Completed in 2014, this luxury residential tower includes a restaurant, café, main lobby, tech center, office space and fitness center. The Bomanite Licensed Contractor, Bomel Construction worked with designers, Rios-Clementi and GC Pankow to provide walkways, paths and outdoor entertaining area with a sophistication that matches the world class architecture. The Bomanite Exposed Aggregate System, Bomanite Revealed was installed in two finishes. One with a white base, beach tint and seeded with mother of pearl shells aggregate and the other with a gray base, black tint and inyo white rock to match the upscale lifestyle.

The Waterpark of America project involved the installation of approximately 22,400 square feet of monolithic Bomanite imprinted decorative concrete flooring in a Slate Texture Pattern on five different levels, including steps, curbing, structural bridges and ramps along with over 1500 lineal feet of pool coping which is poured and finished monolithically with the decks.

This project is unique because of the different techniques and products that were utilized, by Bomanite Licensee, Bulach Custom Rock, to produce the final result. The floors started as cast-in-place concrete, in which a base coat of Bomanite Color Hardener was troweled into the floor, and then imprinted. After the floor was cured for a short period of time, a second Bomanite color was added to the floor using a proprietary staining technique that gives the floor a beautiful variation. This process not only produced an exquisite final product, but due to the lack of dust, this process provided a much safer working environment for employees and other trade workers nearby. All coping areas were finished at the same time as the decks using a mixture of products to create a finished look that allows the coping to be part of the deck without having to be poured independently.

Another unique part of this project is the tremendous coordination that was involved with all the other trades. Because these floors were poured as monolithic slabs, these floors were being poured at the same time as overhead electrical, underground plumbing, painting, and theming, which made it very difficult to maintain a constant pouring schedule having to continuously work around lifts, scaffolding and excavating equipment all at the same time in an enclosed area. All of these things, together with being able to use application of products and techniques in a “thinking out of the box” situation is what makes Bomanite Licensees stand out from the crowd.

The Peoria Courthouse Plaza was completed the day before Thanksgiving, allowing the Annual Courthouse Plaza Christmas Lighting Festivities to go off without a hitch or incident thanks in part to Bomanite Licensee WM. Aupperle & Sons.

The County worked with the Bomanite Licensed Contractor and Drewberry Architects in choosing imprinted decorative concrete for their renovation project. 18,000 square feet of English Sidewalk Slate Texture was installed with a Shale Gray and Coquina Color Hardener and a Natural Gray Release Agent.

The courthouse plaza was transformed from worn out asphalt hexagon pavers to a modern Bomanite Stamped Concrete “state of art” showcase. According to the county of Peoria “ the asphalt hexagon pavers had served their purpose over the years. There were many areas that were in such despair that they were an eye sore and maintenance nuisance. We were fortunate to work with [Aupperle] to establish some tight and realistic budget figures to take to the Facilities and Space Planning Committee for recommendation and approval for an asphalt paver replacement project. Full County Board approval was realized and an operating budget was established to allow us to solicit public bids for this project. We were pleased that [Aupperle] stuck with us throughout this process and that they ultimately furnished us with the low responsive bid that allowed us to award the project to them.”

A 100 work day schedule was projected with a 3 phase renovation in order to keep the plaza open during the renovation. With extreme weather conditions, abandoned utilities, public traffic, limited elevation change, Aupperle was able to remove the existing asphalt pavers and concrete sub-base, re-establish grade, retrofit/repair drains, inlets and masonry walls, pour and imprint new Color Hardened Bomacron pavment all in 48 days!

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.

The Sprint Center is Kansas City’s home for sports, concerts, family shows, collegiate competitions, tournaments and special events. Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall installed 64,000 of concrete hardscapes during the construction of the arena. A small portion of their work involved The Moon’s Plaza. The project designer, Chris Doyle, created The Moons as the Percent-for-Art component of the Sprint Arena, in Kansas City, Missouri.
In front of the huge glass arena, Mr. Doyle created a plaza with three elliptical gardens, each with a water component. Hanging above each of the gardens is a moon, a circular LED video screen that shows individuals flying across the screen simulating orbiting the arena. Musselman & Hall, brought the surface to life resembling rock and sand textures with Bomanite’s Imprint and Exposed Aggregate Systems. A custom imprint pattern of random rocks was designed to achieve a look of natural stone once stamped and colored with Bomanite Black Color Hardener. Along with the imprinted surface Bomanite Sandscape Texture integrally colored in white was woven through the design to provide contrast, movement and
flow to the surroundings.
