N1Shaw Media, Ottawa

The main conference room has a grand entrance like no other; it features kalamein doors made of 20-ounce sheet copper. Our artisans crafted custom-sized doors with a handmade patina finish. As with many projects, we were approached to be part of the design, not just fabrication process.


N221 Dundas Square, Toronto

This was a challenging project for our team, as the only reference we had to the original doors was a vague, one sheet historical drawing with very little detail. The eight bronze doors with transoms use architectural bronze material called Muntz metal.


N3Investment Building, D.C.

Our craftsmen created more than 70 new kalamein windows featuring a wood core clad in 16-ounce sheet copper. The cornice detail includes intricate stampings adorning the window frames.
