For over 30 years, The Richards Group has produced award-winning advertising campaigns for some of the most recognizable brands in the world. Earlier this year, the advertising giant and its staff of 670 moved into the new The Richards Group building near downtown Dallas.
Initially Texas Bomanite was called in to polish only the lobby floor, however, after seeing the finished product, the owner decided to incorporate the polished concrete into the common areas on all floors. This substantially increased the scope of our work, as it added 8 additional floors to our workload. The project was well underway at the time of this decision, so we agreed to build the work in 2 phases so that the General Contractor’s established schedule could remain intact. This sequencing also allowed for minimal disruption of other TB projects. This phasing required us to do the first part of our work prior to the installation of the exterior curtain wall and since we were working on floors 11-18, made for some very exciting views!
In total, over 70,405 SF were polished to a 1500 grit finish with salt and pepper aggregate exposure using the RetroPlate System. The entire project took 6,000+ man hours.
We were so grateful to work with General Contractors, Manhattan Construction Company on this project. They were extremely accommodating which resulted in a near flawless floor that was finished under budget. The architects on this project were Perkins + Will, with the additional help of The Richards Group owner and founder, Stan Richards.
