Bomanite Broadcast Flake floors are multi-colored flakes encapsulated in high performance, two-component primer, body and top coats that give an architectural design and at the same time create a protective flooring system for long term use wear and tear. The Bomanite Broadcast Flake System utilizes Bomanite Florspartic 100 to create a highly durable, low maintenance surface and provides superior chemical resistance including gasoline, oil and de-icing salts.

Essex County Estate places Bomanite Topping system Broadcast Flake for two large garages for low maintenanceThe Bomanite Broadcast Flake System contains zero VOC’s and is a fast track flooring system that can be applied over prepared concrete and suitable cementitious toppings to form a seamless surface ideal for residential and light commercial applications such as garage floors, basements, indoor recreational facilities, schools and light manufacturing.

Various graphic designs or patterns, such as logos, family crests, homeowners’ initials, favorite sporting team emblems may be incorporated into a Bomanite Broadcast Flake System. Flake color blends are available in several sizes and custom flake colors such as metallic and fluorescent shades, glow in the dark and silver sparkle deliver unlimited creativity.

The Partially Concealed Grasscrete system provides a cobblestone decorative designed driveway for this Essex County EstateAfter working with Premier Concrete on the garage project and reviewing additional needs, the homeowner acquired Premier Concrete’s services for a Bomanite Pervious Concrete System. The homeowner wanted a pervious cobblestone driveway for the tradesmen estate entrance. The driveway needed to reflect the exterior design of the home and be able to handle storm water runoff.

Bomanite Grasscrete is the green alternative to standard concrete surfaces providing a variety of landscape solutions while maintaining a sustainable green product design used for emergency access lanes, delivery access routes, overflow parking areas, and for intermittent drainage channels that help prevent erosion.

Bomanite Pervious Concrete helps with Stormwater management for this Essex County EstateGrasscrete has been used as an exposed utilitarian product for functional applications and as a concealed system with vegetation such as grass or native ground cover installed over the concrete allowing consumers to mitigate drainage issues while maintaining strong structural integrity for some of the heaviest vehicles to operate unencumbered. The Partially Concealed Grasscrete System provides the differential spacing you see with cobblestones giving the homeowner the look desired.

Bomanite Pervious Concrete helps with Stormwater management for this Essex County EstateThe Grasscrete single-use molded pulp formers were shaped and laid on the sub grade at approx. 1,300 sq. ft. to create the access for the service vehicles. Concrete was poured and placed over the formers and then voids were opened after the concrete hardened, allowing for grass to be planted.  Grasscrete offers the ability to provide year-round access for a variety of applications requiring structural paving surfaces without compromising the aesthetics of the exterior landscaping.

Premier Concrete Construction received Silver Awards for both the Best Bomanite Grasscrete Project and Best Bomanite Toppings Project.

The office complexes at 16845 Von Karman Ave, Irvine California received an emergency vehicle access area that uses the Bomanite Grasscrete System. Bomanite Licensed contractor, T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc. worked with Wolcott Architecture to select the sustainable pervious concrete system that would work best with the intended use for the commercial development property.

Bomanite Grasscrete Partially Concealed Pervious Concrete System is Installed by TB Penick as an Emergency Vehicle Access for Office Complex in Irvine CaliforniaThe Partially Concealed Grasscrete System is engineered to provide long-term durability, low maintenance and structural strength. Access around or to buildings for fire trucks or other emergency vehicles are typically concealed with grass and defined with curbs, bollards or landscaping to complement the design of the structures and walkways. The Partially concealed Grasscrete emergency fire truck lane creates a walkway between buildings providing greenspace for employees.

Bomanite Grasscrete Partially Concealed Pervious Concrete System is Installed by TB Penick as an Emergency Vehicle Access for Office Complex in Irvine CaliforniaGrasscrete, pervious concrete, constructed with one time use formers is time proven. Because of its structural integrity and continuous reinforcing, Grasscrete is not subject to the differential settlement that can occur with precast blocks and thin plastic products. The combination of concrete, steel and aggregate interlock ensures that Grasscrete can bear isolated loads; such as downriggers placed in an emergency situation with no support blocks. The robustness of the system minimizes the potential for failure during critical use.

Bomanite Grasscrete Partially Concealed Pervious Concrete System is Installed by TB Penick as an Emergency Vehicle Access for Office Complex in Irvine CaliforniaThe sustainable Grasscrete Molded Pulp Former System, used for the office complex project, has been engineered and field proven to bear the continuous weight of up to 114,000 pound vehicles along with such customized applications as military tank use or light speed rail track access– even when the sub-base becomes saturated making this ideal for this Emergency Access area.

Bomanite Licensee, Beyond Concrete, was called upon to help with the Landscape Architects street design for the new World Trade Center Tower Two. The plan called for a street design with sitting area located between the two towers, connecting the next to be constructed Tower Two, and the newly finished Tower One.

Two World Trade Center connects with One World Trade Center using Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Alloy Systems for the decorative street design and sitting area installed by Beyond ConcreteBeing that this project was the World Trade Center rebuild security was top notch during the installation. Working at the site required daily security passes for all Beyond Concrete’s crew members. It took as much as two hours each day to go through the security checks, lunch breaks required the General Contractor, Posillico Civil, Inc. to provide an escort so the Beyond Concrete team could return to the work area.

The theme of the design was to have the overall tone set in the gray family, starting from light gray at the building line and transitioning to dark gray by the street area. The project design consisted of approximately 7200 sq. ft. of 7” thick, epoxy reinforced concrete, poured in five twelve-foot-wide strips, each strip approximately 120 feet long. The 12 ft. wide strips were divided into 12’ x 12’ squares and saw cut into 3’ x 6’ rectangles for dimension and style.

Two World Trade Center connects with One World Trade Center using Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Alloy Systems for the decorative street design and sitting area installed by Beyond ConcreteThe World Trade Center Tower project required multiple samples and conversations with the architect given the complexity of design and the various pour thicknesses the site dictated. The original request was for the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Sandscape Texture System in five different shades of gray to be installed in sequence, exposing local sands within the integrally colored concrete.

It was determined that in order to have a consistent appearance there needed to be two processes used on site to accommodate the conditions that both resulted in the same finish. A bonded overlay for thinner sections and an unbonded topping slab for thicker. Once the process was determined and the architect saw the more decorative Bomanite Alloy finishes, the decision to use the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Alloy System was clearly the best choice.

Some sections of the installation required priming and a mortar bed that was slurry overlayed with Bomanite Alloy Color Hardener. The standard areas used conventional concrete with the Bomanite Alloy Color Hardener applied in a traditional dry-shake fashion. All areas received the same final finishing and exposure of the fine reflective aggregates contained within the Alloy.  The color started with Bomanite Nickel Gray Alloy and progressed towards the street with Shale Gray, Castle Gray, Coal Gray and ended with Cobblestone Gray.

Beyond Concrete achieved the Architects vision with the best Bomanite Decorative Concrete System and in conjunction provided a low-maintenance, high wear resistant, architectural concrete finish for the 2 World Trade Center Tower Street Design. For their outstanding work, Beyond Concrete received the 2018 Best Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Project Bronze Award. Bomanite Decorative Concrete at its finest!

The General Contractor, J.E. Foster Building Company, contacted Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC about a new Starbucks Coffeehouse being built in the Brookside community of Kansas City. Starbucks was considering the incorporation of new flooring material in a prototype store.

Starbucks design studios are located around the world so that their designers can fully understand the communities they serve. The mission of each designer is to create a spectacular Starbucks café experience that is steeped in the local culture and reflects the unique characteristics of each neighborhood.

Starbucks Coffeehouse Brookside Creates Community Design with Bomanite Modena SL Polished Concrete Floors in Kansas City installed by Musselman and HallStarbucks believes a coffeehouse should be a welcoming, inviting and familiar place for people to connect, so they design their stores to reflect the unique character of the neighborhoods they serve. They are also interested in the way design can connect everyone to sustainable building practices and provoke thoughtful questions and engagement with the built environment. To guide their building and design efforts, Starbucks uses the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® certification program as a benchmark for success.  In addition to reducing energy and water consumption, they incorporate reused and recycled materials wherever possible and often use locally inspired design details and materials in their stores.

After some research and several references, the general contractor worked with the local contractor Musselman & Hall for assistance. Based on a tile sample provided by the Starbucks design team and an overall design concept, Musselman & Hall produced a series of Bomanite Custom Polishing Modena SL samples for the client’s consideration. The samples immediately impressed the Starbucks staff.

Starbucks Coffeehouse Brookside Creates Community Design with Bomanite Modena SL Polished Concrete Floors in Kansas City installed by Musselman and HallThe Modena System, unique to Bomanite, is a trowel applied cementitious overlay that contains zero VOC and no solvents in the chemically hardening product with attributes to its “Low-Emitting Materials” LEED credits. Modena is polished to a highly durable finish and is commonly used to renovate floors that are unacceptable candidates for polished concrete. It can be applied as thin as 1/8” or as thick as ¾” dependent upon existing elevations. Modena can be either highly decorative with aggregate exposure or simpler with light aggregate exposure similar to finely ground concrete.

The Modena system contributes to additional LEED accrual points in “Innovation by Design” by its ability to renovate an existing concrete slab that would otherwise be unsuitable for concrete polishing. This provides specifiers the ability to use polished concrete much as they would traditionally select a manufactured tile or other flooring system only without the maintenance requirements. Bomanite Modena is more economical than typical terrazzo, is breathable which minimizes moisture vapor issues, can be colored in any color, lessens the amount of product brought to a jobsite compared to stone or tile and provides all the benefits of polished concrete.

The relatively small project (600 SF) utilized the Bomanite Nickel Gray Integrally Colored Bomanite Modena SL system. The polished overlay was placed at approximately ½” thick. The overlay was ground and polished to a 400-grit finish. Musselman & Hall coordinated with Starbucks artist who utilized a portion of the floor as a canvas to paint a fun and colorful mural. This is the first Starbucks location in the region to utilize the Bomanite Custom Polishing Modena SL flooring system.

The finished floor is a simple, but elegant representation of the design flexibility of decorative architectural concrete and Bomanite’s diverse sustainable offering of floor systems.

The Clovis Community Medical Center has a newly built Cancer Institute. California’s Central Valley cancer patients no longer need to travel across the state to receive optimal care. The quality of care offered at the $68 million Community Medical Cancer Institute is superior to any other center currently offered in the state of California and rivals prestigious cancer treatment facilities on the East Coast, according to Dr. Kenneth Forster, the Chief of Medical Physics for Community Medical Center.

What makes the Clovis Cancer Institute remarkable is it’s high-tech and patient-centric upgrades. State of the art PET/CT machines, rare hi-tech MRI machine which is 1 of 6 in total throughout the United States that caters to the claustrophobic patient, Cyberknife and Varian TrueBeam technology for precise treatment with less side effects can be found at this cutting edge facility.

The Clovis Community Medical Center strived to make the patients treatments as comfortable and convenient as possible. The overall aesthetics of the building inside and out make a difference. On a clear day, patients visiting the infusion center can see the beautiful Sierra Mountains along with a view of the Cancer Institutes desert landscaping on outdoor balconies and the base of the building. Colored decorative concrete walkways, outdoor dining areas, mood lighting, green space and a soothing water feature complete the layout.

Heritage Bomanite had the pleasure of being involved in creating elements of the landscape designed by Terry Broussard & Associates. Working with Vineyard Pools, Heritage Bomanite built the water fountain by forming all the walls, sourcing the hard to locate epoxy coated rebar and poured the Bomanite integrally colored concrete. Bomanite Integral Colors consist of colored admixtures and are developed for use in ready-mixed concrete or cementitious toppings. Color added into the mix (white or gray-based cement) is uniform throughout the depth of the concrete, producing durability and longevity of color as the concrete wears the color remains. The product is made of the highest quality pigments, as well as other ingredients designed to enhance the color and improve the pigment dispersion, workability and finishing performance of the concrete. Bomanite Integral Colors can be used with the installation of Bomanite and Bomacron cast-in-place colored, textured and imprinted concrete paving and flooring or utilized for other colored concrete flatwork applications (trowel finishes, salt finishes, broom finishes, rotary finishes), as well as vertical surfaces and other types of architectural concrete. The Bomanite Coloration Systems finish for the fountain was smooth troweled. The brass letters surrounding the top of the fountain remind everyone that Every Moment Matters.

Heritage Bomanite was awarded the 2018 Best Bomanite Specialty Project Gold Award for their purposeful work on the Clovis Cancer Institute Water Fountain.

Connecticut Bomanite Licensee worked with Hoffman Architects and the general contractor Downes Construction to install several Bomanite Imprint System Patterns throughout the pavilion of the commercial buildings located in Hartford, CT.

Connecticut Tower Plaza Receives Bomanite Imprinted Concrete Renovation of Old Paver System Creating Walkways and Pedestrian Bridge with Bomanite Basketweave Brick and Bomacron Medium Ashlar Slate patterns

With little over an acre, the Bomanite Basketweave Brick Pattern (no texture) and Bomacron Medium Ashlar Slate pattern were installed with the traditional Bomanite Color Hardener and Releases to provide durablity, excellent wear resistance and fade resistance. Bomanite Color Hardener is the most effective coloring method to achieve your desired results in the installation of Bomanite and Bomacron Imprinted concrete surfaces.

This large project took over 73 concrete pours to complete a total of 46,574 square feet. The plaza and Pedestrian Bridge required replacement of the paving, drains, lighting and waterproofing and modification of the existing guardrail to make it code compliant. Hoffmann Architects were retained to redesign the plaza, addressing structural and functional concerns. Design professionals provided conceptual design development, schematic design, contract documents, and construction administration services for a full plaza and pedestrian bridge reconstruction, from waterproofing and paving to lighting and seating.

Built by Coloradans, for Coloradans. The Coloradan, a mixed-use luxury condominium development at Denver Union Station sits in a prime location. It offers a place for residents to live, work, and play.  The layout of the outdoor spaces reflects the idea that the Coloradan is built for people who enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle but do not want to give up the quality of urban living. The project features restaurants and retail at the ground floor as well as three amenity decks for the residents. Landscape Architect, Dig Studio designed the ground level streetscape to integrate and enhance the existing rail terminal. The 5th-floor amenity deck serves private terraces as well as a community garden, which features a harvest table, sink, and serving area alongside an orchard of fruit bearing trees. The 18th floor houses the community fire pit and pool deck; the heated lap pool and spa allow residents to enjoy Colorado’s weather all year long.

The Coloradan Outdoor Spaces Incorporate Bomanite Micro-Top ST a sand finish that is durable weather resistant and installed by Colorado HardscapesLong-term success depends on providing value that extends beyond merely doing on time/on budget work. When the general contractor, GE Johnson, began subcontracting the 19-story Coloradan, Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes proposed an achievable price and schedule on the decorative concrete scope of work, however they lost to a lower bidder.

Months later, GE Johnson, called to inquire about Colorado Hardscape’s ability to take on the project for The Coloradan planters and seat walls that would be placed in three separate rooftop lounges because the low bidder backed out of the obligation. Assessing the contractors already advancing critical path schedule, Colorado Hardscapes determined that they simply wouldn’t be able to complete the specified decorative concrete scope in the time available that would meet everyone’s satisfaction. Never willing to simply walk away from a great opportunity to build better relationships, Colorado Hardscapes proposed an achievable alternative that worked with the schedule and corresponded with the architectural intent proposed by Dig Studio.

The Coloradan Outdoor Spaces Incorporate Bomanite Micro-Top ST a sand finish that is durable weather resistant and installed by Colorado HardscapesThe general contractor poured the uncolored, form-finished concrete walls using their own forces. Thirty days later, Colorado Hardscapes crew applied Bomanite Topping System Micro-Top ST as an overlay. At just 20 mils-thick, the Bomanite Micro-Top ST coating would be negatively affected by any imperfections in the substrate material, consequently, grinding and patching the form-finished concrete walls until they were completely smooth was imperative. Bomanite Micro-Top ST has excellent adhesion and weather resistance that is perfect for applying over almost any clean, correctly prepared and primed surface including concrete, cement block, tile, metal and wood. Using hopper-applied products, Colorado Hardscapes delivered a sand-finished surface that appears nearly identical to the original specification. Colorado Hardscapes was able to think outside of the box with solutions that met the builder, owner and project designer needs and exceeded their expectations.

The homeowners of this large backyard lot recognized the possibilities that could provide them with outdoor spaces for dining, entertaining, and relaxing using multiple Bomanite Concrete Systems throughout this welcoming resort like space.

Backyard Landscaped and Designed with Bomanite Concrete Systems, Exposed Aggregate, Bomanite Revealed, Bomanite Antico Process, Bomanite Imprinted Concrete, Bomanite Thin-Set Overlay creating entertaining spaces, courtyards, pool decks and cabanas

Bomanite Licensee, Concrete Arts, Inc. being the homeowner, wanted a place for his family that showed the creativity and beauty of concrete and its endless possibilities. Working with Landscape designer Mark Huri early on helped with the transformation. From his experience, Huri knew that with the right layout and a small bit of terracing, it could provide an opportunity to stylize a very special retreat. The design incorporated a full-size pool deck, cabana, courtyard and waterfall feature.

As you step out the back of the house, you have a BBQ and dining area to catch some great sunsets. At the next level you are greeted with an infinity water feature that cascades down to the main entertaining area creating a beautiful waterfall, providing that serenity of being in the great outdoors. The steps and landing leading to the main area are cast-in-place concrete treated with the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Revealed System that is also used throughout the courtyard and pool deck.

The steps are encompassed by unique hand carved, embossed cast-in-place concrete retaining walls that are 12-14” thick with top caps done with the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Antico Process System that is seeded with fine glass to add a bit of sparkle. The Antico Process works well with lighter colors that are often used for pool decks and other areas where light reflectivity is desired and is comparable in appearance to natural travertine or manufactured cast stone, a perfect complement to the retaining walls. The wall stone sizes and coloration were chosen to resemble European Castles and provide an old-world charm backdrop for the complete space.

As you step down into the courtyard, slabs of White Bomanite Revealed were cast and surrounded with planting pockets and inlays of grass. The strips of grass help with drainage and break up the expanse of concrete, while providing warmth to an outdoor living space, to enjoy a rushing waterfall and cozy fire pit, for full relaxation.

Designing so that each area has a different function maximizes space and use. The Cabana offers a place of protection from inclement weather and brings the feeling of family gathering in the kitchen. It includes a fridge, gas fireplace and flat screen TV. Perfect elements for a perfect cozy getaway or summertime party. The cast-in-place concrete countertop was created with a 4” edge and overhang. The surface was hand applied with Bomanite Color Hardeners for additional strength and durability while picking up the hue of the retaining walls. It was then textured to resemble natural stone with real stone pieces embedded on the corners for a decorative element.

The Interior Cabana floor was created with the Bomanite Imprinted Concrete System using an Integral gray color, stamped with the Bomacron Slate Texture pattern and then antiqued and color washed in a darker gray. The Cabana walls consisted of the Bomanite Topping Systems Overlay – Bomanite Thin-Set, which was vertically embossed and textured to resemble wood plank using the Bomacron 11 ½” Boardwalk pattern. The apex of the walls utilized a carved plaster and created relief of over 3” in some areas and embossed to resemble a cleft stone, all done in a natural gray to compliment the flooring. Family and friends can enjoy conversation, food, a book or a swim in the great pool.

The pool deck and its coping utilized the Bomanite Revealed System to provide increased surface and slip resistance, a benefit when using the Exposed Aggregate System.  A White Base, hand seeded with Georgia white marble in two sizes and then exposed, produced the surrounding deck that brings light and coolness on a very hot 100 degree summer day. Bomanite Revealed is available in light-reflective formulations reducing heat island effect, making the pool deck walkable and not hot to the touch.
