Tantillo Architecture was looking for a metal fabrication company to produce decorative metal panels for a restaurant project. They initially contacted Germantown Tool about producing a decorative metal entry way for an upscale Peruvian restaurant in Philadelphia, PA.
However, after several consultations with the project’s lead architect, the project scope grew considerably to include fabricated bar tops, bar rails, shelving, and miscellaneous other steel pieces—all powder coated in the same color to maintain the architect’s vision throughout the entire restaurant and bar areas.
Since all of the work started at the laser cutting process, Germantown Tool’s head laser engineer was tasked with prioritizing the different segments of the project in a way that made sense and provided steady work flow through subsequent work cells. Germantown Tool worked with the architect from initial design through project completion to ensure that the quality, creativity and timelines of this large-scale restaurant project were met.
Part Description: bar tops and rails, decorative screen, shelving
Application: Restaurant fit out for an upscale Peruvian Restaurant
Process: Laser cut, bend, weld and dress, timesave, powder coat, material and finish selection
