Architect Led Fabrication!

Architect Led Fabrication!

Although we played the role of Architect in each of these projects, our team really began to shine when we had the ability to design and fabricate. We are no longer restricted from having a 20 foot hanging table in a restaurant or a 10 foot fire pit at the entrance We are now able to provide the opportunity for our clients to have a very unique and special furniture piece within their space that no one else has in the Quad Cities and beyond.

The 4,000 person concert venue is an appeal in itself, it will have the ability to host small intimate shows or large head-banging festivals within a built environment that was once a carriage buggy factory, the assembly line for the Moline Knight (car), and most recently the house of East Moline Metal Products.

I am excited to see that a private developer is willing to challenge the riverfront development naysayers because any great park must incorporate a private development relationship in order to be successful at the scale of our City.  Yes, Cities like Chicago, New York, St Louis are able to have 100 acre parks that attract millions of people each year.  But a large park in a Mid-size city must have features such as restaurants, apartments, office, and other community amenities in order to bring life to the riverfront and have frequent visitors during all seasons throughout the year.
