Project Description:  As part of a program for capital improvements and maintenance of the Toll Road, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) issued a task order contract to study existing conditions, evaluate options for making improvements, and make recommendations for a number of conditions requiring attention.  Several of the task orders issued by the Authority required architectural services, such as studies and schematics, including the following:

Toll Booth Color Studies: Aesthetic evaluation of existing toll booths by Giuliani Associates conducted in conjunction with civil and electrical / controls upgrade studies provided by Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson Engineers  Studies were conducted in conjunction with the MWAA program for developing a “brand image” for the Dulles Toll Road.

Sound Wall Design Standards: Aesthetic evaluation of precast concrete sound barriers by Giuliani Associates conducted in conjunction with functional, constructability, and durability studies provided by Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson Engineers.  Since the majority of the existing sound walls will not be replaced, the standards considered existing patterns and colors to ensure a harmonious arrangement.
