Heritage Glass is a colored glass aggregate supplier to the terrazzo industry. We have taken the best color formulations and developed a way to process recycled glass into a terrazzo aggregate that has a desirable, multi-dimensional shape and permanent color that is not found in natural marble aggregate. With a wide range of color, glass is a perfect choice in terrazzo. Transparent glass also adds a sparkle and depth to terrazzo floors that can't be duplicated.

With the help of BIM, KAI Design & Build was able to order the accurate quantity of building materials and estimate the building’s cost throughout the design process.
