On this tenant improvement project, Mission Bell was involved in building four floors of veneered casework and supplying reclaimed wood for the main conference room.

An unusual aspect of this project was the custom veneered cabinets. Mission Bell’s Veneer Department created a random match veneer pattern made from Olive Ash. This beautiful veneer pattern made for light and airy space that was comfortable and inviting.

Another distinctive aspect of this project was the application of reclaimed wood from the old Ferry Morse Seed Barn in San Juan Bautista, CA. The reclaimed wood wall cladding was applied to the exterior walls of the main conference room. Mission Bell treated the reclaimed wood with a fire retardant prior to the install ensuring that the project met building safety codes. This accent wall creates a cozy and stylish space and since the wood is reclaimed with a unique story, it makes for a great conversation piece.
