Edge Concrete Construction, LLC (formerly a division of Finishing Edge) has been in business since July of 2001. Our focus from inception has been on Decorative and Specialty Concrete and with the employment of Tawn Endres in 2003 we expanded our work into the Themed Environments Industry.
In December of 2006 we acquired our division from Finishing Edge and established ourselves as a separate entity located in Woodinville, WA. This important move allowed us to define our marketplace in Specialty Concrete Services. This includes stamped, stained and colored concrete along with pervious concrete and stamped asphalt (StreetPrint). Our themed environment focus continues to expand along with our shop fabrication capabilities.
Our decorative concrete flatwork division focuses primarily on projects in the Pacific Northwest with work performed on commercial, retail, hotel/resort, apartment and public works projects.
Our themed environment division has successfully completed projects throughout the country for Zoo, Aquarium, Museum, Amusement and other commercial customers. We specialize in natural recreations of artificial rock work, mudbank and eroded earth formations. With the diverse backgrounds of our staff we artfully recreate trees, vines and bamboo as well as coral, kelp, eel grass and other crustaceans for large aquarium tank inserts. Our fabricated work has expanded to include other representative works for the themed industry. In 2013 we moved into a new larger facility in Kirkland, WA in order to accommodate our continued growth. Our new home provides abundant space to meet our growing themed fabrications.
Edge Concrete Construction LLC is ready to help you realize your concept, large or small, on time and on budget, from its inception to its completion. Our staff is proficient in the use of many construction means and methods and we work with numerous materials including steel, wood, FRP, foam and epoxy in addition to concrete. Our main objective is to provide superior customer service in every aspect of our profession. We realize that this standard creates rewarding and enduring partnerships. We look forward to working with you to ensure the success of your next project. Please feel free to contact us anytime.
