Former Partner Adapts to make PPE

Joe Sultan, aka the “S” in ESKW/Architects, may not be architecting on essential housing projects these days, but he is absolutely doing his part along with wife, Sandy Chilewich, to keep us safe. Joe was always a problem-solver in architectural practice, and we are happy to promote him and Chilewich as they adapt to help solve the unprecedented coronavirus challenge.

We’re meeting the moment by producing vital protection equipment.

At this unprecedented time, we’re making the most of our manufacturing capacity. The Chilewich factory in Georgia is now producing not only flooring, wall textiles, upholstery, and window coverings, but also personal protective gowns. These gowns are critical to mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Made of a modified version of our TriLam backing, the gowns will be provided to front-line healthcare workers in partnership with Fabric Sources International and a consortium of companies committed to addressing ongoing supply shortages.
