Gensler, San Francisco
Gaylord Entertainment, Nashville
National Harbor, MD, United States
The National Harbor on the Potomac River in Maryland has recently acquired an impressive landmark: since 2010, the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center has been part of the identity of this prestigious location just a few minutes from Washington D.C. The complex includes a hotel, congress facilities, restaurants, and shopping and leisure zones.
dormakaba's contribution to the project
Under the slogan “Get Green”, the operators of the Gaylord Centers, of which there are four in the USA, are also pursuing a number of initiatives to improve their energy efficiency. LEDs have replaced the conventional light bulbs, and power and heat cogeneration plants ensure an improved energy balance.
The access to the Gaylord National takes the form of an automatic revolving door manufactured by Crane, a member of the dormakaba Group. In addition, the designers have also incorporated glass fittings and accessories from the house of dormakaba.
