Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors worked with Kerkhover Studio Architects to develop a custom mascot logo for Harrisburg High School located in Harrisburg, IL. The original design called for a purple Integrally colored band with stamped letters to read “Harrisburg Bulldogs” surrounding an inner circle of stamped concrete in a brick pattern.

Several contractors provided pricing but could not provide acceptable proof of previous similar work experience, thus Musselman & Hall was contacted for their extensive work and ability to provide samples of design ideas and installed projects to show them. After the initial phone conversation with the project manager, Musselman & Hall set up a meeting with the team to review the original design and provide some new exciting modern options.

The team was so excited with the new options they chose to go with a Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Alloy System that involved a custom Harrisburg Mascot Purple Color Hardener and engraving of the text and mascot at the center.  The Team loved the design and the sparkle.

Bomanite Alloy is an architectural exposed concrete with varying exposure depths using non-native quartz and decorative aggregates that are surface seeded on concrete. Due to the use of Bomanite Color Hardener, Bomanite Alloy is well known for its highly durable surface. Bomanite Alloy also provides increased surface and slip resistance. Bomanite Alloy is suited for exterior applications— anywhere that improved wear resistance for light- to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic combined with an architectural finish is necessary, which makes it perfect for the exterior walkway of the Harrisburg High School.  The final product is a unique alternate to other decorative concrete finishes that the school staff and students will enjoy for many years to come.

MMGY, the largest integrated travel marketing organization in the world, and Lisa Jensen Design contacted Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors, for a decorative concrete flooring solution for the outdated, 800 square foot lobby of their office. The existing flooring was a worn cork flooring that showed wear and damaged from years of use.

The client wanted a “white polished concrete floor” and was looking for a thin overlay application to achieve the desired finish. The Bomanite Modena SL system was proposed with the production of finished samples for client review of the final color and finish.

Bomanite Modena SL is a polymer-modified, cementitious interior bonded floor topping that is blended with selected decorative aggregates then placed with no finishing. Once fully cured Bomanite Modena SL is ground to expose the aggregates and polished to the desired gloss level.

The project was a fast-track installation in order to keep a minimum disruption to their operation. Bomanite Modena SL may be lightly walked on 12 hours after placement providing a benefit for needed accelerated renovations. On a Thursday evening, prep began with removing the existing cork flooring, grinding the exposed concrete sub base, and applying Bomanite XP Primer with a sand broadcast. The next morning the Bomanite Modena SL integrally colored product was poured and size 0 and size 1 white terrazzo glass was blended into the overlay. On Saturday, the floor was polished and completed. The client was able to be back at work within 48 hours.

The finished floor is a gorgeous representative of Bomanite’s Modena SL system and the design flexibility of decorative architectural concrete. The Modena system transforms existing or worn surfaces into beautiful walkways, showrooms and lobbies and is available in a range of colors and patterns using decorative sawcuts. Additional topically applied stains and a variety of aggregates, such as recycled glass or porcelain along with regionally sourced materials, are all options in creating a beautifully designed, environmentally friendly and functional floor.
