Cummins Cal Pacific Interior
Check out this fantastic design from architect David Ferrin and crew at Arketype Architects here in Ventura.
This was one of the more challenging projects we’ve tackled, but everyone agrees it turned out great.
Although it may not look like a green project, but we used a lot of great new products that are either made from recycled materials, or are easily recycled when its time for a facelift in 50 years.
It’s difficult to see in the photos, but these beautiful wood panels are made from one of my favorite wood species, Vertical Grain Doug Fir (often used in Japanese restaurants and Craftsman homes).
All of the wood products are made with FSC Certified materials. Typically, particle board is the opposite of Green, but our laminate cabinets (White and Red) are made with a particle board core that is made without harmful glues or chemicals and uses recycled content. The back lit walls and desk panels are made from highly recyclable aluminum and polycarbonate, so no scrap ended up in a landfill.
Thanks to Dan, Jim, and all the great folks at Cummins Cal Pacific. We had to complete this remodel while their business remained open, and they couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating during the very intrusive process. If you have a Cummins diesel that needs service or parts, this is the place!
