“From a design architect’s perspective, we were very pleased with the overall craftsmanship and quality of the poured terrazzo floors by David Allen Company at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Even though the scope of the floor finish was extensive and the pattern complex, David Allen Company was quite successful in fulfilling our design intentions.”
