The Museum is pleased to highlight Thorsland Concrete + Construction and Appalachian Drywall as Subcontractor Spotlights. Thorsland Concrete + Construction is headquartered in Mills River, NC and provides concrete contracting services throughout Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. Thorsland provides “the foundation of a great job,” and we are delighted to have their team on board to construct the new Asheville Art Museum. The company will be involved throughout the project, helping to build the structure from the footings, new floor slabs and stairs all the way to the front plaza.

Appalachian Drywall, headquartered in Burnsville, NC is a full service drywall company, working in both commercial and residential construction. Their specialization in medical and industrial remodeling is an excellent fit for the exacting building standards required for a fine art museum. Appalachian Drywall
will also be involved throughout the project — we are excited to see the progress already underway in the renovation of the East Wing as framing goes in and starts to reveal the beginnings of the new exhibition galleries and collection storage facilities.
