  • Features & Design Context. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding natural environment, we combined images of local flora and fauna with abstract designs that invoke the rugged topography of the San Joaquin Delta.
  • Requirements & Techniques.
    • The construction of the graceful river-inspired design spanning the 1:5:1 slope walls was achieved by a marriage of old-world craftsmanship and 21st century technology.
    • CFL handcrafted the pattern and form liners to the aesthetic-infrastructure designer’s exact specifications.
    • Every detail of the design was carefully modeled to articulate all shadows and reveals, while maintaining a specified maximum relief of two inches.
    • We fabricated custom form-liners using high quality elastomeric/urethane rubber with the ability to withstand over fifty uses.
    • Each form liner had to be held to a close dimensional tolerance to align with its matching panel.
    • CFL’s skilled craftsmen worked on-site with the contractor to realize this dramatic design that was formed by hand before being cast in concrete.
    • The form liners for this project underwent very strenuous quality-control guidelines to guarantee the production of the highest-quality product on the market.
