Hawaii GFRC Projects

Hawaii Area GFRC Projects

Pacific Region GFRC Projects: San Jose State University, San Jose, CA

Although it is part of the United States, many people who visit Hawaii feel as though they’ve entered an entirely different world. The breathtaking islands of Hawaii have world class surfing, active volcanoes, and pristine wilderness. Tourism is the biggest contributor to the economy of Hawaii, so hotels, resorts, and stores need to make the right first impression.

Stromberg Architectural can work with you on your Hawaii GFRC project to design custom elements or a completely new indoor or outdoor space that will reflect the unique identity of your business as well as the unforgettable spirit of Hawaii.

Featured Hawaii GFRC Projects

  • Honolulu GFRC: Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Kalaoa GFRC: Kona International Airport, Kalaoa, Hawaii
  • GFRC Hilo: Hawaii County Building, Hilo, HI

Just Some Reasons Why There Are Few Materials Better Than GFRC For New Construction and Renovation Projects Include:

  • The versatility of GFRC: Available GFRC finishes include ones that replicate the look of limestone, terra cotta, and other costlier materials. Paintable finishes are possible, and an almost endless array of textures and shapes can be achieved.
  • The durability of GFRC: Stromberg’s affordable GFRC elements can be placed outdoors with confidence. So moisture resistant it can be installed underwater, GFRC has also stood up to high wind speeds and severe weather in the lab and the real world.
  • The low weight of GFRC: GFRC weighs significantly less than traditional concrete, yet still has a higher tensile strength than steel. Thanks to this property, GFRC shipping and GFRC installation is typically relatively simple (and often quite economical).

Stromberg Architectural Supplies Affordable GFRC to All Areas of Beautiful Hawaii:

Honolulu GFRC, Hilo GFRC, Kailua GFRC,  Kaneohe GFRC, Waipahu GFRC, Pearl City GFRC, Waimalu GFRC, Mililani GFRC, Kahului GFRC, GFRC Kihei, and local GFRC service to smaller cities and towns.

South Carolina GFRC Projects

South Carolina Area GFRC Projects

South Area GFRC Projects: Forsythe, Savannah, Georgia

South Carolina, which is considered part of the Deep South, is a land of vast unspoiled lakes and beautiful mountains. There are literally dozens of National Historic Landmarks in “The Palmetto State,” which range from private homes in Charleston, to Gothic Revival churches, to buildings constructed in the Greek Revival style. South Carolina’s beaches, golf courses, and state parks also make it a popular tourist destination, and many of the hotels, shops, and restaurants that cater to visitors are decidedly upscale.

Stromberg has a knowledge of many architectural styles, and we can use affordable GFRC for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) renovation and new construction. Whatever your architectural needs in South Carolina, Stromberg is here to help.

Iowa GFRC Projects

Iowa Area GFRC Projects

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: D.A. Blodgett Building, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Extravagance, history, and attention to detail are all evident in the various buildings and other architectural creations found in Iowa. The Iowa State Capitol, for instance, features five architectural domes, one of which is covered in shimmering 23-carat gold. The Union Block building was where several historic Civil Rights speeches were made, and the Fountain of Four Seasons sculpture on the Iowa State University campus was obviously painstakingly created.

Using GFRC, Stromberg can achieve a seamless match for many materials so you can make renovations and repairs to Iowa buildings that will be virtually undetectable. We can also craft custom molds to create GFRC sculptures and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) fountains that are incredibly detailed and highly ornate.

Midwest and Iowa GFRC Projects

Stromberg has a strong track record of successfully completing GFRC projects in many Midwest states, including Ohio. One of our notable GFRC Ohio projects was the work we completed for the Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, Iowa. This small institution of higher learning has just 1,100 students. One thing it has in common with larger schools, however, is that the campus is home to buildings that are both eye-catching and historic.

Other GFRC Midwest clients and commissions include:

  • Wisconsin GFRC: Miller Park, Milwaukee
  • Michigan GFRC: Lexington Lansing Hotel, Lansing
  • Illinois GFRC: Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago
  • Indiana GFRC: AmeriPlex at the Port, Portage

Delaware GFRC Projects

Delaware Area GFRC Projects

South GFRC Projects: One Morrocroft Centre, Charlotte, North Carolina

Delaware has the distinction of being not only the second smallest state in area, but also the first state to join the Union that would eventually become known as the United States of America. There are several structures in Delaware dating back to the 18th century, such as the Georgian-style Delaware State House, as well as modern commercial buildings in downtown Wilmington.

Whether you’re looking for GFRC for contractors or GFRC for architects that will help you preserve Delaware’s architectural past or create a brand new and ultra-modern retail space, Stromberg can help.

  • St. John’s College, Annapolis, MD
  • College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia

Arizona GFRC Projects

Arizona GFRC Projects

Arizona GFRC Projects: Anthropologie, Scottsdale, Arizona

Some of the most impressive sights in Arizona were formed by Mother Nature, not crafted by man. It’s where you’ll find the Grand Canyon, and it’s also famous for dazzling sunsets and Meteor Crater. Architectural enthusiasts also know that Arizona is where architect Frank Lloyd Wright established his winter home: Taliesin West.

Attractive storefronts, universities, houses of worship, and posh hotels catering to choosy tourists are also part of the Grand Canyon State. Stromberg can craft GFRC elements for brand new Arizona buildings, help bring an existing interior or exterior design into the 21st century, or assist in preserving the past by performing seamless GFRC restoration and repair.

Featured Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) Arizona Projects

  • Flagstaff GFRC: La Quinta Inn, Flagstaff, Arizona
  • Scottsdale GFRC: Anthropologie
    Elements Supplied by Stromberg: Roughly 2,000 GFRC blocks
    While each of the GFRC blocks crafted for the exterior wall of the Anthropologie store was somewhat simple on its own, the finished product was simply extraordinary. Using GFRC molds, we were able to create identical pieces and incorporate a level of detail that is difficult to achieve with cut stone.

Nebraska GFRC Projects

Nebraska Area GFRC Projects by Stromberg

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: Commerce Bank, Afton, Missouri

Nebraska, which has an economy that relies heavily on agricultural pursuits, does not have the plethora of architectural wonders found in states such as Nevada. The Nebraska State Capitol, however, which was constructed using Indiana limestone, is undeniably a marvel. Reflecting both Classical and Gothic styles, it features an impressive tower that is crowned with a dome and a figurative sculpture.

Stromberg Architectural can use GFRC to replicate the appearance of limestone, and to create architectural domes and intricately-detailed sculptures. We also have a knowledge of the conventions of many architectural styles, including Classical and Gothic. As such, we can use GFRC to create structures that have all the features of iconic buildings. Versatile and lightweight GFRC, however, allows such projects to be completed more quickly, and costs are typically lower as well.

GFRC Nebraska Projects

Stromberg has completed a number of GFRC Nebraska projects, as well as others throughout the rest of the Midwest. Just one of our Nebraska GFRC projects was the work we completed for the Edward Zorinsky Federal Building in Omaha, Nebraska. This 432,000-square-foot structure is the place of employment for more than 1,200 federal workers.

Stromberg’s GFRC products aren’t just suitable for commercial and government structures. Our GFRC Midwest clients and commissions have also included churches, educational institutions, hospitality establishments, hospitals, and retail stores. We can expertly craft GFRC columns, GFRC brackets, GFRC fireplaces, and dozens of other elements that are suitable for both interior and exterior use.

South Dakota Area GFRC Projects by Stromberg

South Dakota is one of the least populous states in the entire country, but it’s home to one of the most impressive sculptures in the U.S. and perhaps even the world. The work is of course Mount Rushmore. Here, the likenesses of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln are recreated in solid granite.

Like South Dakota’s most well-known landmark, GFRC creations by Stromberg can inspire wonder and turn heads. We can create classical GFRC columns in practically any shape or size, ornate GFRC planters, or even a GFRC sculpture or Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) bas relief showing a miniature version of Mount Rushmore.

North Dakota GFRC Projects

North Dakota GFRC Projects by Stromberg

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: Ameristar Casino, Kansas City, Missouri

The climate of North Dakota, also known as the Peace Garden State and the Roughrider State, poses challenges to landscapers, masons, and designers commissioned to install outdoor elements. Warm summers and cold winters mean that any outdoor elements will be subject to freeze-thaw cycles, springtime flooding is common, and extreme meteorological events such as tornadoes are not unheard of.

There are few materials that are better than Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) for this type of climate. GFRC elements by Stromberg weather well as the temperature changes, and will not corrode or rust, even when placed under water. In both the laboratory and the real world, GFRC sculptures and other GFRC elements by Stromberg have also withstood extremely high winds and other severe weather events.

Midwest Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Projects

During our nearly three decades in business, we have completed a staggering number of GFRC projects throughout the entire Midwest. Following are just a few of our Midwest GFRC clients and commissions:

Oregon GFRC Projects

Oregon GFRC Projects

Oregon GFRC Projects: Medford Library, Medford, Oregon

One of the most remarkable things about Oregon, also known as the Beaver State, is just how varied its climate is. The western portion receives substantial amounts of precipitation, while the other areas of Oregon are prone to marked fluctuations in temperature.

Regardless of where you are in Oregon, affordable GFRC is an excellent material for indoor and outdoor elements. GFRC is so moisture resistant that it can be installed underwater, and this lightweight and versatile material can handle freeze-thaw cycles as well. Stromberg Architectural can supply GFRC design assistance and dozens of GFRC elements–from GFRC columns to GFRC urns–to clients located anywhere in the state of Oregon.

Featured Oregon GFRC Projects

One of our signature GFRC Oregon projects was our work on the Medford Library in 2004. For this 83,000 square foot facility, Stromberg supplied GFRC cornice, one of our signature products. Thanks to the versatility of GFRC, we were able to finish the GFRC cornice to match the color and texture of the surrounding building materials. Our GFRC cornice not only looks fantastic, but also helps protect the building from rain, a frequent occurrence in many areas of the state.
