Design Notes: Resembling the beaches of Florida, Jacksonville International Airport Terminal Expansion has over 100 sea fossil themed glass mosaics embedded in the floor throughout the terminal. These mosaics were hand placed with clear epoxy, then pigmented resin was poured through each of the designs. For high traffic areas, a grand stylized wave flow design was used along with a hand broadcast blend of recycled glass and mother-of-pearl chips to represent the sun on white caps at the beach. This 225,000 square foot terrazzo installation was polished to a 3,000 grit finish to achieve its finishing touches giving the saying ‘Welcome to Sunny Florida’ a whole new meaning.
With terrazzo, the possibilities are endless. Let the floor be your canvas and bring terrazzo into your next project by contacting your Architectural Sales Consultant for assistance at 800.7.MARBLE or visit www.tmsupply.com.
