2009 JOB OF THE YEAR
Northern Illinois Terrazzo & Tile Company
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
GRAINGER HALL ADDITION
Madison, Wisconsin

This addition to UW Madison, Grainger Hall, is a beautiful continuation of the harmonized mixture of enduring building materials such as terrazzo, stone and wood placed into the crisp lines of design and structure within this project. The elegant mixture of traditional and modern design is perfectly demonstrated by the combination of organic lines and geometric shapes in beautiful patterns featured in the traditional elegance of terrazzo. Half of the project was existing structure, and half was new structure. The versatility of epoxy terrazzo perfectly accommodated the wide variety of substrate conditions from new to old. The eight-color pattern and strip design provides a beautiful appearance with all the desirable qualities of durability, longevity, and low maintenance required by the high useage of a busy university. The intricacies of the color patterns, strip design, and vertical applications were executed with a high level of craftsmanship befitting the age old traditions and legacy of terrazzo.
