Terrazzo Contractor
David Allen Company
Raleigh, NC

The sophisticated, energized floor pattern on this 28,500-square-foot project symbolizes electronic impulses. Lively yet contained, the design harmonizes with the space, taking its cue from the architecture. The contractor succeeded in producing consistently sharp corners on the unique, floating stairway, an extremely difficult challenge of the job. The three stairs, poured-in-place on a radius, flow into the monumental self-supported treads and post-poured stainless steel inserts. Terrazzo is built to withstand the high volume of foot traffic and vehicles moving industrial materials through the public circulation areas.
