Project details

Phoenix Art Museum details:

A) 6,000 s.f. floor consisting of Brushed Sau Jao Beige Granite from Brazil – The lobby floor is flat and level within 1/8″ over it’s span – the floor is a free floating floor with no expansion joints ( other than perimeter joints)

B) Entry wall features over 1,000 s.f. s.f. Verde granite honed 2cm – mechanically anchored – again within 1/8″ tolerance for the entire run.

C) Floating stairwell features solid stone treads weighing in at over 850 lbs per tread. These were “flown in” overhead using a clever setup with I beams and trolleys.

There was over 20,000 s.f. of natural stone used on this project – completed in 10 months.
