The Presidential Inaugural Parade Viewing Stands are three recyclable structures designed and built on a fast-track schedule for the historic inauguration.
The Presidential Stands are constructed in front of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW to accommodate the President-Elect, his staff and family. The 3-story Media Stand is located across Pennsylvania Avenue in Lafayette Park. An additional viewing stand serving the DC Mayor’s staff is erected on the front steps of City Hall. McKissack provided architectural design, construction documents, construction administration and as-built drawings for the construction of three Presidential Inaugural Parade Viewing Stands, including the Media, Presidential, and Mayoral Stands for the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. Additionally, the firm has been selected to provide services for the 2017 event, including a revised and expanded design for the Mayoral Pavilion.
