In 2022, our long-term partner and collaborator SWA Group Houston made the move to The Great Jones Building, a beautiful historic building in downtown Houston. This move kicked off an exciting process of transforming the building’s accompanying amenity deck into a stunning outdoor space for employees and building tenets alike to enjoy. To bring the group of talented landscape architects’ vision to life, Harvey Cleary Builders enlisted the expertise of Renfrow+Co; we collaborated to devise a custom modular planter system meticulously tailored to integrate into the amenity deck layout. Before the transformation could begin, our survey team measured and verified all pertinent dimensions, including the unique challenge of the deck’s sloping layout. We also factored in provisions for future lighting, plumbing, and irrigation. Once the detailed plan was solidified, the magic of fabrication and installation began.

Constructed from plasma-cut carbon steel, extensive lengths of metal were assembled, creating a complex puzzle that formed a structural framework for the new deck. Integrated Thermory Ash benches added a distinctive touch while providing seating for SWA team members. Installing these hefty modules correctly within the tight corners of the space required crane installation; our team’s precision during this process ensured each piece safely found its rightful place.

The result is a breathtaking space that offers SWA’s team an outdoor oasis with views of the city of Houston.
