Case Study: Dry River Bed Landscape Feature
Letterman Digital Center, The Presidio, San Francisco, California
Architect: Larry Halprin
THE CHALLENGE: Source and deliver stone that would blend with the natural surrounding landscape and evoke a sense of permanence.
THE SOLUTION: Wheeler Zamaroni located just the right stone from a Northern California source. Using the architectural rendering and other drawings as a guide, several hundred tons of stone were hand-selected by Wheeler Zamaroni for the project. Working with architect Larry Halprin, a mock-up was made of the completed project with stone that would be used on the project cut to scale for use in presentation and in guiding the project.
Unlike quarries which may only have one product line, Wheeler Zamaroni has a large range of landscaping, natural stone products and building materials to choose from. Being able to touch and see the different stone and landscape product options all in one place gives you a better sense of the range of materials available for use in your project (such as Aggregates, Pavers, Natural Stone, Retaining Walls). We can give you samples to make sure you’re happy with your selection. You can even purchase small amounts of products that you are considering to create mock-ups of your project at its location. We work hard to make sure that you’re happy with your product selection the first time, and every time.
Budget and deadlines are critical to any project. Our product consultants will help you save time and money by bringing samples to your office, job site or home – anyplace that’s convenient for you. We offer pre-construction meetings at your site or in our offices. We can also assist with design, reviewing submittals, making product recommendations and conducting training seminars for your staff. Wheeler Zamaroni can help you make your project a success by making sure you have the best products, in the right quantities, delivered on time!
