Exposition Park is a collection of world-class museums, educational and sport facilities and entertainment venues. It is more than just an urban park with outdoor recreational activities. Within the 160-acre campus, you can experience the fun of science, math and technology at the California Science Center, learn about the diverse cultural experience at the California African American Museum or explore natural and cultural worlds at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, or simply relax in the splendor of the City of Los Angeles Rose Garden.

The landmark Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum offers the excitement of world-class competition, and the Los Angeles Football Club Banc of California Stadium is the newest addition to the community that is all ready to host the 2028 Olympics.  Bomel Construction Company, Bomanite Licensee, was brought in by PCL Construction Services to install the fine details of the hardscape project list of the well-known prominent designer in the community, Studio-MLA. The building interior and exterior of the Banc of California had to stand up to its reputable counterparts.  Studio-MLA developed the exterior site design concept to blend into and complement the existing venues landscaping as well as provide a highly visual and intuitive fan experience. Working closely with the team owners, design team, and the surrounding communities, Bomel Construction Company helped Studio-MLA transform the 16-acre site into an iconic facility for world class sporting and entertainment events.

A series of entry plazas, pedestrian walkways, seat walls and stairs, over 150,000 square feet of hardscape, were planned to cultivate the fan arrival experience and contribute to the visual identity of the Stadium for the surrounding community. Studio-MLA’s design drew inspiration from the LAFC brand. The Northwest corner of the site stands out with a small platform – called the “flight wall” – wrapped in a unique texture that bridges old and new inspirations. Bomel Construction Company constructed the cast-in-place concrete wall with a “Fishscale” custom form-liner done with a gray Integral Color to achieve the statement art-inspired piece. This location being most proximate to the Coliseum is key as an entrance to the building as well as a focal point for park visitors.

Imbeds of Bomanite Stamped Concrete using the Bomacron 11.5” Boardwalk pattern in a contrasting gray color connects the two spaces as a short walkway and leads the fans from the deck seating to the entrance of the restaurant.

A publicly accessible rooftop terrace and garden over The Fields LA contains a large flexible event space that extends the Stadium Club Level lobby interior space to the outdoors. Fans can take advantage of the panoramic views over Expo Park. The terrace has been designed with a geometrical arrangement of pedestal pavers that are accentuated by a series of large trees set amid lineal planters adrift in crushed stone. Bomel Construction Company installed the gray Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Sandscape Texture finish to the lineal planters as well as the circular tree planters. The flexibility of both game day and non-game activities provide year-round engagement for the whole community.

The pedestrian entrances and walkways, throughout and around the LAFC Stadium predominately used the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Sandscape Texture System, allowing for low maintenance and a light buff color for solar reflectance benefit. Bands of the Bomanite Alloy Exposed Aggregate System were incorporated smartly in gray with Clear Glass Aggregate and Mirror Flakes that sparkle and catch visitor’s attention serving as line formations directing fans to the stadium entrances. Bomanite Sandscape Texture and Bomanite Alloy are both suited exceptionally well for exterior applications— anywhere that improved wear resistance for light- to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic combined with an architectural finish is necessary. Bomanite Decorative Concrete perfect for those 22,000 fans emerging in and out of a world class stadium.

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.
