Terrazzo Contractor
North American Terrazzo, Inc.
Seattle, WA

This century-old courthouse with its 20,000 square feet of geometrically patterned cementitious terrazzo, marble mosaics and solid marble borders is now fully restored. This project is a testament to the value of terrazzo craftsmanship and the longevity of terrazzo itself. Painstaking care was given on this LEED Platinum-certified project to preserve existing mosaics and original materials. The contractor matched matrix colors and old aggregates with new materials, recreating missing pieces by hand out of old stone or epoxy, while maintaining the appearance of the original. All areas were then lightly refinished and resealed.
