In recent years, more notable projects include the San Antonio International Airport, First Baptist Church of Southerland Springs, and the San Antonio City Hall renovation in South Texas region.
This past year, GFC was proud to participate in the Endeavors Veterans Wellness Center in Northwest San Antonio. “Endeavors is a national nonprofit service organization that connects vulnerable populations to a wide range of helpful services.” GFC partnered the General Contractor, F.A. Nunnelly and RVK Architecture bringing to life the first of its kind Veterans Center which offers Veteran’s access to services designed to meet their physical, mental, and spiritual wellness and the opportunity to connect with other people.
RVK designed the Veterans Wellness Center to reflect the 6 pillars of wellness:
F.A. Nunnelly executed the design, constructing the facility to exhibit the “circle of wellness” that Endeavors believes is a never-ending journey. GFC’s challenge was the installation of over 4,800 square feet of 12 different tiles with 12 different grouts, the size of the main elevations and complexity of wall patterns bringing the architects vision and Endeavors mission into reality.
The visual effect of the 48” x 48” Imola porcelain tile “Concrete Project” provides the durability of concrete with an earthy contemporary mood. The same “Concrete Project” was used in wall cladding in the elevator areas. Restrooms showcase various sizes, patterns, and textures to bring the outdoors in. Crossville Nest – Mindful Oak in both 8” x 36” plank and 12” x 12” mosaic visually create the look of teak and are beautifully offset by Crossville – Handwritten wall tile. Subway wall tile in other bathrooms and lobby area were set by hand to create unique looks that draw the eyes directly to the beauty of the tile itself.
Throughout the process, GFC’s Project Management and Production teams efficiently executed the project specifications completing this project within time and budgetary constraints. GFC is proud to have had a hand in providing our Veterans with the services that maintain their health and safety, as they have so selflessly provided the same to us.
