St Louis Art Museum – Foreman Fabricators makes visible contributions to Museum expansion with custom metal items including reception desks, trash receptacles, coat racks, shelves and display counters.
Working as a subcontractor with Gravois Planing Mill, Foreman was responsible for a variety of custom cladding millwork with a black oxide finish and a Polane clear coat finish. Despite detailed spec requests and design challenges, Foreman created the precision look envisioned by the architect. Challenges included hot rolled steel sheet without rust, minimal radius with a v-groove in the back of every sheet bend, the need to build special crates to minimize the potential for shipping damage, and finishing each installation with a 3M epoxy glue. Overall, Foreman Fabricators and Gravois Planing Mill worked well together delivering optimal work to meet architectural specifications for the St Louis Art Museum’s expansion project.
