Texas Live!

Supplying custom-finished wood materials for a world-class $250 million dining, entertainment, and hospitality district.

Texas Live! is a $250 million world-class dining, entertainment, and hospitality district, located between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Hewn Elements, in cooperation with the owner/developers and interior designer Jeffery Beers, worked to develop the interior wood aesthetics for the various Texas Live! venues.

Hewn provided over 42 different wood finishes and textures across eight wood species to produce interior wall claddings, faux wood beams, ceiling elements, bull rings, bar fronts, and exterior trellis systems.

Prefinished product was shipped either direct to the millwork company for bar, table, and banquet construction, or to the jobsite for install. Because of Hewn Elements’ vertical integration and comprehensive offerings, we were able to help the owner realize over $400,000 in value engineering savings, without sacrificing the original vision.

Instead of having to rely on multiple suppliers, finishers, and outside consultants, Hewn Elements was able to accommodate the wide range of visual and textural styles requested by the project’s designers.

We apply our knowledge of wood and finishing to value engineer the process, staying within budget without sacrificing quality.

Through this vertical integration, Hewn Elements offers a unique experience to owners, general contractors, developers, architects, and interior designers. Our highly skilled workers are capable of handling projects of any scope and size. Whether you need material to cover a 200 ft2 accent wall, or 250,000 ft2 of material to cover a stadium, our workshop can accommodate your order.

Our offerings here at Hewn Elements are not limited to our existing product catalog. Our sales and production teams regularly work with our clients to match our finishes with existing materials, and to create new finishes to match your unique spaces.

The process starts with a sample, photo, or simple conversation to understand the design intent. We then begin the reproduction and sample process, utilizing our unique system of blending raw pigments to achieve your desired tones and sheens. Each step of
the process is documented as part of our production workflow, so we can replicate the finish for future projects with your team.

No matter the color, texture, age, or condition, our innovative craftsmen can create new material to blend with existing spaces. Even if a design specifies a seemingly impossible product, our team can accommodate your needs and give you a variety of options to choose from.

Communication is key in any project, and we strive to make sure our clients’ needs are met throughout the manufacturing process. Our team works one-on-one with every client to ensure that each project receives personalized attention. We focus on value engineering the product to meet your specific needs, staying on time and within budget.
