Case Study Project Overview

It's not often that a large construction project offers the kind of art representation this one does along with an array of design challenges... and a 12 foot hot dog. So when this came to us, we just couldn't wait to get started.

Our Process

This project was as fun as it was challenging, and lucky for us, that’s right up our alley. It was not only important to create a unique artistic expression that not only utilized eco-friendly building products, but also was created to stand strong into the next century.

During a thoughtful design process we learned that by using VistaBrik® glass pavers and a unique customized interlayer, it would be possible to meet all the structural demands and still allow for much needed natural light to make this art driven wall really glow.

After two years of shipping glass block back and forth to Germany and tactful project management, our job was complete. Left standing was the largest installation of its kind in the country featuring over five-thousand square feet of VistaBrik® glass, a ferris wheel, and a twelve foot hot dog.

“When we started working with GBA they took our design, enhanced the features and provided a world class product. We are already working on another resort with GBA and we look forward to many more to come.”

“As a specialized mason, GBA was more knowledgeable and more professional in that genre of masonry than anyone else. Their staff was very professional and provided all required information in a timely fashion. The quality of work exceeded our expectations! They coordinated well in the field with the General Contractor and our foreman.”

Rick D’Aprile, Executive Vice President Rad and D'Aprile, Inc.

“GBA Products has a great group of people that back the product. From the jump, it was easy to get the information needed especially dealing with the difficulties of a Zero Lot Line Community. Made my job easy when GBA put together a proposed materials needed list together for me to help. When the opportunity arises again, I know I will not hesitate to reach out to this great team.”
