    Thank you for your quick response. I just have another question: Is this poured in place concrete also and can you add other colors to this concrete.

    Your welcome. The concrete is not poured in place but is precast using a glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). This was done to reduce the weight of each piece. As for the colors, yes! The concrete can be made to be just about any color you want. Also decorative aggregates such as colored glass can be incorporated into the cement to achieve many different looks.

    If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!.
