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 in Canton, Ohio

St. Peter’s Church GFRC Renovation by Stromberg

GFRC Renovation at St. Paul's Catholic Church, Canton, Ohio

GFRC Renovation at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Canton, Ohio

Stromberg’s artisans, craftsmen and architects are truly a talented group of individuals, and when it comes to GFRC renovation, they are some of the best in the world. When they heard about how talented Stromberg Architectural is at GFRC renovation and restoration, St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Canton, Ohio, knew that Stromberg would be perfect for renovating their church while sticking to the original design. Stromberg’s mastery of GFRC renovation allows them to restore architecture to its original glory, and the best part is that their renovations are virtually undetectable due to their seamless matching of color and texture.

Undetectable GFRC Renovation by Stromberg Architectural

GFRC is an incredibly versatile material, but in the hands of an expert crew, GFRC can imitate nearly any other building material. St. Peter’s in Canton has a unique appearance due to its gray, chunky stone exterior. This old world-inspired aesthetic can be difficult and expensive to repair since masons who can work in this style are few and far between. However, thanks to the ingenuity of Stromberg Architectural, St. Peter’s was able to get a first rate renovation that perfectly matches the original architecture, making the repairs seem invisible.

GFRC Renovations by Stromberg will Last for Ages

Another admirable quality of Stromberg’s GFRC restoration work is that these are fixes that are meant to last. GFRC is an incredibly sturdy material that can stand up to all kinds of environmental punishment that would beat down and erode lesser materials. GFRC can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, vicious winds, acidic rain and even kinetic impacts that would destroy other building materials. With Stromberg Architectural, you don’t get a temporary fix, you get a lasting solution.

GFRC Advantages Over Traditional Concrete

  • GFRC elements weigh a fraction of those made with precast
  • The glass fiber reinforcement means there is no metal to rust or corrode
  • A practically endless number of GFRC shapes, textures, and sizes

New Haven GFRC Renovation at Pierce Laboratory

New Haven GFRC Renovation at the Pierce Laboratory

New Haven GFRC Renovation at Pierce Laboratory

Founded in 1933, this Yale affiliated research institute specializes in cardiovascular biology, circulation, energy metabolism and sensory neuroscience, but in 1992, it was in dire need of renovation. Enter Stromberg Architectural, a Texas based architectural firm that specializes in glass fiber reinforced concrete, or GFRC. GFRC is a light-weight and versatile building material, which was perfect for new, long lasting renovations that were in aesthetic keeping with the original building.

GFRC Renovation by Stromberg

Stromberg is your one stop shop for GFRC architectural elements, and the Pierce Laboratory in New Haven is a great example of the diversity of their GFRC products. Stromberg supplied cornice molding, urns, threshold, wall cap, pier cap, coping, panels, keystones, a chimney cap, sills, fascia and heads. Nearly all of Stromberg’s GFRC products arrived at the site pre-fabricated and ready to install, making the renovation quick and easy.

Preserve your Style with Stromberg GFRC Products

One of the most impressive strengths of the master craftsmen at Stromberg Architectural is their ability to fabricate GFRC products perfectly to specification. Their mastery of the material, years of expertise and use of advanced software, like CAD, means that they can create custom architectural elements that work perfectly with any style of building. Their New Haven GFRC renovation project at the Pierce Laboratory represents strong evidence of this skill since it is nearly impossible to differentiate the original architecture from what was added by Stromberg in 1992.

Features and Benefits of GFRC

  • GFRC is lighter than concrete.
  • GFRC is significantly more resistant to erosion than concrete.
  • GFRC is more resistant to concussive force, making it less likely to chip if struck.
  • GFRC can endure extremely hot and cold temperatures.
