North Star Mutual Insurance - Cottonwood MN
Early in 2015 our team of installers spent some time in Cottonwood, MN located in southwestern Minnesota on the shores of beautiful Cottonwood Lake and surrounded by Cottonwood trees giving this small community of slightly more than 1200 residents its name. Here our team installed the North Star Mutual Insurance project of custom built commercial cabinetry.
What about the project…
This insurance office took several days for our team to install. The reception desk cabinets and half wall are made using White Birch plain sliced wood veneers stained with 3/4″ Fry Reglet reveals. The face of the hood is 2cm Cambria quartz “Bradford”; the countertop is 4cm Cambria as well. The backside of the hood has tan tackboard. Behind the desk are Modular Art interlocking panels in “Dune”. We accented the logo above the panels using 3/4″ thick strips of stained solid Birch wood.
In the kitchen/employee dining hall we used Wilsonart “Asian Sun” plastic laminate for the upper and lower cabinets with 4cm Cambria “Lincolnshire” quartz on the countertops. The middle of the dining hall has a water feature utilizing an existing brick wall. Here we built removable wall caps of solid surface for easy access to the water features equipment. In this room we wrapped the columns in 3/4″ stained hard Birch wood and installed Corian “Sonora” on the 15 wall caps.
This project also included a Conference Room, Board Room, and several restrooms. The cabinets are all constructed using White Birch veneers stained with Corian solid surface countertops. The Board Room features a custom built media/entertainment center that houses a 60″ TV. It has all open cabinets with 1/4″ tempered glass adjustable shelving. Above the cabinets is a solid hard Birch wood fascia.
The restrooms vanity and apron box is made using Wilsonart “Asian Sun” laminate; with Corian solid surface “Sonora” countertops with an integrated Corian “Bone” sink.
