CREATING A BETTER WORKPLACE WITH TERRAZZO

In today’s world, cubicles and corner offices are being cast aside for open concept plans that promote productivity through interaction in pleasant surroundings. Designing these new types of workspaces requires a delicate balance between aesthetics and functionality while satisfying the client’s needs and budget. Go safe and risk an uninspired space. Go trendy and risk an outdated look in just a few years.

So what is an architect, engineer or designer to do? The answer is simple - lay the groundwork for an inviting workspace with TREND Terrazzo. By combining the elegance of traditional terrazzo flooring with the technology of an engineered surface, it offers the winning trifecta of unparalleled beauty, durability and sustainability.
