Statesville, NC 

A Silver Award Winner in 2024 for Bomanite Toppings projects 

In the spring of 2022, Bomanite Licensee Carolina Bomanite Corporation was asked by friend and colleague, Landscape Architect Ron Cutlip, about installing a series of walkways and plaza space for the new addition to this iconic North Carolina tourist destination property.  After a site visit by owners John and Donna Fletcher on a blustery early spring day with winds gusting to 30 mph and the temps below freezing, the decision was made to utilize Carolina Bomanite and its team of skilled craftsmen to perform the design build concrete work.

The installation features Bomanite Imprint Systems and showcases the Bomacron Slate Texture pattern with various custom animal print installations including deer, racoon, bear, eagle, and turkey prints.  The selection of Bomanite Imprinting Tools is unsurpassed in the industry with well over 400 distinct patterns and associated textures.  Bomanite molds are developed from natural products such as stone or wood as well as unconventional surfaces like metal, plastic, or whatever your imagination brings to the table.  The animal print installations were coordinated with help from multiple naturalists employed by the Conservancy to ensure realism.  The naturalists, landscape architect, and Carolina Bomanite finishers collaborated to apply the prints based on a realistic situation – for example, was the bear trotting, walking, loping, or galloping – this approach was applied to each animal print installation, guaranteeing technical accuracy, and creating exceptional and extraordinary concrete.
