School Goes Green with Polished Concrete

Article by ConcreteNetwork.com

“School Goes Green with Polished Concrete

Project Detail:
– Selected as one of the AIA/COTE Top Ten Green Projects in 2006.

– Light colored floor surfaces with maximum reflectivity were used to increase the amount of natural daylight.

– Concrete was used to improve indoor air quality.

Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Kirkland, Wash. has gone green with the addition of polished concrete. Here is a summary of the project:

Concrete was colored using a dry-shake color hardener which was incorporated into the surface shortly after the slab was poured.

After allowing the concrete to fully cure, a treatment was applied to the floor to improve density and reduce dusting.

The surface was then ground using the diamond grinding process.

Using the RetroPlate System, the floor was buffed and polished, creating a permanent shine and increasing concrete strength three to four times.

Finally a sealer was buffed into the suface.

Project cost was competitive with other flooring options.

Finished floor requires only hot mopping for cleaning.

Resists shoe scuff marks and stains.

Electric lighting needs were reduced due to the light color and reflective nature of the polished floors.

The final ground and polished concrete floor will outlast the floor coverings typically used in schools, such as carpet or vinyl” Boyd, 2012.

How to Glamorize Your Driveway Inexpensively

Look at the different ways you can make your driveway look more glamours by simply decorating your already existing concrete.  Read this article featured on ConcreteNetwork.com which explains the the procedure.

“Tile-Looking Driveway Achieved with Creative Staining and Sawcutting

One of the easiest ways to doll up an existing driveway is to cut decorative patterns into the concrete. On this project, designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene, sawcut borders and a square design, and then applied acid stains to instantly improve the curb appeal of this home.

“I like to use a variety of color,” explains Cohen, “so on this project, we used 3 or 4 varying shades of tans, browns, and charcoal acid stains.” Using a combination of Brickform stains and Triple S stains, Cohen layered one coat after another of the multiple colors. “The trick is to drench the concrete in color, first using mist bottles at ½ rate cut with water, then full rate,” he explains. “You want to cover the area with drops of one color, then layer the next color, etc. It’s kind of like how they print newspapers with multiple drops of ink.” Colors were chosen to complement the existing stucco and paint on the home.

The saw cuts were sized at 2’x 2′ squares imitating the look of tiles. “The neat thing was that the saw cuts allowed us to put a piece of plastic between each one so we could concentrate the stain just on one square at a time.” Cohen’s technique is to stain a base color on one square then move to another area with another color, then shield one square from the other. Doing so allows the squares to take on the appearance of being individually hand-colored tiles. A border was also cut into the concrete and stained a solid color.” (Cohen, 2012).
