Located in Sarasota, Florida, this project gave us the opportunity to combine our 3 divisions (Metal, Millwork, Stone), 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.
As you walk through the concourse you will see Tate from every point of view. Other Metal Division items include glass floor planks and stainless steel cladding at bridges, glass guard rails with stainless steel grab rails at the monumental stairs and with aluminum shoe on the entire second floor, aluminum tree grates, and stainless steel base throughout.
The Millwork Division fabricated several unique items including 47′ tall Makore veneer column wraps, a 62′ wide elliptical play court area with solid Makore and Corian walls and cushioned benches, and solid Makore at the Juliet balconies and planters. The customer service desk included Quartz & Makore veneer cladding and radius glass accents. The escalators were clad in Makore veneer panels and had Quartz tech tables and planters below.
The Project Facilities area was outfitted with solid Wenge door jambs, stops, casing, & trim, Wenge veneer wall panels, and plastic laminate cabinets with quartz counter tops. The public restroom areas received our Quartz countertops/splashes with plastic laminate and stainless steel clad cabinets. Overall, a great project that utilized our expertise in Metal, Millwork, & Stone.
