Steps are being constructed in the Pubic Access through Uptown leading down to the River Walk that is yet to come later this year. A long time coming, the galvanized steel structural framing is now in place and Grand Traverse Construction workers are on site laying down the Kebony planks.
Kebony is beautiful wood that is sustainable, durable and requires no maintenance beyond normal cleaning. It’s characteristics are similar to Ipe (which is a rare rain forest wood) in that it is very hard, stable and durable.
Developed in Norway, the Kebony® technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color. After exposure to sun and rain the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina. Performance is maintained, while beauty is enhanced.
