The Museum is pleased to highlight Dave Steel. Based in Asheville, NC and family-owned and managed since 1929, Dave Steel has been a leader in Western North Carolina’s construction industry for nearly a century. As WNC has grown along with its building needs, so has Dave Steel. Its first major project was the construction of the American Enka plant in 1932, now BASF. The company has continued to grow over the years, updating and modernizing, as well as expanding its facilities into South Carolina. Dave Steel is committed to maintaining a culture of quality and exceptional service. The Asheville Art Museum is proud to join a long history of WNC companies and projects that rely on Dave Steel for their structural steel. In the coming months, as the new construction continues at 2 South Pack Square, you will see the partnership with Dave Steel in action as the new steel structure emerges for the new addition, which will house the art-filled Atrium, visitor services, Museum Shop, greatly expanded Permanent Collections galleries, and rooftop sculpture terrace.
