The wow factor in an building lobby is difficult to achieve, but that is exactly the first impression you get in this new office building. Cypress Waters is centered around a serene 300-acre lake, that entails office, multi-family and retail waterfront developments and is just five minutes from the DFW International airport.
Cypress Waters is the newest 1,000-acre master-planned community to rise up in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The owners, Billingsley Co, wanted Cypress Waters to infuse waterfront living with the design principles of new urbanism and sustainable design. Their goal was to emphasize the benefits of a live / work community, and interconnect over 4.5 million square feet of office space with retail, parks, trails, and a lakeside town center.
Bomanite Licensee, Texas Bomanite was brought in by the General Contractor, Adolfson & Peterson Construction to polish and seal 4,500 square feet of interior concrete flooring in the lobby of the 225,000 square foot office building at 9111 Cypress Waters Blvd. Designed by GFF Architects, Texas Bomanite augmented the modern, sustainable design of the architecture by polishing the concrete to a 1,500 grit with a salt and pepper finish. Texas Bomanite utilized the Bomanite Custom Polishing VitraFlor system; which consisted of grinding, chemical hardening with Bomanite Stabilizer Pro, and honing and polishing with Bomanite VitraFinish.
Prior to the final installation of the project Texas Bomanite also provided a 100 square foot mock-up, which allowed the architects and General Contractors a solid idea of exactly what the finished product would look like. Even the results on plain concrete can be stunning. The Bomanite Custom Polishing VitraFlor system can be utilized on existing or new uncolored concrete.
Bomanite VitraFlor utilizes select un-colored concrete that is placed and finished to standards required for decorative polished concrete flooring. The concrete is ground to expose the desired amount of aggregate, then polished to the required gloss level and treated with a Bomanite stain resist. The primary benefit to Bomanite VitraFlor is the simplicity of installation and durability of the finished floor, lending to its low-maintenance and long-term sustainable features.
