The Hilton Anatole Hotel is a landmark that spans 45 lush acres in the Dallas Design District just north of downtown. The hotel was constructed in 1979. The hotel has over 1600 guest rooms, ballrooms, five dining venues, a spa and health club, outdoor pool and 7-acre private Sculpture Garden. The hotel is host to many events, conferences, and conventions. In 2015, Hilton broke ground on Jade Waters, a $20 million seasonal resort pool complex, utilizing 4 of the 7 acres of garden space. Jade Waters features a lazy river, two 180’ water slides, a children’s area and activity pool, leisure pool, swim-up bar and full-service restaurant. Cabanas and day beds are available in addition to the ample lounge seating. Jade Waters is exclusively for the use of hotel guests and health club members.

General Contractors, T&G Constructors, contacted Bomanite Licensee, Texas Bomanite in the Design Development phase of the project to work with Landscape Architecture firm TBG’s design team to provide finish options and budgeting to T&G Constructors. The hardscape portion of the project contains 60,000 square feet. Texas Bomanite provided Sample Boards of concrete finishes to TBG prior to full-size mockups being constructed on-site. Two finishes from the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems and three different colors were selected by TBG and Hilton from the jobsite mockups. The finishes were Bomanite Sandscape and Bomanite Sandscape Refined systems. The Bomanite Refined finish was also combined with a Bomanite Custom Imprint System to create a unique finish for the area of the project bounded by the Lazy River and referred to as the “Big Island”. This finish was also installed at the “Beach Entry” of the activity pool. The Imprint System combined with the Bomanite Sandscape finish simulates shifting sands on a beach.

Following approval of the mockups, the construction phase began. Due to unusually wet weather and soil conditions, the project had fallen behind schedule. T&G Constructors required an accelerated schedule to maintain the July opening date for the waterpark. This required crews to work six and seven day workweeks as well as holidays for several weeks. The congested site and wet soils presented another obstacle and required daily meetings with T&G Constructors Superintendents and their subcontractors for coordination of work areas as well as laydown areas. Texas Bomanite used recycled concrete fines in place of cushion sand to provide a better base on which to set forms and pour the concrete. Recycled concrete was also used to provide haul routes to get materials and equipment in and out of the site. The waterpark and garden opened in July of 2016 as scheduled.

The sustainable properties of Bomanite Sandscape Texture make it an excellent choice for environmentally conscious applications. Bomanite Sandscape Texture mix designs readily accept fly ash or slag or other supplementary cementitious materials, offsetting a portion of the ordinary portland cement. Urban heat island effect can be greatly reduced by thoughtfully designed installations. Third party independent testing has shown that Bomanite Sandscape Texture can exceed .29 solar reflectance without the use of white cement, allowing for the concrete to be cooler underfoot making it ideal for large urban plazas and pool deck applications.

The homeowners of a private residence in Sandy, Utah worked with Bomanite Licensee, Architectural Concrete & Design for their backyard pool and patio hardscape. This outdoor area has a pool deck, waterfall feature, fire pit, several patio spaces and stairs that received a cohesive decorative concrete design using the Bomanite Imprint System with several standout coloring techniques.

The pool deck and upper patio were poured and the concrete colored with Bomanite Coquina Color Hardener and then a sweat textured finish was applied. Once the color hardened concrete was cured, multiple coats of Bomanite Chemical Stain in Pine and Ebony were applied and then to create the grid design, sawcuts were made in a 4′ 6″ pattern. The pool coping and waterfall feature were stained to compliment the rock surround on the waterfall.

The lower patio deck, stairs and fire pit were stamped with the Bomacron Slate Texture mat to provide a simple separation but collective design with the pool deck area. Bomanite Desert Tan Color Hardener and several Bomanite Release Agents in Autumn Brown, Light Brown and Mexican Tile were applied.

The homeowners were thrilled with the overall Bomanite backyard design and how it complimented and integrated with the landscaping of rock walls, creek beds and walking paths.

Bomanite Imprint Licensee, Stephens and Smith Construction worked with the homeowner to select the overall design, patterns and colors for their patio and pool deck renovation. The homeowners existing concrete and stoops had a spray texture overlay and stenciled brick borders in a pinwheel design. The owners had seen stamped concrete and were interested in changing their deck and giving it a fresh new look.

Stephens and Smith demolished the existing deck and was able to dispose of all the rubble on site, saving the homeowner in disposal fees. The demo did take a few extra days due to the uneven real brick that was discovered under the overlay. Once all was removed, Stephens and Smith was able to regrade and place the concrete in four pours that had to be transported 160’ to 200’ due to the length of the driveway and expansive 20 acre lot. The concrete was stamped with the Bomacron Slate Texture and Bomacron 8” Used Brick Border for an updated clean and inviting backyard space.

Due to an issue with extensive epoxy bubbling and delamination, Central Unified School District located in Fresno, california was interested in removing and replacing a large portion of the existing pool deck around the competition,activity and receiving pools and replacing it with a solid surface with a non-slip finish.

Heritage Bomanite bid and won the job and proposed a Bomanite Sandscape finish due to its durability and
non-slip qualities. The district accepted Heritage Bomanite’s suggestion after examining the on-site samples that were poured. Work progressed for just under three months during which a wide array of work was completed, including the installation of over 13,000 SF of Bomanite Sandscape concrete with an exposed sand finish. The complete scope of work included the demolition and removal of the existing epoxy coated concrete, the installation of 550 LF of 2’ cantilevered nose around the competition pool, replacing the slot drains with 1045 LF of PolyCast drain with removable tops, the installation of 2600 LF of self leveling joint sealant and 84 LF of non-sag underwater joint sealant, the installation of all depth marker and water polo tiles, and the installation of over 90 anchors for various diving platforms, hand rails, and water polo goals and stanchions.
