Smithfield Foods, Virginia

Design/Build Team: The Stellar Group

For the Corporate Headquarters of the Smithfield Foods Company, the Design Build Team chose DC Kerckhoff to supply the Cast Stone Balustrade, Copings and Moldings to accent the red brick.

Time was of the essence on this project so DC Kerckhoff proposed making single piece balustrade system units to span
from pier to pier. These balustrade sections could then be lifted and set into place as complete units, saving days of jobsite labor per section.

Field templating and measurements were taken to confirm shop drawing dimensions and soon trucks were arriving at the
site with pre-fabricated sections that required no field adjustment.

  • Color – Marco, Acid Wash Finish
  • All molds were custom fabricated in Fiberglass to impart a smooth finish.
  • No Grouting in the field was required for the Balustrade system.
