Historical Project 3

Click on each photo to enlarge.

In 1987, our firm reconstructed the exterior of the five story Tarrant County Civil Courts building, in downtown Fort Worth. The purpose of the project was in effect, to provide a giant "canvas" for nationally recognized muralist, Richard Haas. Our contract involved extensive demolition on the face of the building, installing hundreds of anchors into the existing stone panels and installing prefabricated plaster panels. The muralist's crew then painted the trompe l'oeil mural that can be seen on the fa├žade of the building today. All of this work occurred while there was a full slate of court proceedings inside the building and the building was open to the public. The project was featured in national publications such as Architecture, Architectural Digest, and Southern Living.
