Ironically, Blue Cross Blue Shield in Birmingham, AL, needs to be just as concerned about the health and well-being of their buildings’ aesthetics as they do to the rest of their business model. Their sidewalks were beyond the point of repair and seriously needed to be replaced. They contracted the architectural design team at Birchfield, Penuel & Associates, LLC, to create their vision of durable, easily maintained, yet strikingly beautiful sidewalks. The bid was awarded to Murray Construction as the main contractor. Bomanite Licensee, Jeffco Concrete, was chosen to install the decorative concrete sidewalks because of their sterling reputation in the area and their expertise in artisanship and installation.
Accept No Substitutes for Bomanite Imprint Systems
The chosen pattern for this project was Bomanite Running Bond Belgian Block with Used Brick Border, all part of the Bomanite Imprint Systems, a cast-in-place decorative concrete flooring and paving solution that adds a distinctive architectural touch to any project. With more than 400 patterns and custom tooling options, for over six decades Bomanite Imprint Systems has provided design professionals a virtually limitless palette of textures, and patterns. The texture choices are from many natural textures including slate, granite, limestone, sandstone, cobblestone, and used brick. The patterns and textures are limited only by your imagination because custom patterns, tooling, and textures can be created and are also available through the Bomanite Licensees network.
Bomanite Concrete Craftsmen Construct Stunning Sidewalks
Since 1986, Bomanite Licensee Jeffco Concrete and its Bomanite trained team of decorative concrete craftsmen has been performing Bomanite Imprint Systems installations for residential and commercial customers in the Southeast.

In this project the Bomanite Color Hardener used was French Gray and the Bomanite Release Agent was Cobblestone Gray creating a realistic depth of color and design. The 5,681 square feet of sidewalks were formed and finished at a 4” depth with a full imprint. This completed project has the durability to stand up to the toughest traffic loads and environmental conditions. These Bomanite Imprint sidewalks draw the eye to their design detail, add to the aesthetics of the buildings and the landscape, and will provide a beautiful walk for all visitors for years to come.
