When it comes to scrutinizing budgets you can count on banks to be thorough. So, when architects specified warm, inviting cherry wood ceilings for a new branch of Westsound Bank, the builder knew he’d have to find a cost-effective way to make it happen. Solid cherry, with its random lengths and inconsistent grain pattern, was going to present installation problems—particularly in a ceiling application. So he turned to Contact Industries, whose tongue and groove profile-wrapped veneered paneling was ideal for the job. “Contact’s ceiling panels were just what we were looking for,” said Keith Burfitt of Burfitt Construction, the contractor on the job. “In addition to creating the look the architect wanted, we were able to give the bank the richness and elegance of a hardwood cherry ceiling without the typical cost associated with using solid wood.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
