Contemporary Stone Project in Bloomfield Hills Goes Green

Posted January 19th, 2013 by Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc. and filed in Masonry Repairs, Masonry Services, Stone, Uncategorized

When a plan comes in our office from the architectural firm Young and Young Architects we hold it in high regard and value the opportunity to bid the masonry.  This family owned firm produces some of the most exquisite designs.  We have been fortunate enough to do several project with the Youngs even working with them on their own homes.  This home is no different.      It is an awesome example of a contemporary.  Above that it has a Platinum Leed rating.  The home owners are committed to preserving the environment and play a large role in a land conservancy group.

The veneer stone is Valders buff split face and the paving is Valders buff again with a sandblast finish.  Albaugh Masonry installed all stone on this project.

Bringing It All Together

It is so important to get everyone to work to one goal of completing a project.  If there is no communication or coordinating of the efforts everyone will selfishly attempt to get there work done without caring how the whole project looks at the end.  That is why having an experienced team of professionals can make all the difference in the world.

When every one cares about what the end result is than you can be assured it will be much better than when the opposite takes place.  Take the time to really look at the success of a contractor with other trades before hiring the low number who cannot come up with one single reference.  That is what it takes to “Bring it all Together”.

This project was designed by Dominick Tringali.  The general contractor was Kellett Construction.  The mason contractor was Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc.

A Brick Sculpture Wall in Ann Arbor MI

This wall was designed by Michael J. Dul and Associate.  It was designed and built to retain the change in elevations at the pool area of this project.  However with the  insets and bands that were installed with the colored mortar this wall looks like a piece of art complementing the landscape and pool.

The wall is supported by a poured wall with a very large spread footing.  This is a great example of a great design and installation coming together.
