Wine Cellar & Tasting Room- Sexton Residence

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

An existing coat closet under the stairs was converted into a small wine cellar that holds about 100 bottles. The racks in the cellar were milled out of 1x red oak. Backlighting was installed above the display as well as the racks below it. Rare wine box ends were applied to the walls and ceiling, then stained & sealed. The double doors were custom made and painted to match the Entry door and the wainscot matches the formal Dining Room. The granite top and travertine tile were provided by Gabe with ABC Granite who also did the entire residence.

AMD Phyzdata- Paesano’s Parkway

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

When you have an open plenum design, acoustics are always a challenge, however if the architect is on his game he has a lot of options to choose from. This project features Armstrong products which lead the industry in aesthetics and performance. The clouds that were suspended throughout the floor are “Axiom Knife Edge” with 2′ x 2′ grid and “Dune” tegular lay in panels..

Also utilized was a relatively new product from Armstrong named “Soundscapes” which come in many sizes, shapes, colors & patterns. A grouping of Hexagon shapes were installed in the elevator lobby and some single hung round shapes in the Cafe area. Very striking while at the same time controlling the sound! (more…)

Presidio Gallery Exhibit

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

The Spanish Government is loaning the city a large collection of rare and historical documents that will be on exhibit for about six months. The existing Federal Reserve Building at 126 E. Nueva which was unoccupied was renovated for this exhibit. It should be opening up very soon. Petrus was contracted to install the ADA handicap ramps & handrails on both sides of the building. Fire rated lumber was used. They still have yet to be painted but should be completed this week.

Fairfield Inn

Monday, March 7th, 2016

This project is right off IH 37 South and SE Military Dr. on Goliad Rd. right next to the Lowe’s. We just recently completed the suspended acoustical ceilings throughout the building and have started the most challenging part of the project, an aluminum soffit at the Porte Cochere. The challenge lies in the fact that the material from Hunter Douglas is designed for a flat ceiling and as you see it’s nothing but flat. Normally you would just screw the receiver channel right to the curved structure but since the City’s fire codes required the canopy to have a sprinkler system we had to furr down an additional 8″ with 2-1/2″ steel studs in order to get below the cast iron pipes. The edges were trimmed out with a matching break metal. Pretty cool stuff!

Tacos & Tequila

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

This new restaurant is at the corner of Broadway & Josephine and was the final space to be finished out at the Mosaic building. The food is great & the service is excellent. We were contracted to mill, configure & install the unusual wood trim that decorates the exterior walls & Entry ceiling. Enjoy!

Tri- County Crossing

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Tri-County Crossing Phase I & II consist of over 4 acres & 57,000 sq.ft. of retail, office, & medical space. The unusual “Pyramid” style stucco facades were framed out of 6″- 16ga. steel studs. The awnings over the sidewalk have a concealed gutter behind a furr down and the downspout is also concealed in the round columns. The entire shell of the building and the majority of the Tenant Finish Out was constructed by Petrus and completed over a 4 year period.

Veritas Properties

Monday, November 30th, 2015

If you drive down Military Dr. on the south side you will pass hundreds of buildings that pretty much all look the same, bad. The owners at Veritas wanted to make a statement and did by adding these stunning EIFS stucco facades on the roof. All the work was steel stud framing except for the centerpiece, the dome, which was constructed out of wood with an EIFS stucco finish. Skip Martin of Keys Construction was the GC and had an awesome team that put this one together.

This cloverleaf light cove was very challenging to construct. The lower ceiling was 9 ft. high with the upper being 13 ft. high. The architect did not want to see any suspension wires so it had to be cantilevered 5 ft. beyond the last point of support. Somehow Grady & Josh figured out a way to get it done. Nice work!
