Nestled within the storied landscapes of America, Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Briarcliff Manor, NY, carries the distinction of being one of the nation’s oldest country clubs. This prestigious club, steeped in history, faced the delicate challenge of updating its facilities without compromising its venerable heritage. Connecticut Bomanite Systems rose to the occasion, partnering with Viking Construction and the club to reimagine its patios and sidewalks. Their mission was to integrate the new with the old harmoniously, ensuring that the fresh concrete work would complement, rather than overshadow, the club’s rich past. The club chose Bomanite Imprint Systems consisting of a 10,287 SF saw cut into a 4’x4′ pattern of Bomanite English Sidewalk Slate with seal gray CH field and flamed granite with gunmetal gray CH border. This choice was emblematic of a commitment to preserving the club’s character while embracing modernity and resilience.
Bomanite Imprint Integrates Tradition
The versatility of Bomanite Imprint Systems played a pivotal role in this endeavor. With over 400 unique patterns, textures, and color schemes at their disposal, Sleepy Hollow Country Club was empowered to select a design that resonated with its historical essence while providing an updated and durable surface. This custom-tailored solution ensured that the new additions would stand the test of time, both aesthetically and functionally. The project was not just about renovation; it was about bridging eras, crafting spaces that honor the past while welcoming the future. Connecticut Bomanite Systems has the expertise and the trained decorative concrete artisans to bring that vision to reality.
Durability is a hallmark of the Bomanite Imprint Systems, a feature that was put to the test during the filming of an episode of “Law and Order” at the club. The production’s rigorous demands, involving heavy equipment and constant foot traffic, posed no threat to the newly installed pathways and patios. This resilience is a testament to Bomanite’s innovative approach to decorative concrete design, utilizing molds derived from natural materials like stone and wood, as well as more unconventional elements such as metal and plastic. This adaptability ensures that each project can be as unique as the client’s imagination, incorporating custom images, logos, and textures to create a truly personalized space.
Bomanite Builds Beautiful Legacy
Adding to the aesthetic and functional benefits of the Bomanite Imprint Systems is the Bomacron series, which introduces an additional layer of texture and depth. This cast-in-place, colored, and imprinted concrete offers an intricate level of detail, providing a tactile quality that enhances the visual appeal. The result is a seamless integration of new and old, where innovation meets tradition. Sleepy Hollow Country Club’s decision to employ these advanced Bomanite decorative concrete solutions reflects a broader commitment to maintaining its historical integrity while ensuring its facilities meet the highest standards of quality and durability. This project stands as a beacon of how heritage and progress can coexist, creating spaces that are both beautiful and built to last.
