Trimmer Smith Awning & Upholstery | Mobile, Ala., United States
The project, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the multiple fabric structures category of the 2007 International Achievement Awards, consists of 16 quarter-bullnose awnings, 10 fully enclosed pool cabanas, and four open poolside cabanas in large shell-style with compound-radius bullnose edge-frames and 9m-diameter carousel frames. The Beau Rivage Casino property, Biloxi, Miss., was heavily damaged during Hurricane Katrina, but the entire facility was rebuilt and restored in less than one year. MGM, parent company of Beau Rivage’s interior designer, had a custom print of Firesist Sunbrella created for the job. The custom stripe fabric used on the radius frames took extra time. MGM and Beau Rivage personnel, however, were extremely happy with the outcome. The project cemented a working relationship between companies for future projects.
