Project Highlights

 

Planters Unlimited - Acklen Apartments

Acklen Apartments owner, Forestar, came to us requesting large planters for apartment rooftops they were building in Nashville, TN. Their initial idea was to add green plants in planters to bookend seating areas of a large, open area. We suggested artificial plants - specifically our popular succulents - thereby eliminating costly maintenance that live plants would require. We selected modern fiberglass planters with a black fox semi-gloss finish that would accent their existing furniture perfectly. We then proposed "planting" 24-inch Duraleaf Macroacantha Agaves, finishing it off with a soil topper. Because the rooftop received lots of wind, the company was concerned about potential tip-over damage to the large planters. Our solution was to add a false bottom and include a layer of gravel as weight, 200 to 300 pounds that would be hidden inside each planter. They loved the idea! The finished look is clean and crisp, with Forestar adding a finishing touch of glistening black rock to each planter.

An artful interpretation of a desert theme, the design of the Delano Las Vegas is a modern masterpiece of nature-inspired design elements. To complement their rugged, textural lobby design, they chose Stone Yard's sculptural Lacchi Jars, with their uneven silhouettes that worked beautifully with the surrounding stone-inspired design. This hotel's entryway design was so stunning that it won the coveted HOSPY award in 2014.

UltraBaseSystems - Basketball/Game Court

In February of 2006 we successfully installed modular sport tiles over our interlocking base panels, replacing the need for concrete and asphalt sub base construction. We knew immediately this technique would prove to be an important advancement in the court construction industry. The subsequent patenting of the UltraBaseSystems® panel for court construction has now made concrete base replacement and permeable base construction a reality. Superior stability, unequaled drainage, and excellent playability underfoot makes our system the clear-cut choice for athletic court construction. Whether it is permeability issues, accessibility difficulties, or the need for a temporary installation, UltraBaseSystems® has got you covered.

American Louvered Roof Systems manufacture an extruded aluminum product that can be rated up to 180 mph wind load and has a power-coated finish in colors that match extremely well. The louvers could be cut to match the angles in the original design. The adjustability of the louvers with just a touch of a button on the remote control was the perfect solution to their needs. The engineers designed the louvered roof to the specifications required and the bid was submitted, awarded and the product installed. The installation took about 3 weeks to complete. It is said to be the largest louvered roof in the nation and has 10 independent motors with rafters reaching almost 100’ long and louvers nearly 22’ long.
