Commercial Construction Nanaimo

These gorgeous trellis were constructed with luxury in mind at the Summerhill Place Apartments nestled in the Bowen Road/Townsite area. This project Started as forming up a couple patios and soon ended up with many more projects on site Ben Kuntz over saw this project and was happy to have us on site finishing off some of the final details.

We formed up the front entrance way which you see in the photos below. We also ended up building 5 trellis on site which were supported with knife plates. Knife plates are use when you are looking to support a post and beam design and want to hide as much of the hardware as possible. The Cedar posts where then bolted to the knife plate with carriage bolts and ships washers which gave it a bold look.

We use a Makita 16-5/16″ Circular Saw which wow does that have some torque. When you fire this puppy up it lets you know you mean business.
