  Harmer Steel    Harmer Steel  operates a salvage division that allows them to provide quality used rail and track materials to customers. For many railroad and industrial applications, good quality used rail will serve just as well as new rail, and is much more economical. Used rail that can be re-laid is known in the industry as “relay” rail. This same term is also used for other track components like tie plates, joint bars, ties, and rail anchors. Harmer maintains a large inventory of relay rail and other track materials (o.t.m.) ready for prompt shipment. Maxon House partnered with Harmer Steel to plan, source and collaborate on the acquisition of specialty rail and accessories for phase two of the project that is currently underway.

  Ben Young Landscape Architects    BYLA  was commissioned to craft a master landscape plan to connect the Olson Kundig designed Maxon House with the surrounded landscape, outbuildings and kinetic architecture elements and overall forested setting. With experience in gardening, the construction trades, and the arts, BYLA brings a wide assortment of skills and background to each project. They believe that each garden and landscape design is best approached as a synthesis of both built/ human influenced forms and those we find in nature: without one, it is often difficult to see the other. It's the combination of both that excites and motivates.
