D.C. Construction Company Selects CWS for GSA Security Film Installation Project
WASHINGTON – Commercial Window Shield has been awarded a contract to install shatter resistant security window film on a building in the Nation’s Capitol in which the Federal Protective Service is a tenant.
The project, at 1201 M St. SE, also known as Maritime Plaza, involves installing 5,000 sq. ft. of 7-mil clear security film on 149 panes of glass.
Corenic Construction of Washington, D.C., selected Commercial Window Shield from among three project bidders.
Among its requirements for its high-security tenants, the General Services Administration calls for the installation of security window films to keep glass from shattering in a terrorist or other attack. The Federal Protection Service, which protects federal buildings, their occupants and visitors, falls under that designation.
The project began April 17 and will be completed as scheduled on April 21.
Commercial Window Shield is the country’s largest installer of shatter resistant and solar control window films. Among the hundreds of projects the company has completed in its 30 years are the U.S. Capitol, all House of Representative and Library of Congress buildings, Pentagon, FBI headquarters, Grand Central Terminal, Merrill Lynch headquarters, O’Hare International Airport, the Willis Tower [former Sears Tower], the United Nations, and the Philadelphia and Denver mints.
