Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems

The Veterans Administration (VA) Central California Health Care System originally hired Heritage Bomanite to place plain gray concrete with a broom finish for their Walk of Honor Memorial project. Heritage Bomanite worked with the VA and TETER Architects & Engineers Company and had them visit their architectural design showroom. Many samples were reviewed and they were so impressed with the quality, durability, look and feel that they decided to upgrade to the Bomanite Sandscape Texture System.

The walk is a landscaped area that leads visitors to the center’s Wall of Honor. The integrally colored concrete and Sandscape finish path has a hand cut pattern in dark and light grey colors. Heritage Bomanite installed the red granite stars along with the decorative concrete finish. The walls are locally quarried Black Granite with more than 1,100 Veterans names engraved.

TETER was so moved by the project that their staff gathered donations that made it possible for the VA to purchase a Battlefield Cross bronze statue for the Walk of Honor. TETER’s Jonathan Schlundt who served as Project Manager on the memorial stated, “The entire process was inspirational in many ways—from the participation of staff creating a plethora of designs, the involvement and advice from community activists alongside the VA, and the commitment of local contractors; but the best part was seeing what the project meant to the Veteran’s and their loved ones on opening day.”

The VA stated that the Walk of Honor was a significant undertaking that will enhance the physical, spiritual and mental healing of Veterans, families and visitors. Each November following Veterans Day, the VA will host a dedication ceremony to add names of Veterans to the memorial.
