Public Art

What sets us apart from most firms in the Public Art arena is that we are the designers AND the fabricators.  Our hands physically create our concepts.  This is not true for many architecture and design firms that sub-contract out their projects.  What makes this special is that we truly understand the materials we work with and get most out of them.  We are also typically lower priced (yahhh!) because we have less layers to pay out at the end of the day.  
Let us give you a proposal and see how we stack up!
Below is a collection of various public art projects we have been involved with over the years. New projects are always on the go so please give us lots of time as we typically run with approximately a 6-month wait list.

A Team Approach

Often for public art we take a team approach and work with other companies. Our closest partner is Wild West Welding, with Grant Frulling as the B-ticket, CWB welder we work with the most. We also luck out and have access to a pool of talented tradesmen from SAIT and Lake Louise Ski Hill. Nothing better than working with friends and fabricating timeless pieces.
