From the Field: Wells Fargo Center Lobby Installation Part 2

Part 2 of our photo update from the construction site at the Wells Fargo Center in Norfolk, Virginia. We manufactured, engineered, and installed the backlit onyx feature wall system and four-sided column wraps in the main lobby.  All of the prep work and structural steel has been completed and we are now hanging our FLAT-Lite™ LED panels and translucent stone DURA-Lite™ onyx panels.   We’re about 90% done!

Update: view the Wells Fargo Center completed project >

While the space itself is unfinished, our stone is finally lit up and providing an extremely dramatic effect to the space.  The stone surfaces have the appearance of candlelight or flames.  When the adjacent dark wooden millwork is installed, the stone will pop against the dark wood surface even more.  Stay tuned for a final wrap-up post regarding this project.
