Cuviello Concrete and Terrazzo Polishing was awarded the Concrete Polishing work at Howard County Middle School in Hanover, MD by Chevy Chase Contractors. The architect is TCA located in Annapolis, MD and Howard County Public School System is the owner. The project is 23,250 square feet and includes cream cut areas and other areas with a sand aggregate cut and decorative dyed pattern throughout the corridors and cafeteria. All areas will be polished to a distinction of image (DOI) reading of 89 or higher. The polished concrete flooring will be one of the schools main attractions.
Cuviello Concrete is overseeing all of the concrete pours where the polished concrete flooring will be installed to ensure the finished concrete is the best possible finish for the polished concrete flooring application. This is the first project that Cuviello Concrete has been involved with where the concrete slab is being protected during construction, before the polishing process takes place. Typically the concrete is left exposed during construction, polished and protected.
One polished concrete mock up has been done and another will be done on November 6, 2014. The second polished concrete flooring mock up will have the same design as the first but with a different combination of colors and joint fill. It is anticipated that work will take 25 days to complete.
