“We’ve used Paul Yam of Chef Restaurant Supply for all kinds of custom stainless steel projects, and each time, he’s delivered a well-crafted piece regardless of the constraints. He’s even been flexible enough to tolerate a Saturday morning delivery, where he and his crew had to tango with a 500-pound wet terrazzo polisher.”

Empire Architectural Metal had a huge scope for the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center. They manufactured all the custom aluminum window frames, and canopies that double as signage with aluminum letters, which they water-jet-cut and welded together. They re-did several things that we had some issues with. They are very accommodating and committed to making it right.”

Gratz Industries is legendary. They fabricated Mies’ Barcelona Chair, and they are as good as it gets.”

Maloya Laser’s bread and butter is building heaters for de-icing airplanes before they take off, so they have really high-end laser cutters and CNC milling equipment. On the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism project, they sat down with their knowledge of how steel bends and the properties of various alloys, etc., and worked out the details with a high level of precision. Honestly, it’s hard to find people like this.”

“We used Metropan’s custom zinc panels to clad two walls that flank the back porch of our West Village townhouse. I’ve seen these go in very sloppy on other projects, and this was just a jewel-box-like installation. It’s very clean and beautifully detailed.”

J. Frederick can fabricate just about anything out of metal; they’re amazing. We spent time in their shop with their blowtorches and chemicals to get some incredible patinated surfaces. Kevin really knows what he’s talking about.”

“Mark Chagnon of Quality Metal Craft is a true problem-solver and a craftsman at an affordable price. He did the custom metal folding and fabrication for our Fin’s restaurant in Boston. All the laser-cut steel bends were really complex. We basically brought him a paper model, and it didn’t scare him away.”
