Architects

American is under pressure to build green, sustainable and cost effective,now more than ever. Faced with government mandates, building owner's demands and increasingly expensive resources, building must be cost effective and sustainable. Efforts to protect the environment need to have financial as well as social benefits.

Building projects with concrete floors offer a unique opportunity to owners to potentially earn points towards LEED-NC certification all the way up to Platinum. As well as giving owners and architects visually beautiful floors. Concrete flooring becomes the canvas upon which architects and owners can achieve a desired look and feel creating one of a kind floors. America is also rediscovering existing concrete slabs originally poured as sub floors. Who knew that underneath all that carpet, tile and wood flooring was possibly a undiscovered gem. In the hands of a compettent applicator concrete can achieve a high glose finish similar to terrazzo or less luster look similar to natural stone.

Not only stunning visual effects but offers custom tailored finishes, dramatic long-term maintenance cost reduction, increases relfelctivity of the floor and therby reduces lighting costs, does not trap in the escaping moisture as do coatings, tile, carpet and other floor covering uses no petroleum solvents making it environmentally friendly.

Approved by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFAI) and certfied as a High Traction Floor that complies with ADA and OSHA requuirements.

Concrete floors can remain seamless, or be designed with saw cuts, stains and colors on new pours can be integral or color can be applied after the pour or on exisiting floors, unusual aggregates such as marble or glass can be added, logo's can be incorporatged into the cement, terrazzo strips, can be used to add an interesting look. Concrete polish can work not only with your imagination but also your budget.

We at Green Earth Floors believe that while concrete polish began out west, New York and the East coast will become the showplace for uniqueness - with their older buildings whose interesting and unique sub floors may have been poured nearly a century ago - these older pours and buildings can produce a unique look and feel all their own and with the imagination and cuting edge designs of our northeast architects and designers it is an industry just beginning to take off.

Green Earth Floors has worked on many Museums, Galleries, Retail, Commercial, Industrial, Schools, Universities, Sport facilities, residential projects in the northeast all with the desired outcome and every project with the owner not just satisfied but meeting and exceeding their expectations.
