Project Overview

Category: Universities
Location: Elgin, TX
General Contractor: Skanska USA
Architect: O’Connell Robertson


Our BLADE™ Stainless Steel Railing System has an ultra-contemporary design with minimum obstruction to the line of sight. The system consists of two 2” wide vertical bars, with a cube cap at the top and barrel bolts at the bottom. This expertly-crafted system makes it appear as though the in-fill panels are suspended in air! This modern handrail design is available in powder-coated colors and with an option for LED illuminated rail.

VIVA’s wire mesh infill features an organic, interwoven fabric as an infill. Mesh infills are timeless and easy to maintain. The signature box frame completes the system for a clean, sharp look. Available in a wide range of standard designs, with options of custom design and materials.

The architectural teams included O’Connell Robertson architects with offices in Austin and San Antonio who handled the design, Skanska USA was the contractor and VIVA Railings, Inc. was chosen to install the unique BLADE Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Railing System.

This beautiful Stainless Steel Stair Railing gave a safe and secure feel to the new walkways within the halls of the college. The BLADE Interior Railing system, allowed ACC Elgin to have a custom design fabricated and installed by the In-House Design & Engineering VIVA Railings Team.


Skanska USA builds what matters and builds for a greater purpose. Working to be better together.

“At O’Connell Robertson, we believe in a dedicated, disciplined, mission-driven approach to creating education and healthcare environments that enrich the lives of the people they were designed to serve.”
