Stephen Giumenta, co-owner and design engineer at Architectural Grille was invited to attend the TEDxGowanus inaugural event this past Sunday, January 26th 2014 at The Green Building and 501 Union in Brooklyn, NY.
The one-day event brought together community leaders, artists, local business owners and residents with TED-style discussions ranging from the ongoing challenges of pollution in the Gowanus Canal, to the innovation of Street Creeks.
In 2012 Architectural Grille, along with our neighbors and friends, endured considerable damage from Hurricane Sandy. Our efforts and investments to rebuild and continue the growth our Brooklyn based company are taking shape.
One of our major accomplishments in the installation of our new roof-mounted solar array which will reduce our factory's carbon footprint by 258 metric tons of CO2 annually. We are very proud to be bringing Architectural Grille into the next generation of environmentally friendly and sustainable manufacturing here in New York City.
Based in Brooklyn, Architectural Grille is a three generation family business, started by Federico Giumenta in 1945 and carried on by his grandsons Stephen and Anthony Giumenta, has transformed from a brass handle metal working business to a state-of-the-art custom design and fabrication facility.
Architectural Grille is excited to now offer a line of anti-microbial powder coatings that inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi and algae, and also prevent the development of odors, mildew and discoloration associated with these microorganisms.
