Durite: Pre-cast Terrazzo Bathroom Vanity Tops
Construction Manager:
Pre-cast Terrazzo Bathroom Vanity Tops: The Union Square W-Hotel is a Landmark Building constructed originally in a Second Empire Style Architecture. This former Guardian Life Building was transformed and under gone major interior renovation. Designed by famed architect David Rockwell, the interior renovation incorporate modern, luxurious, environment that was sensitive to the building’s traditional architecture and the Union square neighborhood. Durite R&D worked with Rockwell Architects to develop an E-poxy based material that was highly attractive, none-cementatious, water-proof, tightly packed and esthetically resembling natural stone look, rather than widely used counter tops that resemble plastics. The final approved material was an E-poxy based binder, light peach in color mixed with medium sized mother-of-pearls, sea-shells, mixed with fine quartz and marble aggregates. A prototype of the vanity top was produced by DURITE for approval and use in 270 rooms. The vanity tops had to be cut based on sink templates oval-shaped under-mount sink, and pre-drilled holes for water faucet. The inner exposed edges around the sink had to be polished. Detailed bull-nose honing around exposed vanity edge and back-splash further enhanced the design. Durite’s cost-effective, highly stylized terrazzo vanity tops added glamour to the bathrooms and won the praised of all.
