New Hard Helmets
Starting January 2020, all Trademark Concrete employees have transitioned from the traditional hard hat to the new OSHA approved “helmet.” On both sides of the helmet, wrapped in gold, is the Los Angeles skyline – consisting of select projects we’ve been a part of over the years. The back features a triangular “ghosted” inlay that recognizes each employee’s years of service & various skills our field personnel either have, or can obtain, through in-house training. Each skill being highlighted by individual graphics.

Winner of American Society of Concrete Contractors Award 2014 for Cast in Place & Special Finishes over 5,000 sq. ft. for “The Reserve”
Formerly a U.S.Post Office Facility, now a model of sustainable re-use structure. Trademark constructed all of the decorative concrete paving and cast-in-place concrete steps and walls for this innovative creative space project.
The white concrete paving was achieved by using white cement, white aggregate, and white sand. The surface texture was exposed by use of top surface retarder. The high cost of the white concrete contributed to the risk of the project.
The cast-in-place walls are uncolored concrete; the sand texture on the vertical and horizontal surfaces of the wall was achieved through the use of a top surface retarder as well.
- Sawcut joints on the horizontal surface align with the vertical sawcut joints on the walls.
- The joint between two adjacent concrete colors is separated by a sawcut to create a crisp clean joint.
- The continuous radius edge of paving was required to be smooth to allow for a clean and level transition between the wood (Ipe) deck and the concrete paving.

QUALITY YOU CAN SEE
Decorative concrete requires extreme craftsmanship.
“Our company is defined by the quality of our employees,” says Trademark Concrete Systems President Lance Boyer. “Quality employees create quality work.” And with Trademark’s work completely focused on decorative concrete, quality is critical. Customers have high expectations for decorative concrete, but Trademark has been able to deliver that by taking care of its staff of skilled craft workers.
“Everyone in our field and office knows why our clients use us – because our work looks great, we are knowledgeable, workers are true craftsmen, and we are easy to work with. We are not a low-priced contractor. We believe that our knowledge and expertise brings value to our clients.” Trademark shows off this skill in its showroom in Los Angeles where it educates and informs design professionals on technical issues.
