Stromberg GFRC at Walla Walla University

In 2005, Walla Walla University, a small liberal arts college  in College Place, Washington, was in need of a new administration building. The school was founded in 1892, and after over a hundred years, it was time for the school to grow again. However, Walla Walla University understood the importance of keeping new construction architecturally similar to the old architecture on campus, so they called Stromberg Architectural to make use of their world famous GFRC.

A New Beginning with Stromberg

For the Walla Walla University administration building project, Stromberg Architectural provided GFRC columns and cornices that were in keeping with the visual and architectural aesthetic of the rest of the campus. Matching the architectural style of other buildings can be a challenge, but Stromberg makes it easy. That’s because the master craftsmen at Stromberg are so competent with their usage of GFRC, that they can emulate virtually any building material and architectural style with this unique product.

Stromberg GFRC Products are Built to Last

All of Stromberg’s GFRC Products are built to endure the elements and look great for years. Like all other GFRC products from Stromberg, the columns and cornices at Walla Walla University will be able to stand up to freezing cold and sweltering heat without cracking. They will be able to endure hurricane strength winds, pounding hail and even acidic rain. Their administration building may be new, but it is a living classic that will surely be around for ages.

GFRC Renovation at the Atlantis Resort, Bahamas

Constructing a Dream with GFRC

Stromberg Provies a GFRC Renovation of The Atlantis

Completed in 1999, the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas remains one of the most exotic projects that Stromberg Architectural has ever undertaken. Featuring a massive marlin sculpture, sky-scraping spires and majestic finials, the Atlantis Resort is a sight to behold. However, not every day in the Bahamas is fair wind and sunshine, so the project planners contacted Stromberg Architectural to custom fabricate these architectural details from GFRC. That is because glass fiber reinforced concrete, or GFRC, can withstand the toughest weather better than any other building material.

Stromberg Presents Elegance in GFRC

A world class resort needs world class architecture, and that is exactly what Stromberg provides. The custom finials, spires, domes, and sculpture at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas distinguish the resort as one of the finest in the world. These architectural details evoke a sense of exoticism that adds unique character to the resort. Visitors are transported to a magical, tropical landscape that seamlessly merges the high-class, luxury hotel with the paradisaical land and seascape of the Bahamas. This level of sophistication cannot be picked out of a catalog. The architectural details at the Atlantis Resort are the product of vision, careful consideration and flawless, custom fabrication. It’s more than just fiberglass, it’s Stromberg GFRC.

GFRC is Beautiful even on a Budget

While the Atlantis Resort is undeniably a high-class destination, they are motivated by finances just as much as any other business. As such, they recognize the value of GFRC. Since GFRC can be manipulated to emulate nearly any building material, it provides a clear, financially savvy alternative to traditional building materials like stone or metal. Additionally, GFRC details from Stromberg arrive at the work-site mostly preconstructed, making for an easy installation. Whether you are a small businessman or a massive corporation, Stromberg Architectural GFRC will save you money without compromising on quality.

Grace with Grit: GFRC Will Weather the Storm

While the value alone would be enough to make GFRC appealing, Stromberg has another ace up the sleeve. GFRC is extremely weather resistant, and has been known to stand up to extreme weather that has toppled other, nearby structures. Hurricanes, floods, even acid rain have very little effect on GFRC. Naturally, this particular quality makes GFRC an attractive building material when doing construction in high risk areas like the Bahamas, Florida or New Orleans.

Benefits of GFRC: Why Stromberg GFRC? 

  • GFRC is light-weight, low-maintenance and highly durable
  • GFRC is affordable and versatile enough to emulate more expensive building materials like marble, gold and granite
  • GFRC is extremely weather-resistant and can stand up to high winds, acid rain and even hurricanes
  • Stromberg GFRC will not rot, corrode or delaminate over time
  • GFRC requires very little in the way of architectural support, and can be installed just about anywhere

Alaska GFRC Projects

Alaska Area GFRC Projects

Pacific Region GFRC Projects: Medford Library, Medford, Oregon

Although Alaska is the largest state in the country, this part of the Great White North is also the least densely populated. Temperatures in parts of Alaska can fall to below -60 degrees Fahrenheit during the long winter months. The buildings in Alaska–like the people–need to be rugged to thrive.
The GFRC used by Stromberg Architectural is durable enough to be installed outdoors year-round, yet attractive enough to grace the interiors of the most luxurious homes, hotels, and resorts around.

Alaska GFRC Services Provided by Stromberg Architectural

Our Alaska GFRC services include both new construction and GFRC renovation/restoration.
Stromberg can help clients in Alaska create or improve an exterior or interior design by crafting totally new elements in an array of shapes, textures, and colors. Choose from literally dozens of products, including GFRC security bollards, GFRC benches, GFRC fireplaces, and GFRC signage. We aren’t exaggerating when we say we have the largest selection of GFRC on Earth.
If time and the harsh weather conditions of Alaska have damaged a beloved community building, business, or home, Stromberg can use GFRC to achieve a seamless match for a variety of materials. In this way, we can perform GFRC restorations or repairs that blend in with the rest of the structure. Our GFRC restoration process also allows us to preserve as much of the original structure as possible.

Advantages of Using GFRC for Your Next Project in Alaska

  • Suitable for outdoor use, even in areas with severe weather and freeze-thaw cycles
  • Will not rust, rot, or corrode when exposed to moisture
  • Can be placed in coastal regions of Alaska since it can withstand exposure to salt spray
  • Many possible looks and styles to create the effect you want

Anchorage GFRC, Juneau gfrc, GFRC Fairbanks, College GFRC, Sitka GFRC, Ketchikan GFRC, Knik GFRC, Kenai GFRC, Lakes GFRC, Kodiak GFRC, and more.

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).

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.
