Terrazzo Contractor
Fountain Valley, CA

A well-designed response to the architecture, this terrazzo floor is at the forefront of sustainability and design. The 31,000 square-feet of 3/8” epoxy terrazzo follow a simple yet sophisticated design in three shades of gray and tastefully designates seating areas and walkways. The floor design continues up the main set of stairs in the LEED platinum building, connecting all three levels with a unique set of two-toned precast stairs. Three other sets of precast stairs, all different sizes and radiuses, flow from each area and level to the next, for a breathtaking continuous flow throughout.
