Sandscape Texture
Bomanite Sandscape® Texture is designed for outdoor applications where an alternate to a conventional concrete finish is required. Utilizing specialized mix designs, additives, topical treatments and advanced application procedures, Bomanite Sandscape Texture resembles sand blasted concrete. First Texas Honda chose Sandscape Texture for the exterior walkways for its durability in all-weather situations, slip resistance for pedestrians and durability for car parking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Toppings System – Broadcast Aggregate
The Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate System is a multi-layered architectural and protective flooring system with a non-skid decorative surface. Bomanite Broadcast Aggregate uses a multitude of surface seeded fine aggregates such as colored quartz, silica carbide or other hard minerals that create a highly durable, minimal maintenance surface which is easy to clean and maintain in a wide variety of environments including the First Texas Honda entry way that was custom colored to complement the recognizable Honda Blue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Toppings Systems – Micro-Top
The Bomanite Micro-Top system utilizes a troweled-on cementitious topping that tenaciously bonds to virtually any substrate, including concrete, wood, metal, plastic or asphalt. Micro-Top can be installed as interior flooring, spotted as accent areas, continued up a wall, traversed up the side of a building or applied directly to a street section or used for logo creation. Micro-Top offers the unique ability to cover a variety of surfaces with a wide range of colors and graphics, while also providing a cost-effective method to achieve multiple colors without the excessive costs associated with elaborate forming and design work, making it the perfect selection for the Honda Logo and continuation of the Honda brand throughout the showroom and customer service areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bomanite Custom Polishing Systems – VitraFlor
VitraFlor utilizes select un-colored concrete that is placed and finished to standards required for decorative polished concrete flooring. The concrete is ground to expose the desired amount of aggregate, then polished to the required gloss level and treated with a Bomanite stain resist. The primary benefit to Bomanite VitraFlor is the simplicity of installation, durability and low maintenance of the finished floor. With no topical dyes or products utilized to color the concrete, this makes Bomanite VitraFlor cost effective in comparison to other more labor and product intensive systems and an easy choice for First Texas Honda Service Bay areas.

MMGY Global Marketing Firm Chooses Bomanite Modena SL Polished Concrete to Replace old Cork Flooring

MMGY, the largest integrated travel marketing organization in the world, and Lisa Jensen Design contacted Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors, for a decorative concrete flooring solution for the outdated, 800 square foot lobby of their office. The existing flooring was a worn cork flooring that showed wear and damaged from years of use.

The client, MMGY, wanted a “white polished concrete floor” to enhance and complement the new sleek design of the total space. They were looking for a thin overlay application to achieve the desired finish and timeframe. The Bomanite Modena SL Custom Polishing System was proposed and samples were created for client review of the final color and finish.

Bomanite Modena SL is a polymer-modified, cementitious interior bonded floor topping that is blended with selected decorative aggregates then placed with no finishing. Once fully cured Bomanite Modena SL is machine ground to expose the aggregates and polished to the desired gloss level.

The project was a fast-track installation in order to keep a minimum disruption to the MMGY operation. Bomanite Modena SL Custom Polishing System may be lightly walked on 12 hours after placement, which provides a benefit for needed accelerated renovations. On a Thursday evening, prep began with removing the existing cork flooring, grinding the exposed concrete sub base, and then applying Bomanite XP Primer with a sand broadcast. The next morning the Bomanite Modena SL integrally colored product was poured and size 0 and size 1 white terrazzo glass was blended into the overlay. On Saturday, the floor was polished and completed. The client was able to be back at work within 48 hours.

The finished floor is a gorgeous representative of the options available for Bomanite Custom Polished Concrete and how Bomanite’s Modena SL system delivers the design flexibility of decorative architectural concrete. The Modena system can transform existing or worn surfaces into beautiful walkways, showrooms and lobbies and is available in a range of colors and patterns using decorative sawcuts. Additional topically applied stains and a variety of aggregates, such as recycled glass or porcelain along with regionally sourced materials, are all options in creating a beautifully designed, environmentally friendly and functional floor.

Bomanite’s Decorative Concrete Evolves as Designers Push Envelope

Bomanite was recently recognized in a Denver publication InnovatioNews.

DENVER — The leading edge of design will always be in the distance, a constant challenge most in the building industry find compelling.

Designers want to innovate because their clients expect a wow factor in the finished product. Builders must make it happen, stretching to find subcontractors with the precise knowledge, skill, and equipment required to deliver whatever the leading-edge innovation is.

For both designers and builders, keeping up with the curve is critical. When it comes to high-performance, indoor/outdoor, hard surfaces, Bomanite is the most recognized name in architectural concrete.

“Architects are often looking for something new or unique, an answer to a problem. That’s where we excel,” says Terry Grimble, director of technical services for The Bomanite Company.

Bomanite Director of Technical Services Terry Grimble

With a 70-year history, Bomanite is recognized as the inventor of stamped concrete, exclusively establishing the techniques and market for high-performance, imprinted, decorative, and ornamental concrete in the 1950’s.

Today, Bomanite products are being installed independently by licensed contractors in Colorado and all over the U.S. on commercial and residential projects of every scope and scale.

Bomanite’s collective knowledge and resources are available to each of the 50 independent contractors across the country when challenges arise and technical or logistical expertise is required.

When Texas Christian University renovated their football stadium the design objective for Founder’s Plaza was to emulate a map view of Fort Worth, Texas including city streets, railroad tracks and the Trinity River.

After offering design assistance in planning 40,000-SF of highly decorative exterior walkways around the stadium, Texas Bomanite completed the installation of multiple finishes, with logos, lights and letters imbedded throughout.

Being able to draw upon the collective knowledge of the Bomanite Company and 49 other colleague contractors working with Bomanite products is always an asset.

“Our goal is to be able to economically recreate all of the finishes we develop on a much larger scale, in a way that can be installed using tools and equipment common to the industry at generally any place in the U.S.,” says Grimble.

Harlequin Plaza with Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems Sandscape Texture

In addition to establishing the chemical compositions and installation techniques for products, Bomanite also produces technical details and product samples that can be shared with architects for specification, and marketing materials for licensees.

The increased desire for public wet-play surfaces like those found in water parks has also contributed to the growing range of decorative concrete products offered today.

At the Tandy Family YMCA in Tulsa, Okla., designer GH2 Architects introduced a dynamic splash pad at the main entrance as a public amenity. With any wet play surface, hardscape materials need to account for a coefficient of friction to make them safe for energetic, bare foot play on a hot summer day.

Bomanite Sandscape is ideal, combining locally sourced aggregates, colored sands, and custom glass to create a granulated surface texture speckled with shiny glass jewels.

GH2 and the Y’s leadership selected a combination of Bomanite Revealed (Custom Blue Glass) and Bomanite Sandscape Texture (Gobi Desert Integral Color) techniques.

“This project called for high-impact, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting architectural concrete,” says Jeremy Carlisle, associate principal with GH2 Architects in Tulsa.

“Perhaps just as importantly, we needed it to be installed by a team with the technical knowledge to tackle a very challenging configuration and complex coordination.”

The company said it takes pride in the meticulous development of compositions and finishing processes that can be readily installed in the field. With practicality for the builder, durability for the product, and high-quality for the owner all in mind, Bomanite goes through as many as 50 iterations before finalizing the technical details of laying a new type of concrete surface.

An example of a newer product, the Bomanite Antico process is used to create fissures, voids, and other random effects simulating a semi-worn stone surface comparable to natural pitted limestone or a travertine tile.

When the Northside Church in Clovis, Ca. decided to reinvent the plaza space in front of the church as a dynamic new baptismal center, their primary goal was to create a place where people feel welcome and connected.

There, designers selected a combination of the Bomanite Sandscape Refined Antico finish in Bomanite Light Brown and three integral colors in a Bomanite Sandscape finish to get the cohesive yet varied look they wanted.

“Decorative concrete is wonderfully flexible in terms of being able to create virtually any combination of color and texture and shape imaginable at a reasonable cost,” says Terry Broussard, principal with Broussard Associates, who led landscape architecture services for the redeveloped space in front of the church.

“Bomanite’s products are a very viable solution for public spaces where design matters and ordinary broom finished concrete isn’t going to feel special.”

Samples are a critical component of the product specification process taking place in design studios across the country, and decorative concrete finds no exception for either size or complexity.

“Concrete isn’t paint,” says Grimble with a smile. “There are a lot of variables, from the selected aggregate’s specific gravity and color influences to the ready-mix producer’s material composition.”

Standardized and custom 3-inch square chips developed in Bomanite’s Denver, CO laboratory allow architects, owners, and contractors to hold the real thing on a smaller scale, demonstrating clearly that design intent is understood.

“These samples are basically a business card and we are heavily invested in controlling quality and confidence in the finished project. They are far more accurate than a color chart or product photograph could ever be.”

While the edge of design will always be elusive, innovation is constant and Bomanite said it allows the building industry to continually increase their wow factor expectations.
