Our projects are artistic, mechanical, monochromatic, brightly colored, industrial, and visual. Simply put – they are as unique as our clients. Knowing we are only as good as our last commission keeps us eager to find our next challenge.
Artist Gary Sweeney provided the artwork and design for 28 road dividers. We cut and welded the square tube steel frames around water jet artwork. The finished weldments were powder coated. Installation was handled by the Greater East End Management District. Five of them are unique designs and are eleven feet long. The remaining 23 are four designs repeated which are each seven feet long.
The anchor design on the doors and the steel tube frames were provided by artist Gary Sweeney. In order to weld them into their spaces and not have unsightly gaps each panel needed to fit snugly. All three doors were meticulously measured and individual panels were cut which conform to the subtly unique dimensions of each space. Once welded the doors were sent out for powder coating. The last step was attaching the perforated stainless steel screens to the back side of the designs.
Anthony Thompson Shumate of ACTS Studios designed the bicycle racks for the Greater East End Management District. HCMW cut them from 7/8 inch thick plate steel and had them hot dip galvanized. Some were cut with extensions that are sunk into the concrete pad they sit on. Some have feet welded to the bottom of them and they are bolted on top of their concrete pads.
These decorative archways were designed by artist Gary Sweeney and produced by HCMW. They delineate the two ends of the Esplanade at Navigation Boulevard in Houston. Each is all steel and roughly 15 feet tall and 15 feet wide. The artwork was provided to HCMW and then cut out of three sheets of steel which when laid next to each other fit seamlessly. The sheets were welded at the joints and then welded to a 2″ square tube frame. The entire assembly was powder coated prior to delivery. Installation was handled by the on site contractors.
Artist Anthony Thompson Shumate came to us to produce his project – Monumental Moments. These inspirational phrases are installed in Buffalo Bayou park in Houston, Texas. The four foot tall letters are cut from HDPE. What no one will ever see are the threaded stainless bars and galvanized tubing which lay under ground. This steel structure provides spacing and secure anchoring for the artwork.
