Bomanite Featured Project

Ameristar Casino

Bomanite Licensed Contractor , Ahal Contracting, located in Pennridge, Missouri hit the jackpot with the "Outstanding Bomanite Project Worldwide Award" at the 2003 Annual Bomanite Project Awards Competition for their outstanding achievement in use of Bomanite products, quality of installation and technical difficulty.

Decorative Concrete comprises the floor finishes for over 40,000 sq. ft. of the newly completed entertainment facility, Ameristar Casino. Incorporating four richly colored patterns, imprinted concrete complements the vintage design of the Streetscape area. Bomanite patterns, including Bomacron Fishscale Granite Setts, Running Bond Used Brick, and a hand-tooled border between them, provided the versatility to cover diverse areas. In the elevator lobby, 1,200 sq. ft. of 1/2-in. stampable topping were placed using the Fishscale pattern. Over 12,000 sq. ft. of reactive stain finished floors enhance the Buffet and Sports Bar. Additionally, 70 sq. ft. of stained concrete countertops were installed in the AmeriSports Bar & Grill.

Challenges on the job were met with the expertise and cooperation of project principals. When difficulties arose keeping areas clean prior to pouring, especially after shot-blasting, due to the foot traffic of other trades, the general contractor made a special effort to coordinate work schedules. Breaking the 40,000 sq. ft. project into pour sizes ranging from 700 to 1,000 sq. ft., cement finishers scrupulously maintained layout lines to ensure that each pattern line remained straight and square throughout the streetscape. Such dedicated professionalism made possible the meeting of a fast-track schedule despite the interruption of numerous change orders.
