Specialty Project - Award Winner

  Filed under: Accolades 

As a Design/Build specialist we require our subcontractors to not only be the preeminent craftsmen in their fields, but also have a creative sense that can carry out the most original of concepts.  Fortunately we have just that in a second generation fabrication/machine shop who’s owner embraces the challenge of making anything out of metal that is one of a kind.

With the original design and concept being drawn by the GC’s in house Designer they set to work on figuring a way to fabricate a rail system that would make jaws drop and imaginations stir.  The combination of maple wood railings, balusters and newels along with architectural forged steel metal balusters was step one.  The welder executed the design further by heating and rolling the welded pieces to match the custom curved balcony in the main foyer.  By finishing the architectural metals through a proprietary finishing process he evoked the depth of aged metals, not just something you can buy in any catalog.
