Located in Lower Manhattan, Trinity Centre is a commercial building featuring ultramodern infrastructure and technology housed within two iconic and historical sister buildings. Capital Properties, the property management company that’s headquartered within Trinity Centre, demonstrates a focus and commitment to historical building and preservation, exemplified not just through the Trinity Centre property, but through several other historic renovations in Boston and Chicago.
For their recent office renovations at Trinity Centre, Capital Properties consulted with Montroy DeMarco Architecture to create their new spaces. Skilled in both creative design and project management, Montroy DeMarco decided to incorporate reSAWN’s PAVANE white oak flooring for two office renovations. The reception areas and break areas in both spaces included PAVANE flooring and some cladding underneath seating areas.
PAVANE features the refined grain pattern of our rift & quarter sawn North American White Oak – for flooring and wall cladding.
QUARTER & RIFT SAWN lumber is produced by first cutting the log into quarters and then making alternating cuts that are perpendicular to the annual growth rings. QUARTER SAWING produces boards with mostly vertical-grain and a distinctive figuring often referred to as “flecks”, “flakes” or “ray flecks” caused by the medullary rays of the log. RIFT SAWN lumber produces a very consistent and quiet board face with mostly vertical-grain.
This vertical-grain lends added stability to the QUARTER & RIFT SAWN boards making them less likely to cup or crown, making PAVANE ideal for wood flooring over radiant heat or concrete subfloors.
PAVANE is prefinished with our matte polyurethane.
