Rio on the Hudson - Olympic Event
Forever Redwood built a 50' long pavilion for the Rio on the Hudson Olympic event on Pier 26 in Manhattan. It was a rush job, and we got it done the day before the Olympics began while other folks simultaneously built out the bar and cafe area underneath the pavilion. Below are a couple of video links talking about the event with our pavilion in the background used as the bar/cafe area with wide screen televisions.

ATTU Island 1943

Obama, China's Xi agree to work together
In late May, we received a phone call from the Office of Protocol at the U.S. State Department. Redwood only grows natively in the U.S. and in China, and so we were chosen to build a custom bench for President Obama to present as a gift to President Jinping of China. Many details went into it, from incorporating the number 8 into the design (because the Chinese believe it is an auspicious number) to engraving in both English and Chinese. It was a sprint job that had to be designed, edited, approved and installed in days. We received press on Saturday June 8, 2013 when both Presidents stood before the bench and sat down for a symbolic photo. We are honored to have participated in this process and thank the State Department for their trust in us.
White House Briefing for June 08 where the Forever Redwood Bench is mentioned between minutes 22 and 25 as a symbolic gift and representation for deepening relationship between the U.S. and China.
