Customer, Acme Brick is building their new “Patina” show room for flooring and wall treatments located on Knox street in Dallas Texas.
When challenged by the architect to provide a custom sconce lighting fixture, Adrian Vera (NAC, Lighting Sales) immediately thought of Robert McDonald. Robert McDonald is the Director of Business Development with our Austin based sign division.
Armed with the architect’s drawing of the anticipated yet challenging fixture, Adrian and Robert managed to bring the drawing to life. It was much to the architect’s delight. Gensler architect, Jill Wheeler, responded with an excited “we love it!“. That was closely followed by “great, when can we install” from Gary Reed with Structure Tone (general contractor).
From the architect’s drawing to the finished product, the project ran smoothly and was delivered on schedule. The combined work of Custom Water Cut Metal Shaping and Custom Pantone Paint Finish, made this a beautiful addition to the front of the building. The electrical portion of the project was managed and installed by FSG Electric of Fort Worth (div60). Kudos to project manager Frenchie Shea who made everything flow smoothly.
“It was one of the easiest projects I have ever managed” said NAC project manager Maddie Reese, LC. The joint effort paid off for the client as well as both divisions. Three “Patina’s” were built with more on the horizon.
