High-Stakes, High-End and High-Profile Studio Build

The United States’ oldest coin auction house, Stack’s Bowers, boasts a pristine reputation, high-end clientele and extremely valuable currency. With an increase in online auctions over the past two years, the company needed a new filming studio in Costa Mesa, California, near its U.S. headquarters.


The build required high-quality technical upgrades and customized studio functionality that would emblematize an 80-year legacy — which includes earning a world record for the highest price ever realized for a rare coin. Casco Contractors was selected as a trusted partner to deliver high-profile high-quality custom work, on time and on budget.


The astounding value of Stack’s Bowers’ goods and services presented some unique challenges during construction: The team needed to build within a high-security perimeter during the entire project. Supply chain drain impacted the sourcing of already scarce acoustic and filming materials.


Management of numerous vendors was another key priority, and seamless communication and trust were the bedrock of teamwork and onsite operations.


Casco’s team received recognition for their stellar management of all trade partners in the field, building camaraderie and team morale and earning respect from everyone onsite.


Clear communication and a supportive, trusting relationship between Casco, the tenant, architect, and Stack’s Bowers resulted in a successful build delivered on deadline.
