Hot Job! San Diego’s Famous Corvette Diner
- August 3rd, 2009 /
In early 2009 San Diego’s famous Corvette Diner restaurant was temporarily closed and moved from its Hill Crest location to the historic Liberty Station in Point Loma. Restaurant owner David Cohn, Owner of Cohn Restaurant Group, worked with designers and architects to reinvent his restaurant and was in the market for a durable and decorative epoxy floor to compliment the 1950’s essence of the diner.
Based on his previous experience working with Gil Koury of Life Deck Coating Installations in San Diego, Cohn contacted Gil during early construction to see if he could produce a decorative floor that could withstand busy restaurant traffic. Gil inspected the 10,000 square of concrete and selected a Westcoat epoxy system to deliver the desired finish. The existing concrete was in need of extensive preparation including scarifying and patching cracks with Westcoat’s EC-72 Epoxy Patch Gel. It was also coated with Westcoat’s Epoxy Slurry to level and smooth the substrate. Next, Gil worked with Design Perspectives of San Diego to design the floor patterns and select the black, white and custom pink colors to tint Westcoat’s EC-34 Epoxy. Decorative paint chips were also selected to be lightly broadcasted into the system before sealing it with Westcoat’s EC-31 Epoxy Clear Topcoat and EC-95 Polyurethane Topcoat for maximum gloss and protection.
