Architectural Grey Polished Concrete
Industrial/Architectural Finish to Custom Concrete Mix Design
Project Location: Sorrento, Western Australia
Polishing Contractor: DS Grinding, Clarkson, Western Australia
Amount of polished concrete: 150m2
The Project Scope
The whitest floor possible with light grey and white quartz aggregate polished with full stone exposure.
The project required a full gloss, hardened and mechanically polished white concrete floor.
How it came together?
The custom mix for this project, known as Architectural Grey, was designed in collaboration between decorative concrete supplier Limecrete and DS Grinding. A key aspect of the design was to eliminate yellowing, which is a common occurrence with concrete floors in Perth. The result was a uniform, low maintenance grey polished concrete mix.
Placement of the concrete was undertaken by Steven Bates Concrete. A focus of the placement was to maximise the pour area to reduce the need for joining pours. All window and door rebate areas were set to allow the transitions to sit flush with the finished polished concrete floor.
The initial stage of the polishing process involved creation of the canvas for minimal exposure, as requested by the client prior to block-wall construction. This enabled the client to choose their desired level of exposure before polishing. Protective custom colour-matched grout was placed to protect the floor during heavy construction.
Caution was required for the exposed blockwork during polishing, due to its porosity and fragility around heavier grinding machinery. At this stage, the client was also able to select their desired level of sheen. DS Grinding moved up in the grit stages to achieve the exact sheen before applying the penetrating sealant.
The result of this project is a stunning, uniform grey polished concrete floor. Please have a look at the gallery to view the completed job and see the results for yourself.
