PROJECT NARRATIVE

Detailed Description of the Project: (General)

Giuliani Associates was retained by HITT Construction to provide design services as part of a design-build project team for Smithsonian Stores.  The first location developed by Giuliani and HITT was located in Concourse B at Washington Dulles International Airport.  After the successful completion of that project, Smithsonian again contracted with HITT and Giuliani to develop a location in Concourse B at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

As part of the Hitt Contracting Design-Build team, Giuliani Associates provided architectural services from design development through construction.  Working from design standards prepared by the Smithsonian, Giuliani Associates developed contract documents in conformance with Airport Design Standards and site specific requirements. Complete services through construction completion were provided in collaboration with the entire design-build team.

Detailed Description of the Project: (IAD)

Smithsonian combined two existing retail facilities into a single store with two distinct merchandising areas developed with bright color schemes; the merchandizing areas were divided conceptually with changes in materials and finishes.  The existing storefronts remained and Giuliani worked the design around existing utilities and structure.
