Natural Grocers

the challenge

Customer needed canopies and awnings to match the several other Natural Grocers projects that we have completed. The original idea from the owner was for these exterior features to help provide more a modern feel for the stores. A clean look but still very functional in sun control and water drainage.

The Solution

We provided our standard Helios model canopies and a lone metal awning at the bay door location. Our design and production teams worked seamlessly with the architects to target every detail and meet every deadline.

The Client

The GC on this project was McPherson Contractors, Inc. whom we have completed multiple projects with and are looking forward to completing many more.

McPherson Contractors, Inc. recognizes that their primary and most important asset is their people. To be successful, their people must love what they do, and respect the manner in which it is done.

This project was designed by Vega Architecture which are based out of Golden, CO and we are proud to have a great professional relationship them.

Vega started with big ideas. They believed that it was time to redefine architecture — to fully integrate beautiful, highly functional design with rigorous budgetary and planning discipline. They believed they weren’t the only ones who felt this way. So, they built a team of people who share this urgency to create new ways of designing spaces that are both inspiring and fiscally responsible to the owners.

They focused on these ideas so intensely that they created their own, new approach — [a]VDC, the marriage of architecture and virtual design and construction. They told their clients that [a]VDC is more transparent and more accurate than any design process they had ever experienced. Then they proved it on real projects. And they are refining this approach with every new project they take on. Greater accuracy. More detailed planning. Freeing them to create excellent architecture.
