Division 6-06200, 06400, and 12300
In the past 10 years, Tate has completed over $40 Million in Custom Millwork and Casework projects. Some of the projects we have worked on include:
Located in Sarasota, Florida, this project gave us the opportunity to combine our 3 divisions (Metal, Millwork, Stone) well, in a beautifully designed mall. From pin-mounted glass guard rails with aluminum shoe and wooden grab rails, to radius millwork benches with Quartz tops/cladding and stainless steel base trim. It also enabled us to work with the wonderful, grain intense, exotic woods Wenge and Makore.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Tate Ornamental gladly welcomes the difficult, ambitious, and extraordinary with optimism and as inspiration. The Mall of San Juan, in Puerto Rico, presented several unique challenges and opportunities to expand our skill-set and experience. Items such as a helical, elliptical, solid surface and wood customer service desk, a continual radius wood veneer bulkhead, and a serpentined, meandering 3Form & upholstered play court, were all unprecedented for Tate and proved to be exceptional works of art.
This free standing spiral staircase is constructed of wood with a ¼” metal plate sandwiched in between the layers of wood for structural support. It is then wrapped with Hickory Veneer and stained and finished. The rail and horizontal bar is made of solid bronze posts All of the bronze was oil rubbed for premature aging. The infill panels are made of solid steel with the patina finish applied to give the “gun barrel” appearance. The top rail is made of Hickory and rolled on a spiral to match the stairs. Spiral stairs such as these add so much uniqueness and the finished product is a true piece of art.
The homeowners said Tate Ornamental made the entire process so easy for us, we knew we wanted a grand entrance but really weren’t sure what to do and then we were introduced to Tate. They helped us design the main stairway and select the veneers, railing materials and finishes. We were so grateful we only had to deal with one contractor on this project. The process went so smoothly that we had them do the Hickory kitchen cabinets as well as the stone countertops.

Hunter Museum of American Art
This project was unique in that it utilized Tate Ornamental for both metal work and millwork capabilities. The hallways consisted of a wooden wall panel system made with book matched pine. We fabricated, shop finished and installed the wood panels that were hand selected by the architect. We supplied and installed the corkboard ceiling and walls in the theatre as well as the information desk and security desk located at the lobby. (All of the materials were shop fabricated and finished prior to the installation.)

The Richmond Marriott West
Glen Allen, Virginia
The Richmond Marriott renovation was tied to very important time constraints. This project required stainless steel, wood and granite to complete the design. Tate was able to supply all three of these components allowing the client to work with one subcontractor. We fabricated and installed the decorative wood and granite check-in counters. The cabinets were made from MDF and the interior and exterior surfaces were made using plastic laminate with absolute black stone tops. There were also three feature walls and computer pods made with wood veneer covered MDF, absolute black stone tops and three form decorative infill panels. The project expanded into the restaurant build out to include booth seating, TV stands located at each table, decorative columns, a breakfast bar and an exterior decorative trellis sun shade.

Caterpillar Financial Center
This structure features stairs with decorative maple wood treads and maple wood top caps and grab rails. Tate supplied the monumental stair from the structure to the stainless steel pickets, wood top rails, grab rails and treads. This stair was placed in the interior of the building after the structure was fabricated and required a lot of finagling to get it into the building and hung in a confined space.
