Discovery Creative and Technology Center, Silver Spring, MD


The Discovery Creative and Technology Centre incorporates a lateral expansion joint to minimize vibrations from surrounding streets. The joint is vertical.


A SITURA RedLINE® Expansion Joint was designed to accommodate the varying movements and joint gaps, which ranged from 1 to 6 inches.

The RedLINE® Expansion Joint was installed in hot rubberized asphalt with additional mechanical fixations. Site connections were minimal, with maximum joint lengths prefabrication wherever possible.
