When Hutton, a large design-build firm based in Wichita, Kansas, outgrew its headquarters, owner Ben Hutton naturally turned to his own resources. He called on Hutton’s in-house architecture and design team to draw up plans for a new facility. In addition, he knew he needed some commercial protection systems in place to protect the polished concrete floors.
“Our team designed the 26,000-square-foot building to be an educational showpiece for clients,” says Jennifer Szambecki, Hutton’s director of marketing. It also serves as a recruitment and retention tool for Hutton’s 300 employees across four offices. Continue reading
Modern designs and finishes are constantly evolving. Desirable low maintenance surface finishes like Polished Concrete, Terrazzo, Porcelain Tile, Resilient and Epoxy are in demand.
Each surface finish delivers unique protection challenges which need to be identified and met at the specification stage. Too often we see comprehensive specifications that explain in minute detail the type of finish, the installation procedure to be followed and at the very end is a one sentence note. Continue reading
Skudo’s liquid products, such as Concrete Base Coat, Glass Advanced, and Skudo CURE, are water-based. If these coatings are exposed to freezing temperatures either in transit or in storage, irreversible damage can occur rendering the product unusable. Continue reading

In addition to being our toughest protection available, one of the major benefits of Skudo’s HT (Heavy Traffic) Commercial System is that it is the perfect canvas for your construction marks and layouts. Since the HT Commercial System adheres and remains stationary, your construction marks and layouts will not rub off, move, or wash away, nor will they stain your surface.
With snow already in the forecast in the northern regions of the United States and Canada, now is the perfect time to remind our customers regarding the transportation and proper storage of our water-based products. Skudo’s liquid products, such as Concrete Base Coat and Glass Advanced, are water-based. If these coatings are exposed to freezing temperatures either in transit or in storage, this can cause irreversible damage and can also render the product unusable.
The Skudo HT Commercial System is protecting troweled concrete from rain, construction debris, and machinery on the Skanska project at the West Carolina University STEM Building in Cullowhee, NC. The final finish will be polished concrete. The 3 year project involves the demolition of the existing Natural Sciences Building and construction of a new multi-storied structure. The new facility is expected to open in 2021 and will feature 185,000 square feet of lab and classroom space.
