ST. LOUIS, MO – Foreman Fabricators is the proud winner of a Gold award in the prestigious international metalcraft competition administered by the National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA). Foreman is a multi-time NOMMA award winner for their custom architectural metal work, and this year they took gold for their world-class Top Job at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Clayton, Missouri.
The finished project is simply gorgeous, crafted with a mirrored copper plate that is so unique, it can’t help but grab your gaze. Next time you banquet at the Ritz, your eyes will immediately turn to the captivating reflective copper finish on the ceiling, stove hood and soffit in the kitchen serving area. It really is stunning. You’ll find more of Foreman’s copper and bronze work in the Ritz’s Cigar Club lounge.
“The contractor, BSI Constructors, asked us to bid on the Ritz job because they know we can handle unique, tough projects like this one,” says Rob Rolves, owner of Foreman Fabricators. “We’ve been around for over 60 years, and it’s rare to see a project of this magnitude made from mirrored copper. Copper is a super-soft metal, and with the mirror finish it’ll scratch if you even look at it wrong.”
“From the time we took the raw sheet off the truck, through fabrication in our shop, delivery and installation, this stuff risked getting damaged. Huge thanks to everyone involved in this project, especially our Project Manager, Alex Nanna, and our guys in the shop, they knew this project was special and it shows in their work. And I’ve got to mention the team at Vogel who did the installation for us – zero damage during install – amazing.”
