The Security Building on 4th Avenue – A Hidden Gem in Downtown St. Louis

The Security Building at 319 North 4th Street in downtown St. Louis is something you’ve probably passed by dozens of times, but unless you work or do business there, you’ve never seen how beautiful the building is.

The Security Building has some unique architectural features. The lower two floors are clad in beautiful pink granite, with pink limestone and brick features above. A steel dome sits above the lobby and art glass tops the entrance way. Foreman fabricated the custom steel framework of the dome and the steel and glass railing that sits above it.

Ritz Carlton – Antiqued Bronze Rails, Frames, and Panels

If you’ve been in the Ritz-Carlton’s Lobby Lounge, you’ve seen our work. Foreman fabricated the antiqued bronze panel frames, bullnose, and foot rail on the bar front in the Lobby Lounge. We also made the antiqued bronze panel frames and bullnose on the sushi bar.

The Ritz-Carlton of St. Louis, located in the heart of Clayton, is thought to be one of the finest luxury hotels in St. Louis. The hotel offers 300 guest rooms with views of the St. Louis skyline.

Missouri History Museum Brushed Stainless Rails

The Missouri History Museum was founded in 1866 and is located in Forest Park. The Museum features many exhibits including interactive activities such as games, listening and video stations and puzzles for the whole family to enjoy. If you’ve been there, you’ve probably put your hand on a Foreman railing. Foreman fabricated the removable brushed stainless steel railings in the MacDermott Grand Hall, the Gaylord Garden Courtyard and the Bernoudy Garden Courtyard.

Removable railings allow flexibility of purpose, and increased crowd capacity in public spaces. Brushed stainless finishes are beautiful and durable enough to withstand the elements, and visitor traffic.  The History Museum itself has a uniquely calm and tranquil atmosphere. The courtyards on either side of the front lobby are often sparsely populated, and a nice spot to catch your breath. It’s a cool place to duck into, any time of the year. As you do, just remember that Foreman will always be there to support you – literally.

River City Casino Brass and Aluminum Fabrication

River City Casino opened on March 4, 2010 on the bank of the Mississippi River. It has approximately 55 gaming tables and 2,000 slots, and was named the Best St. Louis Casino in 2010 by Riverfront Times.

If you’ve been there, you’ve seen our work. Foreman fabricated the brass trim on the canopy at the north entrance and on top the of revolving doors at all 3 entrances to the Casino. If you need a curved piece of polished brass trim to add a touch of class to your exterior, we’ve got you covered.  We also made the anodized aluminum lattice panels on the south and east side entrances and the aluminum mirror box above the sushi bar in the buffet.  The aluminum lattice panels are interesting because they’re nearly invisible.  We made them to match the surrounding painted wood lattice, and they do, perfectly.

Ornamental Metal, Decorative Metal

Functional art and ornamental metal that stands the test of time

Many of Foreman’s projects in the St. Louis area fall into the category of ornamental metal or decorative metal accents. The truth is, ornamental metal goes far beyond wrought iron fences, although we have repaired those. Metal art always makes an impression, no matter the context, and it will be around for the long term. As a result, some of our favorite projects are the ones in which we fabricate unique, decorative metal works of art.  We’ve tagged many of these in our blog posts and photo galleries: Ornamental and Decorative Metal

Foreman also has a number of ornamental metal projects in our St. Louis Landmarks series.
