General Contractor: HITT Contracting
Architect: OPX Architects
Gaithersburg Architectural Millwork teamed with HITT Contracting to collaborate on the Sullivan and Cromwell project in Washington, DC. In a mere 16-weeks, this masterpiece emerged! Gaithersburg Architectural Millwork attributes the success of this project to our superior project management team, millwork artisans, and skilled installers, each dedicated to excellence. With the Washington Monument as a back-drop the full-height wall panels are considered exceptional because of the high-quality veneer on the panels and the unique “fin wall”, assembled at the communicating staircase. The “fin wall” design had not been executed before, and the final design was determined through the shop drawing process and a series of mockups. In addition, the “fin wall” had to be closely integrated into the staircase as each tread is woven through the gabs between the fins. The use of negative space was ingenious, and Gaithersburg Architectural Millwork was involved in every step of making OPX’s vision come to life. Because this was a ground-breaking element, it had to be executed with precision, the essence of time and skilled engineering. This amazing project was the recipient of the WBC Craftsmanship Award.
