Delaware North Executive Terraces
Stone collaborated with local designer F&S Design Studio to create construction documents for the installation of three rooftop terraces on the 12th floor of Delaware North Corporation's global headquarters in downtown Buffalo. Gensler, an international architectural company hired Stone and F&S to create these documents. The design was challenging due to weight restrictions, and elevation changes that required adjustable pedestals under pavers as opposed to the standard stone base. The design also incorporated a custom planter system, with a lightweight soil media, in addition plant selection was paramount due to the natural elements that rooftops are exposed to. A-1 Land Care submitted a bid for and won the contract for installation of the planter system, raised planters and all plants.
