Flooring - we've got it covered

Floor coverings come in many forms. Masonry's design applications are attractive, green, and functional.

Three obvious examples are always on display at the BAC/IMI John J. Flynn Training Center in Maryland, which hosts everyone from pre-job apprentices to designers and contractors.

One of the first tasks for the center's floor covering was to be welcoming. The solution was terrazzo, which allowed for artful placement of our logo.

The concrete flooring, which emits no VOCs, allows for flexible turnover of training classes, plus special events that can bring heavy equipment and lots of foot traffic.

For the kitchen and bathrooms, the tile is so handsome and hard-working that we kept going right up the walls.

IMI can be an important part of a design team, offering both inspiration and practical advice on flooring solutions for your sustainable projects.
