In recent years, decorative concrete finishes have become the choice for a range of leisure projects both in the UK and around the world. From the largest theme parks to the smallest museums and public park commissions, the scope and creative options offered by decorative concrete professionals enables the practical installation and realisation of ideas from within the imagination of the designer.
For the 14th time, the judging panel for The Golden Trowel Awards reviewed a raft of entries from the decorative concrete industry and awarded the best entries with a coveted Golden Trowel trophy. The competition continues to grow, as does the use of decorative concrete for both domestic and commercial projects. John Grant of PICS reports.
Coloured concrete floors are attractive and distinctive, and can greatly improve the appearance of a building, as well as enhancing the branding of the organisation specifying the process. A steady increase in use over the past 30 years – for both domestic properties and large industrial units for manufacturing, warehousing and logistic industry companies such as Amazon and DHL – has meant that power-trowelling with dry-shake toppings is now commonplace. John Grant of PICS reports.
