Eickhof Columbaria has been involved in the design, fabrication, and installation of a variety of exterior custom-built columbaria. Some of these designs have been installed in more traditional locations, others in less traditional spaces. Cemeteries were the first major market that Eickhof Columbaria approached with its concealed hardware system and columbarium product. With the increase in cremation, along with cemetery land area becoming more scarce, forward thinking cemeteries have made plans for exterior custom-built columbaria.
With cremation, the market for non-traditional burial options has changed dramatically. At one time burial was the exclusive domain of cemeteries. Now, with cremation as a burial option, Eickhof Columbaria has had requests for custom-built columbaria at United States military academies, retirement communities, institutions of higher learning, churches, and varies other spaces.
