2018 DCC Award Winner
First Presbyterian Church of St. Louis, Decorative Concrete Resurfacing
First Place: Stained / Under 5000 SF
What was once an outdated thick, heavy linoleum floor is now an updated church sanctuary. The church has their entire Leadership Board of 100 people originally involved in the decision. Once colors were approved, the board asked for touchups and slight color adjustments. It did involve a few extra days to restain but the church missed only one Sunday.
In addition to applying stain, the congregation envisioned a prayer walk feature. The prayer walk is a labyrinth which had to have a different color than the main floor, in a pattern that included detailed lines as pathways to walk in prayer and meditation. The design required taping two very exact measurements. The entire church was amazed by the transformation.
