Farnam Hotel

Contour was responsible for the installation of the rough carpentry and finishing carpentry items for the project. We had to install wood backing for wood paneling, casework, bath accessories, and millwork. The finish carpentry scope consisted of wood paneling, bath accessories, bathroom partitions, millwork, casework, FRP, and doors and hardware. There was an extensive amount of wood paneling on this project totaling over 13,000 square feet.

Saint Wenceslaus Catholic Church

  • General Contractor- Boyd Jones Construction

St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Omaha, Nebraska, added a 41,398-square-foot addition to the church and a 6,755-square-foot support wing that consists of offices, a kitchen, workroom, and conference rooms.

The ceiling of the main entry featured tongue and groove paneling that would be used in five other ceilings throughout the project, as well as at some wall finishes. Throughout the corridors and narthex rooms, poplar box beams were installed at the ceiling to give it an exposed beam look. Nearly 1,400 lineal feet of varying size box beams were installed throughout the St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church corridors.
