Take a look at some of our most recent work:

While Dell Children's Medical Center operates at the cutting edge of medical technology, it retains an ancient belief in the healing powers of art and nature expressed in its a three-acre, multi-level Healing Garden complete with a labyrinth, human sundial, reflecting pond and bridge.  To add extra shade for the summer months, Chism Company manufactured and installed a 4 point shade sail over picnic tables at the Care Givers Garden.
