Victory Park is a 75 acre mixed use development that surrounds American Airlines Arena. It is home of the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars and is located in downtown Dallas. In 2014 a redevelopment with a focus on pedestrian-friendly improvements to Victory Park Lane was commenced. The goal was to improve the overall pedestrian experience and connectivity between American Airlines Center / Victory Plaza and the Southern area of Victory Park.

The street and streetscape improvements were a vital component of transforming Victory Park into Dallas’ premier walkable entertainment district. Texas Bomanite worked with Stantec ViBE in choosing the best medium for the proposed redevelopment streetscape areas. Bomanite Sandscape Texture was part of the hardscape design which included granite pavers, concrete pavers, and amenities such as benches, lighting, tree grates and signage. The Architect’s design of the Sandscape areas included sandblasting of a geometric pattern.

Texas Bomanite installed 4,500 Square Feet of Bomanite Sandscape Paving in the hardscape areas along Victory Park Lane between the tree grates and curbs. The project was built in 3 phases to meet the General Contractors critical schedule and to accommodate the W Hotel, High Rise Residences, Restaurants, and other businesses along Victory Park Lane.

The work performed by Texas Bomanite earned them top recognition and a Gold Award for the Best Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Project of the year.

Bomanite Sandscape Texture is designed for outdoor applications where an alternate to conventional concrete finishes is required. Sandscape Texture, one of the Exposed Aggregate Systems offered by Bomanite for architectural concrete surfaces, utilizes specialized concrete mix designs, additives, topical treatments and advanced application procedures.

The finished Sandscape Texture product resembles sand blasted concrete and can incorporate specialized colored sands in the concrete and aggregates exceeding 3/8” in diameter. The final product is an economical alternate to other decorative finishes while producing a monolithic concrete slab with a low life cycle cost due to the pre-aged nature of the surface. Applications include plazas, shopping centers, schools and exterior walkways—anywhere improved wear resistance for light- to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic is necessary. These highly durable surfaces are available in a multitude of standard and custom options, including light-reflective formulations that reduce heat island effect.

Bomanite Licensee, Premier Concrete Construction, LLC, based out of New Hampshire created a warm and inviting Patene Teres polished concrete floor for homeowners looking to add a distinctive look to their new 6,000 square foot home. The concrete was poured over a Radiant Heating System, polished, stained and saw cut into desired shapes to provide an elegant, warm look and feel to the home. The homeowners commented that the floor was so smooth that it actually felt “soft” to them even in bare feet!

The Patène Teres system utilizes Bomanite Chemical Stains and Bomanite Concrete Dyes to color fully cured concrete as part of the polishing process. The concrete slab typically starts out as uncolored gray or for some applications have Bomanite Integral Color in the concrete or had Bomanite Color Hardener applied to the surface during concrete placement and finishing. The floor is ground then stained or dyed. With the use of skilled saw cutting techniques, patterns or designs can be achieved in conjunction with the Patène Teres process. From simple monotone shades through bright and vibrant colors, the final appearance can be metropolitan chic or variegated and rustic. Patène Teres by Bomanite is intended primarily for new construction or major renovation projects, has the widest range of design variations and provides a highly architectural appearance.
