Cambria Gallery at Buckhead AtlantaCambria, the exclusive family-owned, American-made natural quartz producer in North America, today opened its newest gallery in Buckhead Atlanta, in partnership with Atlanta Kitchen, a Construction Resources company. The Cambria Gallery at Buckhead Atlanta is located at 3096 Roswell Road, in the heart of the prestigious Buckhead Atlanta shopping district, home to many high-end design shops.

As the leading innovator in stone, Cambria offers the most diverse design palette available. Cambria countertops are completely maintenance free. In addition, all 126 Cambria designs, the broadest selection of quartz designs available in the world, are offered at the same price point — allowing the customer to choose freely based on creativity and not cost.

“We are delighted to partner with Atlanta Kitchen, our long-time, exclusive fabrication partner in the Atlanta area to exhibit Cambria’s innovations,” said Peter Martin, Cambria Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business Partner Services. “We are proud to expand our presence and share our design inspiration with discerning Atlanta consumers in fashionable Buckhead.”

Mitch Hires, President at Atlanta Kitchen, has been an exclusive Cambria Lexus Partner since 2009, however the relationship with Cambria goes back to 2002, the first year Cambria started selling stone commercially. The Lexus Partner Program is designed to further strengthen the relationships between Cambria and its fabricator partners as well as provide the highest possible service to the consumer.

“We are honored to continually grow our relationship with Cambria. Launching this new gallery location is thrilling for us,” said Hires. “Our mission is to provide designers and consumers with an upscale boutique experience when selecting Cambria designs for their homes and businesses.”

On display now at the Cambria Gallery at Buckhead Atlanta is an exclusive sneak-peek at Cambria’s four newest designs, which amazed the trade at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) this winter. The new designs will be available August 1, 2015.

On display are various applications incorporating Cambria, including a bar, vanity, conference table, custom tile and slab flooring, half and full-sized slabs and unique, custom applications.

The gallery’s stunning design elements were brought to life with the help of local architect Howard M Kuo (AIA) of Kuo Diedrich Architecture. “My team and I have loved having access to all 126 designs in the Cambria palette. In fact, we ended up placing more than 25 different designs, just in the physical structure alone,” said Kuo. Kuo has been working in conjunction with Atlanta-based interior designer Marni Ratner of Studio M to design the gallery.

Construction Resources partners with SOARD to bring hope to the Bode familySixteen year old Connor Bode is just like any other teenager. He grows taller and more handsome every day, wants to be more independent, is full of surprises and lights up every room with his contagious smile. However, Connor was diagnosed with Open-Lip Bilateral Schizencephaly at five months of age. This rare brain disorder, characterized by abnormal slits in the brain’s cerebral hemispheres, causes Connor to experience impaired hearing and vision, abnormal muscle tone, seizures, hydrocephaly and partial paralysis. Cerebral Palsy is another side effect of the disease, making his mobility and every day activities like showering even more difficult.

Despite this painful illness, Connor has an incredible support system that helps him reach his goals and exceed expectations. As an extension of that support system, we at Construction Resources are thrilled to partner again with Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), an Atlanta-based nonprofit that creates dream room and home makeovers for children with long-term illnesses.

“I am very excited to have Mark on our team,” says Joseph Horne, owner of Atlanta Glass & Mirror. “Mark brings vast experience and knowledge, and he has made us a better company since the day we hired him. Mark is a true leader with passion for our industry and his staff.”

Mark is from Hannibal, Missouri, where he grew up being the youngest of seven brothers and sisters. He comes from a family of hardworking farmers and blue collar workers.  Mark loves to golf and watch college football and basketball.

Mark joined the Army when he was 17 years old to see what life outside of a small town was like.

Mark then went on to be an infantry soldier, team leader, squad leader and platoon sergeant. During his time in the Army, he traveled across the world to Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica and Brazil.

Cambria at Parade of HomesConstruction Resources, an Atlanta based company that offers a variety of kitchen and bath products, is excited to announce that CR Home Alabama and its partner Ridgecrest Properties recently won a Gold award for their showcase home for the 2015 Birmingham Parade of Homes.

The luxury home is located in The Preserve master-planned community in Hoover. The 3,433 square foot, semi-custom home features four bedrooms and three baths. This marks the first time for Ridgecrest Properties to use Cambria in a Parade home and is the only Cambria-exclusive home in the entire Parade.

An unassuming gray with tiny toffee-colored flecks, Templeton is both relaxed and rugged like the old stone cottages of Templeton Village. Torquay is an instant classic, offering a beautiful marble-like appearance that’s both posh and continental, much like this English Riviera town itself.

The Preserve, located in highly sought-after Hoover, is one of the South’s best-loved neighborhoods, with authentic southern Birmingham Parade of Homeshometown architecture, oversized sidewalks and porches to enjoy neighborly views, 250 acres of scenic trails through beautiful Alabama woodlands, parks and resort-style amenities.
