Occupying the first 21 levels of “One57” or “The Billionaire’s Building,” as it is popularly known, Park Hyatt’s flagship hotel on West 57th Street in New York City exudes a sophisticated ambiance with an extensive amount of Bianco Piove marble employed throughout its interior design.

Commercial Flooring Report: Vol. 90, № 1 (Concrete Curing Admixtures, Additives, and Topical Applications – Again)

 Volume: 90 |  Issue: 1 |  Download

Installing floor covering materials of any kind and floor preparation treatments such as leveling agents and feather finishes is challenging enough without impeding their effectiveness with a barrier. We’ve discussed before the use of Fly Ash in concrete and how, if in high enough quantity it can prevent anything from bonding or sticking to concrete substrates.

The flooring industry, and anyone else involved in flooring which includes the General Contractor, Architect, Designer, Facilities Managers and owners are facing another obstacle to successful floor covering installations due to the use of concrete admixtures, additives and topical applications.

Unfortunately this action has moved us from the frying pan into the fire. Worse yet a bill of goods on these systems are being sold to Architects and General Contractors and the systems are being written into the construction specs. This forces the flooring contractor to either install the flooring material and face imminent failure or not do so and face legal action.
