2012 Job of the Year


Terrazzo Contractor
Grazzini Brothers & Company
Eagan, MN

This terrazzo floor is a destination in itself, as its stunning visuals transport resort guests to the Dark Continent.  Installed over an existing stained concrete floor, which had been a constant challenge to maintain, epoxy terrazzo was specified for its design capabilities, durability and ease of maintenance.  A giraffe herd, a male lion, bull elephants, a flock of flamingoes, and zebras in motion, all life-sized, are depicted in their natural habitats, using over 40 colors of tinted resin combined with marble aggregates, clear resin, torpedo sand, glass, and mother-of-pearl.  From a 29-foot compass featuring a breathtaking elephant at each of its points ushering guests into the lobby, to windswept desert sand recreated in shades of terrazzo, to a river rock bed pathway guiding guests through the lobby, it is a floor like no other.
