2023 TTMAC Hard Surface Award – Terrazzo

New Toronto Courthouse

The Ontario Court of Justice – Toronto is now located in a fully accessible, state of the art courthouse. It features 63 judicial hearing rooms and will bring together six Ontario Court of Justice criminal court locations. These courts include specialty courts such as those for drug treatment, youth, and mental health. Construction began in the fall of 2018 and is now the largest courthouse in Ontario and the second largest in Canada.

The new Toronto Courthouse was designed by the internationally renowned Renzo Piano Building Workshop in partnership with Canadian-based architecture firm NORR Architects. The 17-story design can now boast being the most accessible courthouse in Ontario. Among elements such as video capabilities for remote attendance, barrier free boxes, and braille signage are the tactile indicators installed by Franklin Terrazzo Company Inc. Thousands of stainless-steel domes and bars are installed in the public spaces to assist in wayfinding. The more unique tactiles are those installed at the courtroom entrances. These tactiles were not only installed by Franklin Terrazzo Company but also fabricated at their precast shop in Chatham, Ontario and transported to site. The large precast panels were cast, and material was then ground and removed creating panels with integral tactile bars matching the exact specifications as their stainless-steel counterparts.

Franklin Terrazzo Company Inc. worked with EllisDon Design Build Inc. to install beautiful epoxy terrazzo in the public spaces of the courthouse. This includes the large lobbies of the ground and first floors, 12 elevator cabs, as well as public corridors and washrooms on all 17 floor levels. There are 46 public washrooms exhibiting beautiful epoxy terrazzo floors and base.

Connecting the ground to the first floor is the feature staircase, featuring 5-foot-long self-supporting epoxy terrazzo treads with detailed nosing. The 140,000 square feet of crisp white floors are the result of extensive leveling and flattening of the concrete slab performed by Franklin Terrazzo Company Inc. to achieve a super flat finish. This substrate was also treated with full coverage crack isolation membrane prior to the installation of the epoxy terrazzo. The use of white epoxy resin with pure white marble chips are what give the floors their brilliant white appearance and are framed with 3” precast flat terrazzo base.

Senate of Canada

2023 NTMA Honor Award Winner

Senate of Canada

The Senate of Canada is located at Center Block on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

The existing Centre Block is undergoing a 10-year renovation project which is resulted in the relocation of The Senate of Canada to a temporary new location which was built in 1909 and was originally the Ottawa Union Train Station.

Public Works Canada along with Diamond Schmitt Architects and KWC Architects in joint venture took on the challenge to design the 8,000 square feet of corridors and lobby floors of the New Senate Building. In this design it was noted that the existing marble had to be incorporated as it was deemed Heritage Marble.

The existing Missisquoi Grey Marble floors, baseboards, wainscoting, and stairs were salvaged and cut into 2 inch wide by 1 ½ inch thick pieces by random lengths ranging from 10 inches to 30 inches.

Due to the irregular and sloped floor of the old railway station a conventional sand and cement underbed was installed.

The underbed was left to cure for 5 days. A Moisture Vapor Treatment was installed followed by epoxy primer. Two coats of full coverage fiber reinforced crack isolation membrane were applied. 1/16-inch zinc divider strips were laid along with expansion joints.

The next step was the installation of the Heritage marble bars. The random lengths of Heritage Marble bars were chopped in length with a mosaic chopper creating broken and uneven edges giving them an old-world appearance.
The heritage marble bars were installed at random within the 4 feet by 9-foot panels using an epoxy mastic. Once the heritage marble bars were successfully installed an epoxy terrazzo mixture consisting of Aggregate sized at #0, #1 and #2 was poured to complete the installation. The entire floor was then ground to an 800-grit finish and sealed.

drake hotel terrazzo

2022 TTMAC Hardsurface Awards: Terrazzo

The Drake Hotel – Modern Wing

The Drake Hotel is a Toronto hotel destination located in the Queen West neighbourhood and is well known for its celebration of community, culture, and contemporary art. The Drake Hotel expanded with the addition of the “Modern Wing”. The completed project has achieved the Toronto Green Standard Tier 2 requirements for sustainable design.

The five-story expansion allows for 32 new hotel rooms as well as a rooftop suite & terrace. The new “Modern Wing” is a contemporary design that contrasts the “Classic Wing” that once housed the entire hotel. A new ground floor in the main lobby is where Franklin Terrazzo Company Inc. created a seamless transition from classic to modern through their terrazzo installation.

Franklin Terrazzo Company Inc. created 6 colours to match the pastel shades of the original portland cement terrazzo of the vintage building. The new lobby features jewel tone terrazzo floors with a modern design full of dynamic energy and movement. The 9mm epoxy terrazzo floor spans 2,000 square feet over a moisture mitigation membrane and crack isolation membrane. The patterns were created with 1/8” zinc strips to define the crisp edges of the design.
