Cost-effectiveness and life-cycle cost of HDG building materials mean low maintenance for years to come adding to the bottom line.
The exposed galvanized tubular framing both inside and out acquired the exact aesthetic look the owners wanted in this light industrial community who loves to follow LSU sports. Designing for the patio project was easy after specifying HDG which could be used as straight columns or bent shapes for the interior. The consistence of the final appearance of the exposed HDG steel was beneficial not only in style, but by helping the contractor meet the fast pace construction deadline.
While Walk Ons has its loyal following, it still operates in a very competitive restaurant market. Lower construction cost and on time performance of the galvanizer enabled the project to be completed on time and below cost. Cost effectiveness and life-cycle cost of HDG building materials means low maintenance for years to come adding to the bottom line.
Building construction with HDG steel offers benefits other brick and mortar projects do not, such as strength required by the harsh, sometimes heavy storms of Louisiana. Architects are free to use their ingenuity to bend or shape for just the right aesthetic appeal offered by exposed zinc coatings. The Patio expansion for the Walk Ons Bistreaux added seating capabilities with limited additional expense. Thanks to HDG steel it also reinforced the Walk Ons motto Never stop trying.
