The centerpiece of this 10,000-square-foot epoxy terrazzo installation is the detailed and accurately scaled state map located in the lobby. The three contrasting colors all incorporate 100 percent recycled concrete aggregate, resulting in warm, earthy tones and texture. Zinc and brass divider strips were selected to form the intricate shoreline and highlight specific features on the map. To support a radiant heat system in the slab, expansion joints were introduced into the terrazzo. The expansion joints were placed so as to not detract from the intent of the design.
