December 14, 2010

Custom Components Company in Tampa, Fla., announced that it has received a contract from Austin Building Company for custom designed and fabricated railing for the Museum Tower in Dallas, Texas.

The project is a 42-story condominium development, featuring 116 residences in the heart of the Dallas Arts District and is currently the tallest new structure to be built in the city. Upon completion, it will stand as the second tallest all residential building in Dallas, behind Gables Republic Tower, says the company.

Custom Components Company will supply and install more than 6,000 linear feet of a combination of custom designed and fabricated stainless steel, aluminum and laminated glass railing, utilizing DuPont's Sentry Glass Plus™ inner layer. A unique method of attachment will create unobstructed views for residents and provide a monolithic ribbon of glass at each balcony, the company adds.

Museum Tower is a joint venture by Dallas developers John Sughrue and Lyle Burgin (Brook Partners Inc.) and Dan Boekman and Greg Greene (Turtle Creek Holdings, Inc.). Architects include Scott Johnson of Los Angeles based Johnson Fain and Gromatsky, Dupree & Associates of Dallas. 

The company says this is one of several projects where it has collaborated with Austin Building Company including the OMNI Hotel in Fort Worth, Granite & Gables in Dallas, W-Hotel in Austin and the Irving Convention Center in Irving. 

Railing installation is scheduled to begin in the 3rd quarter of 2011 and continue into the 2nd quarter of 2012.
