Atlanta Georgia Terrazzo
Updated: Feb 23
Atlanta Georgia's terrazzo market has been growing over the last decade and now reaches across nearly every market type.
In today's post we'll take a look at some featured projects in the Atlanta terrazzo market. I'll also discuss pricing as well as the typical terrazzo contractors that are installing in this area. Atlanta has been a growing city for numerous reasons. In 2020 alone nearly 82,000 people moved to Georgia, many of which landed in metro Atlanta. This has kept the the residential and commercial construction markets healthy. The majority of the terrazzo is found in commercial applications but occasionally will be used in a high end residential project. The Atlanta terrazzo market is diverse as you'll see below. Designers and owners are better understanding the benefits of epoxy terrazzo and are specifying more and more terrazzo.
Atlanta is my home town and I'm thankful to have been involved with so many great projects. I truly enjoy servicing the Atlanta A&D market. We are here to support designers with samples, specifications, budget pricing and detail review.
The Atlanta market can expect to see most terrazzo flooring to be installed for around $20 per sf. Of course this can vary based on the scope of the terrazzo installation, particularly size of the job and intricacy of the floor pattern. The three most widely used terrazzo contractors in the Atlanta area are listed below:
