Abstract:
Faena House, an 18-story condominium complex in Miami Beach, FL, comprises 40,000 ft2 (3700 m2) of polished, cast-in-place structural concrete walls. Until now, large areas of vertical concrete walls were typically polished as plant-cast and site-cast precast concrete pieces before they were erected. For this project, however, an inventor designed and built automated machines capable of grinding and polishing of vertical surfaces.
