Customer: Volante Farms, Needham MA

 

Customer info and needs:
Volante Farms is a very well know farm, farm stand and deli. They have been in business for over a hundred years. They are a family owned business that takes pride in thier facility and product. They have an enormous following. The butiful enclosed building had been completely overhauled and expanded. It is an impressive facility. The general contractor had hired a local janitorial company to seal the decorative concrete floors. Unfortunately he used a product ment to be installed only outdoors. The product contaminated all of the foods in the building. The product also had a very bad smell that did not go away. The Volante decided to completely remove all the food from the building, even product that was nowhere mere the areas affected. Disposal of the product and choosing to close down was an enormous cost to the family. The Volante family cares deeply for its customers and wanted to insure that they would have a comfortable and safe shopping experience. They needed someone to remove the insisting coating without damaging the stained concrete or making too much dust. They also needed the concrete to be resealed in order to make sure there was no chance an fumes in the future. This work need to be completed in 7 days.

We specified re-cutting all the control joints. They were filled with the faulty product. Grind all the coating off the concrete floor. Fill the joints with backer rod and pigmented polyurea. Prime the concrete with a clear epoxy primer. Apply a mid-coat of a clear epoxy coating. Apply a height traffic, light stable urethane.

DUNKIN DONUTS

urethane flooring

Customer:  Dunkin Donuts CML, Ringold Georgia

Customers info and needs:  Dunkin Donuts has Central Manufacturing Locations, (CML), throughout the country. This location in Ringold Georgia will provide fresh baked goods to over 100 stores. The concrete on this project was brand new and in perfect shape. Dunkin Donuts requires that a urethane topping be installed prior to the equipment so the floor will be easy to clean, thermal shock resistant, antimicrobial, impact resistant and appealing to the eye. The production floor at this location was 24,000sf and had to be installed in less than 10 days.

Our recommendation:  We recommended a Tenant Coating’s Eco-Crete MF Urethane slurry. The floor would be ¼-inch thick and be topped with a high traffic urethane topcoat. We suggested cutting and caulking all of the expansion joints.

Our scope of work:

*Shot-blast floor to create the proper surface profile.

*Cut all joints and fill with a urethane patch mortar.

*Install a 6-inch urethane cove base.

*Pin rake apply the ½-inch urethane slurry.

*Broadcast a colored quartz aggregate to excess.

*Cut all joints and install backer rod and a polyurea caulking.

*Apply a 100% solids,  high performance urethane topcoat.

 

This project came out perfect and was completed 1 day early. The customer loved the floor.

This was the 4th CML we have installed for Dunkin Donuts.
