When it was time to upgrade, the perfect choice for the owners of this grand estate in Essex county, Massachusetts, were several Bomanite systems they installed throughout their property. The estate contains a Barn and two garages, BBQ house, an indoor swimming pool, several patios and courtyards, plus a full indoor basketball court that doubles as a Hockey Rink.
Bomanite Licensee, Premier Concrete Construction, LLC was contacted by the owner to provide a solution to a badly poured concrete garage foundation. Premier Concrete Construction remedied the garage issue, and then installed the Bomanite Broadcast Flake Toppings System in a salt and pepper finish for two separate garage units combining a total of approx. 2,700 sq. ft. The transformation is stunning.
The homeowner wanted a durable flooring surface for luxury as well as off-road vehicles. 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.
The 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. Zero VOC’s means it is good for both the environment and living organisms, like humans.
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. 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.
After 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, be durable enough for heavy vehicles, 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. Grasscrete uses reinforcing rebar which allows it to meet all heavy traffic requirements.
Grasscrete 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.
The 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.
