Our mission is to standardize the definitions of Mechanical and Topical polished concrete. We aim to tie these terms to a scope of work that ensures a global understanding so that all architects, designers, and tradesmen can educate the building owner or client on what best fits their situation. The University strives to provide practical resources and tools for all of its colleagues, including educational articles, operational forms, check lists, and techniques, as well as an understanding of detailed specifications in the industry.

Polished Concrete University opened in January 2016. Owner Christopher Lavin saw a lack of skilled concrete polishers in the industry and decided to make a difference. We are a 5 star rated university at World of Concrete.
We are also touted as the #1 polished concrete university in the world. Polished Concrete University is partnered with Xtreme Polishing Systems.
If you are having problems finding qualified workers in the field, this is a great opportunity to have your people trained. This way, you don’t have to take the time out of your busy day to teach them yourself.
With over 50 years of polishing experience around you, you are sure to have an adventure of a lifetime.
