Reston station – Curtain Wall Glazing

LNA partnered with Thornton Tomasetti on Reston metro station, an eye-catching Transit-Oriented, Mixed-Use development outside Washington D.C.

BoxBolts were used to attach curtain wall brackets to hollow structural steel in the penthouse section of the building.  BoxBolts eliminated tapping, drilling extra holes or having to reach the back side, reducing overall labor costs.
