Bed Bath & Beyond Mexico
With the complete removal of the existing terrazzo, time was tight to complete the installation of the specified polished topping and vinyl flooring. They needed a deep fill that permitted the installation of self-levelers as quickly as possible, that could withstand the stress of the mechanical polishing process, and that allowed other trades to continue working to open the store on time.
Bed Bath & Beyond Satélite Mexico
The existing ceramic tile was in bad shape, and this 20,082 sq. ft. store was due to open soon. A smooth substrate was vital for the high performance vinyl flooring to be installed, and the size of the installation made material logistics a challenge. To top it off, the flooring installation could not interfere with other trades who also had to meet the tight deadline.
The Mission Viejo buybuy BABY store was undergoing renovations including new VCT/vinyl plank flooring. The store was within a day of completion when Steele Tile noticed that the vinyl adhesives started to emulsify. FEATURED PRODUCT: ARDEX MC™ RAPID

Chicago Children's Hospital
Exceptionally high moisture readings in concrete slabs required remediation. Additionally, concrete slabs did not
meet flatness specifications required by architects and finish flooring manufacturers. Most hallways needed an

Consol Energy Center
When Hunt Construction landed the contract for The CONSOL Energy Center, they contracted with ARDEX
Choice Contractor™ E.F. Marburger to install carpeting throughout the new complex. 16,000 yards of
Shaw and Interface carpet tile would be installed in luxury suites, press boxes, locker rooms, clubs and
administration offices. An acrylic sealer used on the pre-cast concrete slabs caused bonding problems for
the carpet tile adhesive and the locker room areas. These same areas had moisture issues that had to be
addressed. Because numerous trades were working in the same areas and a water sprinkler malfunctioned,
some carpeting and cove base was damaged and required replacement. FEATURED PRODUCT: ARDEX FEATHER FINISH® Self- Drying, Cement- Based Finish Underlayment
