Out of this World!

Moscow 1996, we were contracted to install a resin terrazzo floor and entrance hall containing the Planet Hollywood logo. Raw materials were sent to site and each batch, containing up to nine aggregates was carefully blended and laid. The work also involved the casting of contoured stairs, and was declared a "Great Success" by Planet Hollywoods Vice President, who inspected the finished project (the biggest outside the USA).

Floor Divider Strip Layout

From a standing start, the concrete was prepared by dustless shotblasting, and the brass divider strips laid out in accordance with the Architects drawings. To prevent run-through of coloured resins at Brass Strip joints, it was essential that joint were perfect.

Installation of Red Resin

The red coloured resin strips were trowelled down. Each mix contained nine seperate components, including coloured glass chippings, two marbles, two granites, and powders. Great care was required to measure individual constituents correctly, to ensure a uniform output.
