Google Gets Extraordinary Polished Concrete Floor

The latest addition to our portfolio is a beautiful polished concrete floor for one of the most famous companies of our time. When Balfour Beatty Construction contacted us to do the work, it turned out we had already done three projects for this internet giant.

We’re proud to say that what began as an ordinary piece of concrete slab became a work of art for none other than Google!

The project included removing the carpet glue, patching holes, repairing damage, and applying a chemical densifier by RetroPlate. We then did a diamond grinding and polishing of the concrete floor to a medium gloss finish. To personalize it, Google’s original plan was to apply a sticker with their logo.

Turning a Polished Concrete Floor into a Work of Art

But ModernCrete’s VP of Operations, Chris Bishop, had a revolutionary idea that improved the final results. Instead of a decal applied to the top of the concrete floor, Chris suggested that we dye the concrete to match Google’s logo colors. After several rounds of testing in the ModernCrete test lab, Chris had perfected the colors.

“We are very happy with the way the floor turned out,” says Dan Bishop, President of ModernCrete. “Because we partner with high-end machine and tooling manufacturers such as Diamatic, we were able to turn this ordinary piece of concrete slab into a work of art!”

The beauty of a polished concrete floor creates an elegant finish to the decor. In this case, ModernCrete transformed a simple concrete floor into a polished, modern masterpiece.
