They are responsible for layout and installation of, floating beds, divider strips, pattern designs etc. Other duties include pouring, rolling, grinding, polishing and repair of terrazzo.

Terrazzo’s life cycle costs makes it the desirable choice for high traffic areas such as universities, hospitals, airports and sports venues.
