Laticrete recently provided Colorado Floorworks with a complete range of products for the major renovation of the Cadet Gymnasium locker rooms and adjoining restrooms at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO.

As part of the $5.1 million renovation that added 20,000 square feet of space to the Cadet Gymnasium, Colorado Floorworks installed 60,000 square feet of tile for the locker room walls, steam rooms, showers and restrooms with Laticrete materials. Colorado Floorworks spearheaded the change of the original specification that included a number of different products from different suppliers, providing the general contractor Centerre Construction considerable savings with single-source responsibility backed by Laticrete with a 10-year warranty.

Colorado Floorworks completed the installation with a full range of innovative products from Laticrete including Hydro Ban™, 254 Platinum thin-set and SpectraLOCK® PRO Grout. For the steam rooms, Laticrete’s 9235 Waterproofing Membrane was used. All of the Laticrete materials were supplied through Tim Whitver of the Rio Grande Company, a long-time Laticrete distributor in the Greater Denver area.

To install over 60,000 square feet of 2” x 2” mosaic tiles in the wet areas of the newly renovated Cadet Gymnasium, Colorado Floorworks utilized Laticrete Hydro Ban for waterproofing and anti-fracture protection in each area with the exception of the steam room.

The entire range of Laticrete products supplied by the Rio Grande Company for the Air Force Base Cadet Gymnasium renovation is GreenGuard certified to promote healthy indoor air.
