2020 DCC Award Winner
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Glossy Floors
First Place: Decorative Resinous Coatings, Under 5,000 SF
The owners of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino wanted a unique floor, and Glossy Floors delivered. Featuring 6,300 vinyl 45 rpm records secured in place with epoxy, the +2,800-square-foot floor was two years in the making.
Glossy Floors’ biggest challenge involved placing the records in a random pattern, as the clients didn’t want anything symmetrical. Two very challenging ramps also caused some hand wringing as the crew had to devise a way to keep the epoxy from flowing to the bottom. Applying multiple thin layers of epoxy did the trick.
Another challenge involved transitioning from the record-covered section to the metallic epoxy steps. The task seemed impossible but the installers prevailed.
