Skate park pours it on

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, Artisan Skatepark workers use a process where they shoot concrete through a hose, called “shotcrete,” to reach the ramps and various skate features of the skate park, the concrete is then smoothed by hand
Artisan Skateparks have been hard at work pouring concrete at the skate park for the past month. Workers have been pre-fabricating forms for the concrete.
Sparks fly as workers cut rebar in preparation for concrete. Each of the workers for Artisan Skateparks are skaters themselves, and “nerd out” with every aspect of the skate park build, as stated by Artisan foreman Justin Gorman.
Artisans of their craft, workers smooth the “shotcrete” on the ramps, domes, and bowls.
