Terrazzo Versatility
Presented By Gary French
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

The purpose of this presentation is to provide information which will be helpful in specifying terrazzo. The participants will gain an understanding of the various terrazzo systems and how terrazzo can be utilized in a variety of design applications.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Explain what terrazzo is, its rich history, and why it should be specified. It will give the definition, and list components. Endless color options and various aggregates will be discussed.
  2. Explore the green elements and sustainability of terrazzo. The original recycled flooring, terrazzo has proven to last over 100 years in buildings and survive hurricanes and flooding events.
  3. Discuss renovation of old buildings through the use of terrazzo and restoration of old terrazzo.
  4. Discuss the many forms terrazzo takes from floors to walls, stairs, curbs, and countertops in both interior and exterior settings. It will explain how a change in aggregate size can enhance the design. It will show how elements like LED lights can be incorporated into the floor.
  5. Explain the types of systems available in terrazzo and their installation.
  6. Explore a series of design possibilities for all variations of terrazzo.
