Several brilliant companies now offer environmentally responsible surfaces. Consider recycled tile countertops, bamboo counters, concrete countertops. All present attractive and viable alternatives to conventional countertops.
These options are also available for bathrooms, mantels, custom cabinetry, etc.
Poured Concrete – natural organic materials with modern techniques
Comprised entirely of cement, sand, and binders, concrete is a warm natural looking material. Along with color pigments and various aggregates we can give concrete the look, texture, and feel of quarried stone, such as marble, granite, and limestone. However unlike the others, concrete is an incredibly versatile material, able to be formed into complex shapes and designs, taking on character of its own. Our surface can be pre-cast in out shop or built on site, so that the product can be formed to your particular needs.
We bring to our concrete work the skills of a trained artisan and the creativity and the heart of an artist. Each piece is unique and an exclusively hand-crafted design, made completely from scratch. Making them “one of a kind” works of art, only limited by your imagination. Within our designs, Concrete involves and comes to life.
ALKEMI Counter tops – recycled surface material composed of post-industrial scrap waste

Available in a variety of colors and surface treatments (Textured Classic and Honed), ALKEMI may be fabricated and installed using standard solid surface fabrication methods. Strong, durable and exquisite to the eye, ALKEMI offers a brilliant, sustainable alternative to the stagnant commercial options, such as solid surface, plastic laminate, stone and glass.
