There is a new Giant Bike store in Victoria that showcases a stunning black polished concrete floor and some amazing bikes! Tyson Schley has built a beautiful retail location at 631 Yates Street. The team at Stone Design are avid mountain bikers and highly recommend a visit into Giant Victoria to check out the floor and the great bikes. I have personally seen a close friend hit Whistler all summer on a Giant Reign II. This bike destroyed the Whistler Bike Park and surrounding trails.
The project was another great alliance with Strong Construction and Stone Design.
A commercial building can go through many different changes over the years. Layers of floor coverings tend to get piled on top of each other. When un earthing these many layers, there are usually plumbing cutouts, carpet tack strips and different levels that need to be patched, flattened and blended.
This particular floor started out with 16 grit metal bond diamonds for a really aggressive cut to remove glues, adhesives, and other floor coatings. The floor was polished to 100 grit resin diamonds and a black dye was applied. At this point the floor was densified, polished to 800 and finished.
