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.

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 Great Wolf Lodge opened one of their latest resorts in Bloomington, MN. The Gensler Architect team was hired for the renovation project. With one of a kind entertainment options, Bomanite Licensee, Bulach Custom Rock (known for their work on themed projects) was able to provide 5,000 square feet of the specified flooring that matched the outdoor adventure theme. With the existing floor in place, Bulach Custom Rock came through with the Bomanite Thin-Set Stampable Overlay Toppings System in three different patterns that were used intersecting in multiple areas which provided some challenges for the layout.

The Great Wolf Adventure Park houses several non-water attractions, including the Rustic Ridge Rock Wall and the Howlers Peak Ropes Course, that guests embark on an invigorating, multi-level climbing challenge traversing over Oliver’s Mining Co. where they can search for keepsake gemstones. For the mining area Bulach Custom Rock created the look and feel of actual dirt with the Bomacron Erosion Series Dried Earth Texture and added pathways of stone with the Bomacron Small Sandstone pattern.

Additional activities include MagiQuest, the brand’s exclusive live-action adventure game where players follow clues and use interactive magic wands to discover relics and runes needed to defeat a fierce dragon. The Bomacron Fishscale Belgian Block pattern was used to create that old world feel of stone castles. The MagiQuest area was produced using the Bomanite Shale Gray Integral Color then utilizing a Bomanite Natural Gray Color Hardener wash before it was sealed.

The difficulty of the project was in both access and area control. Whereas multiple trades were utilizing the same spaces at the same time, Bulach Custom Rock installed all the stampable overlay during the overnight hours with the use of mostly temporary lighting. Due to Bomanite Thin-Set’s benefits of being trafficked quickly, Bulach Custom Rock was able to have the flooring installed on schedule.

Bomanite Thin-Set is a specially formulated polymer modified topping mix that will bond to any stable, structurally sound substrate. This unique system allows the installation of a thin, imprinted concrete topping when installed at 3/8″ thick and can be feathered to a zero edge that was helpful when the overlay needed to seamlessly match up to an existing tile floor entrance for the Great Wolf Lodge.

Bomanite Thin-Set is an extremely effective alternative to the demolition or remodel of an existing substrate, making it a perfect choice for the Great Wolf Lodge Renovation.

CUPS, a self-serve yogurt store chose Bomanite Micro-Top for its ability to provide custom colors and graphics that matched the cool vibe of the beach-themed store.  CUPS provides a guest experience that is very different from the normal yogurt bar or ice cream shop. Dance music with lighting and murals provide a club-like experience with an edgy vibe that draws crowds and celebrities.

In order to create a cool and inviting space, Bomanite Licensee Beyond Concrete, had to first remove the extensive existing glue and surface and do some much needed crack patching for the current retail space. Once the Bomanite Micro-Top overlay was in place Bomanite Hydrocoat sealer and Bomanite Interior Floor Finish were applied to provide the low-maintenance and protection needed for the day to day foot traffic.

Micro-Top by Bomanite, a is a cutting-edge technology, that uses a paper-thin concrete medium, that provides a coloration system like no other.  A troweled-on cementitious topping that tenaciously bonds to virtually any substrate provides a canvas where works of art are graphically produced, utilizing custom logos, unlimited graphics, swirls of color or marbleized hues to reach the perfect color combination.

Bomanite Con-Color is a tinted, non-toxic, odorless, hydrolyzed lithium quartz compound that penetrates into concrete and cementitious toppings, reacting to form a hard, abrasion resistant permanent crystalline structure. Bomanite Con-Color will allow the concrete or topping to breathe, permitting moisture vapor transmission, but retards the transfer of damaging and discoloring alkali materials. When applied to concrete, Bomanite Con-Color will provide variegated and translucent coloring effects without creating a film or coating that can be worn away. Bomanite Con-Color is a viable alternative to traditional acid-based stains when a larger color palette or ease of installation is required. Bomanite Con-Color is an excellent design choice for plazas, walkways, entertainment venues, graphical signs and vertical surfaces.

Advantages of Designing with Bomanite Con-Color
• Wide range of colors
• Compatible with all cementitious Bomanite systems
• Allows necessary vapor transmission
• Eliminates dusting of concrete
• Increases concrete’s density at the surface
• Increases surface abrasion resistance
• Internal humidity stabilization
• No VOC/VOS content
• Permanent application
• Prevents free-moisture migration

Bomanite Con-Color offers the kind of versatility traditional concrete treatments can’t match and can be combined with our Imprint Systems, Toppings Systems,  Custom Polishing Systems or Exposed Aggregate Systems to create architectural concrete that is nothing short of breathtaking.

Capt. Petersen Splash Pad - Multiple Bomanite Color Hardeners

Capt. Petersen Splash Pad – Multiple Bomanite Color Hardeners

Bomanite Licensee, Harrington Bomanite Corp. installed multiple colors of Bomanite Color Hardener to give this splash pad a fun and entertaining feel. The splash pad at Watson Park was designed by Warner Larson Landscape Architects of Boston. Working with the Landscape Architect, Harrington Bomanite was able to suggest the best Bomanite products and system for the design to come alive. Bomanite Color Hardener provides the durability and strength needed to withstand climate changes.

The colorful, 4,000-square-foot play area in Watson Park, named after tugboat captain August J. Petersen, features mist sprayers, squirt guns and structures that spray water from the ground or dump it from overhead. Petersen was from Braintree whose generosity is legendary in the community. When he died in 1963, he left $65,000 to the town to build a swimming pool at Watson Park, a grassy recreational area on the bank of the Fore
River, in the neighborhood of East Braintree, where he had lived. For nearly half a century, residents squabbled over where the pool should go, while Petersen’s gift sat in the bank and grew to about $2 million.

Decades later, Petersen’s dream has been realized, at least in part. On April 2, Braintree officials broke ground on a “splash pad” at Watson Park that has been named after Petersen. The town is also planning to build a pool and ice rink in honor of Petersen at Braintree High School with the remainder of the money.
