Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about sustainable materials and renewable resources. Founded in 2008, Sungevity is a leading name in solar panels. With more than 200 days of sunshine a year, Kansas City was a natural choice for their newest location. When they opened their office here in May 2015, we were ready to welcome them with a green flooring solution.
Polished concrete was chosen as the environmentally responsible flooring for their office. Reusing the existing concrete slab, we mechanically polished and applied a topical sealer to 3,000 square feet of existing concrete, making it stain resistant and improving durability.
The high-gloss finish on these polished concrete floors reflects the abundant natural light while blending into the sleek, modern look Sungevity was going for in their new downtown office. It also decreases the energy requirements in the space. Additionally, the polished concrete floors contributed toward LEED certification by dematerializing the project & reducing airborne VOCS.
