San Diego International Airport: A tile installation success story

San Diego, CA 

The sound of silence. It's not something you expect in a chaotic airport terminal at San Diego International - the busiest single-runway commercial airport in the United States, serving more than 17 million passengers per year. But silence is exactly what you'll hear when luggage wheels roll over perfectly laid grout joints between this airport's flawless, long-lasting terrazzo tile from Tectura Designs.

An airport's terminal floors are like runways for endless foot traffic, luggage and so much more. During San Diego International's renovation, minimizing downtime and keeping the airport running on time were essential. The airport's primary needs for a flooring solution were speed of installation, strength and durability, and they found that and more when they chose beautiful, durable terrazzo tile from Tectura. The airport features matching precast terrazzo stairs from Tectura, as well.
