Our recent Terrazzo project
By: Mark Naugle
Well, it's actually in a terrazzo floor. Steward-Mellon recently completed a terrazzo floor for the Lemon Bay High School gym entrance lobby. The imagery consists of the school mascot, a stylized manta ray.
The original artwork was replicated on CAD by our Chief Estimator/Project Manager, Kevin Gregorich. The design had color bleeds, a difficult effect to achieve in terrazzo. During our sample submittal process, we provided mock ups of the bleeds in the approved colors. Certain parts of the terrazzo were precast and waterjet cut to be placed in the field. Other areas were cast in place, including the color bleeds. Many thanks to Charlotte County Public Schools and Balfour Beatty Construction for the opportunity to do this great project!
