VCU Student Center, Richmond Virginia – Cast Iron Posts

These custom cast iron posts made by Richmond Iron were custom designed by the architect to compliment the new student center buildings and grounds at Virginia Commonwealth University. The large traditional design cast iron posts are a perfectly proportioned compliment to the brick and stone of the adjacent buildings, stairs and patios and black iron is a nice contrast with the preponderance of red brick. These custom cast iron posts look great with very simple railings and the combination of a custom cast iron post with stock railings provides a custom site specific solution for about the same cost as a typical fabricated railing.
