Phase I of the renovations of the retail showroom at O&G Industries, located at 325 Hancock Avenue in Bridgeport, Connecticut, is now complete and open to the public. Phase II plans include an Architectural Design Center with interactive technology scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2016.
Phase I of O&G's Bridgeport renovations include an updated retail showroom, a larger mason store, an expanded indoor product storage space, and a bulk stone yard.
“Our first Earth Products Showcase opened in Bridgeport over twenty years ago with the specific purpose to display natural stone, brick, tile and paver products to inspire consumers with design ideas,” remarked Kara Oneglia, Assistant Vice-President of O&G Industries. “Heeding the advice of our customers we redesigned the retail showroom to be more conducive to their needs.” Although the new layout is actually less square footage there are more products displayed. The new showroom displays full scale facades and patios featuring full bed veneer, thin stone veneers, natural stone, and concrete paver patios. “The extensive facelift allows us to offer more flexible spaces, updated showroom vignettes featuring products customers love, and trendy new products."
Phase II of the construction plan, nearing completion, is the new 2,200 square foot Architectural Design Center which includes interactive technology and a collaborative meeting space. The new design center will be available to professionals in the design community offering unique custom and special order products from around the globe. Custom or special order items will feature interactive technology services which will allow the customer to view specific cuts and profiles in an array of textures and materials in a variety of online settings.
