In their 30th year in business, Debbie and David Quick now have two divisions: general contracting that includes tilt-up and insulating concrete form construction; and themed environments, consisting mostly of vertical application work. Most of their themed contracts are for church and hotel projects.

For the demo, they formed the shape of a tree by using diamond lath and spray filling the center cavity with urethane foam. After the cavity was solid, they moved the foam to the outside of the lath to carve the tree's shape. They covered the foam with vertical overlay cement and handcarved the fine features. They added color with water-based stains.

Their demo also included two precast table-tops: one diamond-polished and colored with dyes, and another colored with epoxy and color, shifting the appearance by working the fresh placed epoxy with alcohol. On their concrete pad, they crafted a pond mural with the tree's reflection in the water. They completed the work with overlay cement, color, and epoxy.
