The timeless, simple elegance of this two-color terrazzo design sets the stage for breathtaking views of the downtown skyline and the bay, visible through floor-to-ceiling windows.  Impressive in scope and execution, this federal courthouse installation boasts 80,000 square feet of traditional, sand cushion cement terrazzo in the public areas, including elevator lobbies, hallways, and  restrooms of the 17-story structure, all with poured-in-place base. In addition, over 10,000 square feet of epoxy terrazzo was used in the facility’s detention areas, for ease of maintenance.
