CIP Finishes, of Stafford County, is installing interior hardware for Trellis House, a distinctive mixed-use housing community underway as part of the redevelopment of the U Street corridor in Washington, D.C.

Hardware selections in the property’s 319 apartments, townhouse-style units and common areas reflect the design tastes and lifestyles of the young professionals who will live there, according to a news release.

“The interior hardware finishes at Trellis House are important for their functional use and the overall design of the community,” said CIP Finishes founder and President Paul Milde. “We are also focused on helping the builder complete the project within an aggressive time frame.”

Trellis House is located at the corner of Sherman and Barry Place in the North Shaw neighborhood near Howard University.

The complex blends high-end finishes and amenities with sustainable-living features that have earned the community a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certified Design, notes the Trellis House website

Milde said interior hardware finishes complementing Trellis House’s urban design and sustainable-living focus include:

In all, CIP is responsible for providing and installing 40 types of hardware totaling more than 7,000 pieces that were selected for the project, ranging from unit door hardware to fire extinguishers and cabinets.
