2015 Education Winner
This was the first school to roll out after years of educating the architecture firm of the benefits and "blank canvas" polished concrete offers. The design that the architecture firm came up with was highly decorative and the construction schedule was tight, as all are these days. Elegant Concrete Polishing recommeded that while the building was wide open to perform a "pre-grind" with 40 grit metal bond diamonds, as it would give the finihshed product a more finished and clean look.
When Elegant Concrete Polishing returned to complete the polishing/design process, the project was in full swing and other trades occupied the majority of the builiding. The general contractor on this project was concerned with delivering this highly decorative project to the owner with all that was going on. The GC saw the benefit of having Elegant Concrete Polishing "drive the boat" in helping the other trades move through the building. Elegant was given 3,000 SF areas at a time and had crews grinding, honing and saw cutting the design.
Then another crew following them installing the Ameripolish SureLock Dye and Hardener/Guard System and polishing the floor to a 1500 grit. Once the finished areas were turned over, typically 3 days, Elegant protected the finished floors and then the other trades came through to finish the areas. With the design intent and the craftsmanship of Elegant, the project came together and turned out looking fantastic!
