Blach Construction is a mid-sized commercial builder and construction management company. As a company of builders, with a wide array of construction expertise, they provide their services to a variety of project types including corporate offices, education, healthcare, sustainability, and other industries.

When Blach decided to relocate their headquarters, they chose Mission Bell to provide the custom millwork, casework, and many reclaimed wood elements.

Pillar's design incorporated Reclaimed Wood throughout the office space. The Georgia Pacific Redwood is the primary wood featured throughout the first floor. It was used for a radius feature wall in the lobby area, a radius bar, shelving, and slats for a guard rail. San Jose State salvaged Elm was also tied into the project. The Elm became the island counter top in one of the break rooms; the 3-board countertop includes walnut butterflies and a live edge detail. Lastly, the Transbay Terminal Douglas Fir was applied to the island of the 2nd floor break area. It was also used as shelving in the break area. The unique wood tied nicely into the grays, greens, and wood tones of the room.

Additionally, Mission Bell provided millwork and casework for the reception desk, the waiting area, a break room, kitchen, island, bar, and shop desks.
