More than 1,200 lf of Trex Commercial railing is featured at Amazon University in Silicon Valley, including a stunning Gridguard railing system custom engineered for the building’s 4-story atrium.

Further expanding its Silicon Valley footprint, tech giant Amazon opened a 214,000-square-foot office complex at 2100 University Avenue, more than doubling the number of jobs in East Palo Alto and establishing the city’s largest technology presence.

Housed in a converted warehouse space, the University Square office building boasts a contemporary, open-concept design similar to spaces found in San Francisco’s SoMa district yet infused with the Amazon essence. To complement the modern aesthetic, Trex Commercial Products custom engineered more than 1,200 linear feet of architectural railing for the four-story central atrium stairways, landings and overlooks.
