U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Headquarters, Alexandria, VA — Agency officials were concerned about the safety of the existing atrium balustrade design. After solutions proposed by a renowned global architect were rejected, EDD was given an opportunity to give it fresh thought.

The EDD team presented a few ideas in 3-D sketches and a solution was agreed upon. EDD developed The Balustrade Extension Project, including a prototype created and installed on site. The solution allowed for modifications to the existing balustrade without disturbing the current assembly minimizing costs and disruption to the facility operations.

The $1.5 million installation of stainless steel and glass balustrade extensions for 10 bridges and balconies was completed in April 2017.
