Rainier was awarded with an International Achievement Award at this year’s Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Expo for our work at Liam’s Restaurant.
Liam’s approached us looking to enclose the restaurant’s patio and create additional seating space. We built a 58 foot by 18 foot canopy and enclosed it with 9 of our motorized SRS screens. The enclosed space makes for comfortable outdoor dining year round – Liam’s was happy to have an increased 40% seating capacity, and the increased revenue that comes with it!
Unique commercial awning projects like this one are our bread and butter. Our team worked from architectural sketches to design, fabricate, and install the supporting framework, awning, and the retractable panels. The end result is as practical as it is striking.
Rainier has been a member of the IFAI for more than 30 years, and has been recognized by the IAA many times (most recently for our work on the Olympic Stadium wrap in 2012.)
Each award means a lot to us – we are honored to be recognized by our peers in the industry, and to be reminded that you like us … you really like us!
The purpose of the IAA awards is to promote awareness of the specialty fabrics used in thousands of products and applications in the growing global fabrics marketplace. This year, there were a total of 235 entries in 27 categories. Winners were chosen based on complexity, design, workmanship, uniqueness, and function.
