Scope: Soheil Mosun Limited was contracted to fabricate and install (50) pairs of all welded, mirror polished stainless steel and tempered glass frameless doors with cast polished st. stl. door pulls.

Highlights: The project included (4) pairs of oversize exterior main entrance doors with balanced door hardware and offset pivots and (46) pairs of oversize interior entrance doors to all art galleries.
