• US DOT Headquarters: Site Security / WASHINGTON, DC

Security

The design for the US Department of Transportation overcame site and security challenges, exampled by the urban parks and plazas that were designed to incorporate a mandatory 50 foot setback security requirement from the curbside. Lee and Associates used bollards; bollard furnishings; and site furnishings such as light poles, benches, and a prominent fountain structure as hardened deterrents-all to meet the security requirements and earning the project the ASLA Merit Design Award.
