Constitution Center, D Street, SW

Major renovation and retrofit of the former Department of Transportation headquarters into a Class “A”, LEED Gold office building that exceeds GSA’s current Federal Office Building Standards and meets ISC Security Design Criteria.  Access to the subway is provided through the L’Enfant Plaza station, at D Street, SW.  The existing building was gutted down to its structure, which was salvaged and completely renovated to include replacement of the building façade and reconstruction of all service cores.

Amenity spaces were designed with a basic 30-ft. column grid to align with existing column spacing, with long-span designs considered for future tenant options.  Enhanced physical security measures exceed ISC Level IV, and include progressive collapse mitigation and blast-resistant building envelope, anti-ram barriers along the building perimeter, blast-resistant loading facilities, and common security checkpoints.

The modernized building boasts sweeping views of the city, a fitness facility, 400-seat cafeteria, and a major conference center.  The facility received Mid-Atlantic Construction’s 2010 Project of the Year Award in Renovation/Restoration.

Bureau of Public Debt, Phases I & II

This new headquarters facility for the Bureau of Public Debt, a division of the US Treasury Department, was delivered in two phases.  Phase I is a five-story building and was designed to accommodate future expansion projects and Phase II consists of a four-story building.  The building façades complement the surrounding historic architecture of the existing community through the use of brick cladding, metal paneling, and glass.

Unique structural security features include designs to meet Federal progressive collapse mitigation and blast-resistant design criteria.  The project achieved a LEED Certified rating for sustainable buildings.
