Terrazzo is an ancient art form.
For thousands of years, artisans have crafted beautiful flooring
from crushed marble and Portland Cement. Its colors, styles and textures stimulate the mind.
Steward Mellon has ample experience in precast, cement, and epoxy thin-bed terrazzo applications. Share your vision with us, we’ll help you build it.

what is terrazzo?
For many, many years, Terrazzo has been a poured-in-place aggregate of Portland Cement and marble chips. If Mother Nature created the stone, Steward-Mellon could incorporate it into their designs. Cement Terrazzo is perfect for durability in indoor and outdoor uses, and can be done on a budget.
Today, thin-bed Epoxy Terrazzo can be found in beautiful, new construction projects around the world. Steward-Mellon creates stunning, deeply colored designs by combining modern polymers with an artist’s palette of colored synthetics, glass chips, metals and other exotic aggregates. We’ll pour your intricate design work in almost any location.
If the job or location does not allow for considerable on-site construction, Steward-Mellon’s full service fabrication shop will precast your terrazzo. Then, our skilled and responsible craft workers will install the pieces on site. This technique is most often used for bars, countertops, baseboards, stair treads, and other applications where pouring terrazzo is extremely difficult
