Colas Construction was responsible for the build-out of Nau retail’s flagship store, located in Portland’s Pearl District. NAU partnered with ENGIN Creative, a Portland-based creative agency to create the store’s ageless and inviting environment. The store has a palette combining raw materials and minimal treatments-FSC-Certified White Oak, FSC-certified white laminate, hot rolled steel and water-based clear finishes, all of which were carefully considered to fit NAU’s design towards recycled materials. With long lead times and a tight schedule, Colas Construction worked carefully with our local partners and vendors to create all custom fixtures and delivered the project on time and under budget. The build-out demonstrates Nau’s vision of balance between style and the environment. You can currently pay Nau a visit at 304 NW 11th Ave.
