Bomanite Featured Project

The Road to Mies Outland is Paved With Bomanite

When it came time for Mies Outland of Watkins, Minn. to do a major building expansion, they called on Bulach Construction, the Bomanite Licensed Contractor in Inver Grove Heights to provide a custom showroom floor. Bulach Construction worked in conjunction with the owners of Mies Outland and Welman Sperides Architects to make the expansion a reality and turn this showroom floor into a showpiece by itself. With the addition of more than 14,000 square feet of Bomanite imprinted and decorative concrete, Bulach Construction catapulted the Mies Outland display area from fine to fabulous.

The demands of this project made Bomanite the perfect choice for flooring in this huge indoor showroom, which was built attached to the existing showroom. Because of the versatility Bomanite brings, Bulach Construction was able to design the flooring to reflect the great outdoors, a theme rampant at Mies Outland. The new flooring mimicked stone, wood planks and even a street, all made out of concrete, and all under the same roof. To ensure the floor would be not only beautiful, but strong enough to withstand pedestrian and light vehicular traffic, Bomanite color hardeners were used throughout.

The flooring project began with pouring a four-riser bullnose step, which also utilized color hardener to color and harden them. A sponge finish was applied to add depth and interest. The remaining areas of the showroom boast three different Bomanite patterns, used in harmony to present an open, earthy atmosphere.
The first portion of the slab was stamped with a Wood Plank pattern. After this area cured out, several alcohol stains, developed by The Bomanite Company specifically for Bulach Construction, were applied to highlight individual boards.

The next area of the floor to be designed was the “street”, which was achieved by pouring a black integral colored floor with a smooth trowel finish. Bomanite Micro-Top, in white and yellow, was used to create road markings, making the indoor concrete “street” more realistic. The street divided the wood plank portion from the largest area of the floor, which was stamped with two Bomanite stone patterns and colored with several color hardeners. The final step in this unique project was to sandblast 12 individual logos into the floor.

This project is a good example of the way Bomanite Licensed Contractors go to great lengths to work with their clients, project architects and The Bomanite Company to provide custom flooring options sure to please even the most discriminating clientele.
