“Making the Complex Simple”
Nearly 15 years of thoughtful research and field work have gone into making Green Umbrella’s environmental team Systems approach to Architectural concrete design. With so many components possible on each concrete project, we have made the complex simple by creating “Architectural Concrete Floor Systems” based on clear product value statements.
A successful concrete project, like a good book or movie, has a good beginning, middle and end.
The Consultant who takes the initiative to understand your specific project needs and can produce a solutions driven specification that includes only what is necessary and eliminates waste, both in products and time.
Our goal is your goal: the best concrete CANVAS comprised of quality, lasting, proven components that reduce or eliminate cracking, curling and other structural and visual issues.
If true ‘architectural concrete’ is your end goal, the final product should be free of footprints, trowel marks and other imperfections, how so? A PROCESS Green Umbrella recommends is the innovative integrally troweled concrete and a wet abrasive cut using liquid cutting agents. How the concrete is worked will impact whether the concrete will work. It is critical to incorporate best concrete practice.
Whether concrete TREATMENTS and products are introduced at the batch plant, on the day of placement, or decades later during a GHP (Grind. Hone. Polish) process, they should work together. A family approach to concrete treatments leads to consistent, problem-reducing results.
When specifying any concrete slab or any concrete surface that will be mechanically polished, the better the EQUIPMENT the better the finished floor will be. Ride-on power trowels generate high RPM and the needed weight to consolidate concrete surfaces. Propane Grinders freely cut wet, preserving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and process the surface in a superior fashion with a higher production rate.
In the end, the awarded CRAFTSMAN will make the dream a reality. Through a conscientious desire to produce quality work that shows respect for the environment. A trained and certified Green Umbrella Craftsman sees to it that regardless of the challenges faced on each unique project, the concrete will be the highest quality possible.
