    Artisan Metal Works

    The entire gate was designed and fabricated from aluminum because it had to be structurally sound to withstand the heavy usage and the wind loads. The leaf design complements the environment and pleased the client significantly.

    A2 Fabrication Inc.

    The project consisted of 463 LF of side mounted SS railing on the pier and East wall and 335 LF of surface mounted, galvanized railing on the west promenade. Of the 2624 hours of fab time, half was spent in sewing special layout on the netting.


    This is historic landmark of Romanesque Revival. Every piece of the railing was carefully handcrafted; custom designed from the client’s ideas and concepts to sketches, shop drawings, and all hand made processes.

    Boyler's Ornamental Iron

    The design concept was by the architect, who allowed modifications by the fabricator to meet budgetary and engineering specifications. High winds and ice storms made Engineering the greatest challenge, requiring all parts be aluminum for weight reduction.

    Every part of the tree is heated steel hammered to look just like a fallen tree. A small bird’s nest with bird and egg was also added.

    MDO Welding & Fab Inc.

    A lot of effort went into the design and engineering of this to get all of the support of the deck for a floating visual. The railing is all forged aluminum, in a kind of old world/castle style, made to resemble the arrow slits seen in old castle turrets.

    The Heirloom Companies

    A unique hanging ornament designed to coordinate with the main staircase located inside the bank lobby.
