VIEW™ is a Button Structural Glass Balustrade Railing giving you the clearest view on the other side. This system is comprised of 1/2” (minimum) SGP laminated glass or 5/8″ PVB laminated glass and fascia mounted fixed point holders in stainless steel.

VIVA uses adjustable stand-off sometimes also referred to as buttons, this comes in very handy when the steel or concrete structure is not level or plumb. From a structural standpoint, glass is acting as a balustrade or a load bearing member. This fixed point balustrade railing system meets all IBC code requirements and can be used with a single line free standing railing (see VIVA FSR railing systemsystem to meet ADA code. The VIVA iRAIL illuminated LED rail is a great add-on application for a sleek, modern look. 

This system is popularly used in exterior and in the interior area of stadiums, universities, office buildings, and high-end residential railing applications.


Texas State Technical College, or the TSTC, recently renovated the Col. James Connally Aerospace Center. Hosting various degrees in Aircraft, aviation, and aerodynamics the new facility can bring students into the flight industry in about 60 credit hours. All of the faculty are FAA-Certified which means you get the best aviation education possible.  Featuring planes of all kinds within the building, the VIEW system chosen by Pearson Construction and the Wallace Group is the best way to display the history of the aviation industry.


Pearson Construction builds the great state of Texas.  Once known as Billington Construction, nearly a decade later it was purchased and changed to Pearson Construction.  Bob Pearson was the first in the family to take over as president, and upon his death, his son Scott has been there from the beginning, holding a true family legacy in the construction firm.


The Wallace Group is not only a group of architects but also engineers and surveyors.  Since expanding to CPY&Y corporation, the team has grown even more but also keeping the same roots in Texas that has made them such a high-quality design team.
