2020 DCC Award Winner
South Christian High School, Burgess Concrete Construction
First Place: Polished Concrete & Overlays, Over 5,000 SF
The new South Christian High School knew it wanted polished concrete floors for low maintenance and sustainability. Burgess Concrete Construction worked with Grand Rapids Gravel to create a consistent mix for the 45,000-square-foot project, using concrete not only for the floors, but also for steps, a staircase, seats, and walls.
Burgess received poured steps, then hand-ground each one before installing. The team also placed and polished around a steel inlay. The inlay serves as an anchor point at one of the building’s entrances.
