About this Project

Crystal Structures, a renowned manufacturer of architectural glazing systems, provided a stunning 20-foot ridgelite for the North lobby of the White Flint One building, which houses the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) just outside of Washington, DC. The ridgelite, a prominent feature of the lobby, allows natural light to stream into the space, creating a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and staff alike.

The NRC, established in 1975, is responsible for overseeing energy-producing reactors, licensing radioactive materials, ensuring radionuclide safety, and managing the storage, security, recycling, and disposal of spent fuel. The White Flint complex, consisting of three buildings, accommodates nearly 4,000 NRC employees.

Crystal Structures’ expertise in designing and manufacturing high-quality glazing systems is showcased through the installation of the ridgelite in the NRC’s White Flint One building. The ridgelite not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the lobby but also demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing innovative and functional solutions for its clients.
