42 Landscape Architect and Specifier News WET Design enlisted Coldspring to create the precise granite installations. Throughout the planning the project team and fountain designers worked with Coldspring to select the proper stone, and to ensure proper fabrication and meticulous placement of the hundreds of nozzle holes. Modeling software and computer numerical control (CNC) fabrication were used to render these complex geometries. Mesabi black and prairie brown granite, in a combination of polished, Diamond® 100, rubbed and sanded finishes were selected for Transcend, the central oval fountain; Engage, the interactive fountain; and the three rectangular fountains leading to the Central Plaza. 'Mesabi Black' creates a striking backdrop for the water features, and 'Prairie Brown' complements the natural color scheme found throughout City Creek Center.
