Commercial - Featured Projects
The challenge in commercial spaces is to produce finishes that are both attractive and resilient, often with customers in close proximity. Frank H. Stowell & Sons’ craftsmen and our hand-picked subcontractors consistently meet this challenge.
It helps that we work with the most innovative and best materials that are designed to withstand an intense level of wear and tear and stay looking unblemished. Still, it’s our expert installation and creativity to address obstacles that could not be anticipated that bring our projects to successful completion.

Shred Shop Retail

Skate-boards, snowboards, and associated accessories required a building with lots of space. That dictated a forty-foot ceiling and open-concept. From a construction perspective it meant working on a flat roof with a “leading edge”. Working with the safety-approved articulating boom-lifts and regulation tie-offs kept everyone safe and sound. We are pleased to report that Frank H. Stowell & Sons’ safety-record is incident-free for the last ten years.learn more»
