The work Mark Beamish Waterproofing performed at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles was part of a $69 million historic preservation and renovation project. The museum desired to preserve the original look of the century old museum floor, exposing its imperfections. After grinding and polishing, Mark Beamish Waterproofing was able to deliver the desired look by using the RetroPlate System, which doesn’t hide things, but rather mimics what is underneath, giving the floor at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles a smooth finish.

Mark Beamish Waterproofing was contracted to complete the concrete polishing for the expansion of the Oceanside Museum of Art in 2008. First, Mark Beamish Waterproofing went in to clean and prep the concrete surface, including filling the slab joints and patching/repairing any spalls. The refining process was initiated by grinding and then honing the concrete with the Klindex Expander followed by the utilization of the Retroplate System to chemically densify the concrete. Mark Beamish Waterproofing then completed the concrete refining by bringing the polish up to the specified shine through a series of passes with the resin bonded diamond pads.
