About Terrazzo

What is Terrazzo?


Invented by Venetian mosaic workers in the 15th century, terrazzo has become a highly versatile building material used in flooring, walls, counter tops and other indoor and outdoor applications. Terrazzo can be either poured in place or set with precast. Terrazzo consists of marble, quartz, granite or glass chips combined with a binder material. Today terrazzo serves as a green building material used in universities, hospitals, airports, office lobbies and other commercial and residential properties

Brief History of Terrazzo


In the 15th century, Venetian construction workers re-used marble chips from previous jobs to form a flat surface for their terraces. Goat milk were applied as a sealer. Today advancements in technology has improved terrazzo methods dramatically.


Terrazzo was introduced in the United States in the late 18th century, and rose to prominence in the 1920s. Famous landmarks like Mt. Vernon and the Hoover Dam were among the first buildings to incorporate terrazzo. Today terrazzo is widely used for its timeless beauty and versatility by architects and designers.
