Sweetwater Sound Showroom

Sweetwater Sound, located just off I-69 on highway US-30 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has the world’s largest music showroom. We added polished concrete floors to their Live Sound, Service, and Gear Exchange rooms located within their showroom.

We installed a Surface Overlay on top of old and new concrete and polished the overlay with our StrongTread system. We finished the overlay with a salt-and-pepper Classic system at a 400-grit, satin finish.

There were two main reasons the overlay was chosen over polishing existing concrete:

  • There had been some trenching and multiple pours of concrete in the renovated space, and it was important to the overall design to have a more monolithic look to the space without patching.
  • It was important to have smooth thresholds throughout the space for accessibility. By choosing the Surface Polish overlay, we were able to build up to a 34” tile in the main corridor and transition smoothly into the polished concrete floors.
