Architectural Concrete Walls

We start our architectural concrete walls with accurate excavation provided by us, footings and or grade beam support beneath it to ensure it is structurally sound. The concrete footing is below grade so that it will not be seen after the back filling or final landscaping. After the footings are in place, the walls are constructed.

We offer a wide variety of finishes. To achieve a smooth finish, we use high graded paper faced plywood in which no wood grain is left behind. There are also other finishes obtained with other material, for example; board form concrete walls. These are constructed using wood boards, foam, sandblasted knotty wood or planks, which leaves behind a wood grained pattern.
Architectural Concrete Walls can be constructed with Rustications / chamfers that leave behind a desired imprint or style. Cam lock or snap ties , and other fastening systems also make an attractive pattern when walls are stripped and cement foamed. Our high strength mixes leave little honeycombing when a super smooth finish is required.

Architectural Concrete

Architectural concrete is similar to decorative concrete as it is attractive concrete. Our approach to Architectural concrete projects is to create relatively contemporary concrete structures with generally no colour with most often sharp corners compared to decorative concrete using rounded corners almost exclusively. Architectural concrete patios and driveway are generally smooth finish with sometimes a light acid wash or architectural wash.

Decorative concrete is created most often by colors, mixed with designs, borders patterns and robust textures. Contemporary homes most often are complimented with concrete which is more on the minimalistic side of design. Floating concrete steps are a very popular design element for architectural concrete jobs. Contact us today if you require architectural concrete elements for your home renovation or new build.

Concrete Stairs and Steps

Iron Trident offers a large selection of concrete steps. Consisting of different finishes, sizes, and purposes. Some of the concrete steps we build are used as landscaping tools to support grade change. Each step can be custom designed to satisfy any space limitations, if you need to cover a large space with a gradual slope, smaller risers with wider landings might be ideal. If confined by space, narrow concrete landings might do the job.

All of our concrete steps can be designed for any style of landscape theme. Have you seen our popular contemporary smooth finish concrete steps? We often pour these in the classic concrete gray. These steps can also be paired with light sand blasted borders to truly bring forth the modern contemporary style. Classic steps often have nosing with finishes such as exposed aggregate or stamped concrete.

Exposed Aggregate

Exposed aggregate concrete has a highly durable surface, and is a great option for Vancouver. Typical broom finish or smooth driveways or walkways show erosion damage much easier, whereas it is much less evident in exposed aggregate. Exposed aggregate concrete is different from the other styles of decorative concrete because the top layer of the concrete is washed away, or sand blasted the day of the pour or soon after exposing the rocks.

We always aim for the best method of exposing aggregate, however it is sometimes not practical to wash, so we must use the sandblast method, which can be quite messy. We strongly suggest that small plants, flowers or shrubs be re-planted until the exposing work is complete and that the final stages of exterior work on a new-build take place after the exposing is complete. To protect your exposed aggregate we suggest sealing it a couple weeks after it is poured. For this we use a penetrating sealer or a high gloss sealer. We also advise to seal your concrete every 2 years. This enhances protection and the look of the concrete.

Concrete Driveways

Often times the largest piece of concrete on your property is your concrete driveway, which is our specialty. We always construct our concrete driveways with a compacted gravel base, a close rebar grid, and a concrete thickness of 4 inches or more depending on the style and requirements. There is a wide array of finishes for concrete driveways. Texture Stamped concrete or exposed aggregate, smooth or a swirl float finish. If you cannot decide on one why not incorporate a mixture of finishes. Other options to give a regular driveway additional curb appeal includes Adding a custom border.

After you new concrete driveway is installed be sure to keep off it for 28days to achieve the strength needed to perform a lifetime. For those colder months we also offer in slab heating. Most driveways are finished with a high gloss acrylic sealer for lasting protection. Sealer makes the colors more vibrant, and gives a tremendous shine to the concrete bringing all aspects of it to life.

Concrete Planters

Concrete walls can oftentimes serve either a decorative/architectural purpose while a structural purpose as well. Iron Trident’s concrete contractors specialize in concrete Planters and architectural walls. These concrete walls can also be used to form planters, harnessing the luscious greenery/colors of the planter mixing it with a modern concrete finish. We construct our concrete walls with bottom block outs allowing you to insert sprinkler lines, or electrical lines after the walls have been poured so installation of sprinklers or LED’s can be easily achieved.

Our concrete contractors can construct concrete walls of many different finishes, colors and sizes. We often use cam-locks and ties in many of our planter concrete walls. Cam-locks leave behind a pattern of holes, which are decorative.
