Friday Feature - July 6th Edition

3D Model Highlights
Goric - Spirallo
Aesthetically pleasing, these unique design pieces are a favorite of landscape architects. As sculptures, they are beautiful; as play equipment they are exciting.
DeepRoot Green Infrastructure, LLC - DeepRoot Tree Barrier
DeepRoot Tree Root Barriers are patented mechanical guides that redirect tree roots down and away from hardscapes, preventing costly root damage while preserving the health and beauty of mature trees. Our Tree Root Barriers are used for linear, surround and root pruning applications on both new plantings and existing trees.
Glass Expanse - 4 Panel System: Elevation - Single Glazed
As architecture and design continue to evolve, so does the demand for innovative solutions. Glass Expanse takes great pride in offering a product that can solve each challenge that is presented by a creative industry. We incorporate flexibility with strength and elegance, providing a solution for every vision.
Invisible Structures, Inc. - Grasspave 2 Typical Installation Detail
Grasspave2 porous paving allows you to park, drive, walk, ride, or lounge on a beautiful grass surface. It performs the functions of asphalt or concrete pavement, but with the aesthetics of a lawn all while enhancing the environment. Grasspave2 is a structure which provides incredible load bearing strength while protecting vegetation root systems from deadly compaction. High void spaces within the entire cross-section enable excellent root development, and storage capacity for rainfall from storm events.
P+P Artec Inc - Booth Western Museum
"We chose the Artec Stainless Steel Railings because of the clean, sleek, contemporary styling. We have been very pleased with their willingness to work with us in this project." Mark Robilard, Architect

Kornegay Design LLC - Tending the Garden
Elaine McGinn, the Director of Exhibits and Planning at the Desert Botanical Garden, was thrilled with the finished product. McGinn states, “Here is what I love about Kornegay Design®: Everything that Larry Kornegay designs is thoughtful to the landscape and elegant in style. His clean contemporary lines enhance the spaces that are fortunate enough to include them. His work is distinctive and easily recognizable”. McGinn essentially allowed Kornegay to take the lead on the project because she knew he could find a creative way to pull people toward the wall. She also knows that she can call on Larry Kornegay if there are ever any issues with his pieces over the years. “There are things that have never been done before so you have to use all of your experience and you have to come up with the best solution. My service is continuous”, Larry says. The Tending the Garden wall will no doubt be beloved by generations to come at the Desert Botanical Garden of Phoenix.

Dryvit Systems Inc. - Metro Career Academy
The original design of the Metro Career Academy building called for 24,000 square feet of clay brick and 13,000 square feet of cast stone. When Quinn learned that Dryvit’s Outsulation Plus MD System with Custom Brick™ and Lymestone™ finish would save nearly 50% in construction costs (materials and installation) versus clay brick and stone, it was an easy decision.
