PROJECT: RENOVATION OF STATE CAPITOL OF ALABAMA
PARTNER: HOLMES AND HOLMES OF MOBILE - ARCHITECT
- Maintain historical integrity of the building
- Existing building contains four generations of hardware
- Meet modern code requirements
- Meet modern security requirements
The main building had white porcelain hardware, one wing had brass hardware with bit key locks, another wing had brass hardware with cylinders and finally there was the new addition that had different hardware. Brabner & Hollon Inc. enlisted Best Locking System for new keying. Accurate Hardware produced special hardware trim that was matched to the Best Locks. The finished project maintained the distinct styles of four eras of design while at the same time meeting the demands of today's codes and security.
In a tough economy it is important to do business with a company that has been around the block a few times. Our recent capital expansion at Brabner & Hollon, Inc. shows our commitment to the future and highlights the stable foundation of a 55-year-old-company that has weathered previous challenges.
Completed this past May, Brabner & Hollon increased its office and warehousing space by 6,000 square feet to store doors, frames, hardware and specialties for our clients. As the region’s largest full service distributor, we will not compromise the services, such as installation and warehousing, our customers know and expect.
