Terrazzo Contractor
David Allen Company
Raleigh, NC

Because the timber and masonry structure’s original wood joists were close to a century old, the terrazzo contractor’s first task was to correct the flooring transitions and construct an independent floating slab with epoxy fill, reinforced with one-quarter inch wire mesh, to allow weight to be distributed to the rest of the floor without cracking the surface. The design intent, to replicate with epoxy terrazzo the style of a 1920’s-era floor pattern, is the perfect solution for the space. The art and beauty of the 1,800-square-foot floor is set in motion by the exact symmetry of the diamond pattern.
