"The success of the project rested completely on Imperial’s ability to remotely fabricate and install the two story high wood surface with a perimeter length of 240 feet. They began in the northwest corner of the space, installing 4’ wide panels in a clockwise direction. The entire team was present for the installation of the last section two weeks later – it fit perfectly."
