"Our aspiration was to be scarless. We wanted the memory of the weld to be very discreet."

– Christopher Boskey

How do we define and control the finish quality specifications of exposed structural steel?

A local fabricator agreed to test out overhead welds in order to ensure that the detail expectation was feasible on site.

A pre-bid mockup demonstrates our desired finish quality to guarantee a smooth construction.
