Ft. Hamilton, Brooklyn, NY
New 45 guestroom, low-rise, urban, limited-service, and government-operated hotel. This was a design/build, project. Commissioning services were also provided for this project. Some guestrooms were designed for extended stay purposes and had kitchenettes. The building also was required to comply with various government standards, such as emergency shut-down of outdoor air.
MEP design for a 7,000 ft2 conference and office area, and a 3,000 ft2 exercise room, with new restrooms. This project was a design/build project. The existing mechanical system was a 2-pipe fan-coil unit system, which could not provide cooling in the winter, separate from the rest of the building. A new mechanical system was designed, so that cooling could be provided in the winter for the large, dividable conference rooms, using a variable refrigerant flow system.
Glenmont Parking Garage (WMATA)
Design of a 380,000 ft2 parking garage for the Washington, DC subway system. This was a design/build project. The project was designed to meet LEED Silver standards. LEED elements include energy efficient lighting, and a daylight harvesting system, which reduces lighting levels along the perimeter, based on ambient light levels. The facility also has an emergency generator to power emergency systems and elevators.
Reconfiguration of about 100,000 ft2 of pre-function space to meeting rooms. This was a design/build project. A large existing pre-function space was divided into meeting rooms, using air walls. This required that the existing constant volume HVAC system be reconfigured to a variable air volume (VAV) system to provide smaller HVAC zones for appropriate temperature control. Balcony spaces were also divided to create new meeting rooms. This required the addition of new fan-coil units. New office space was also created, along with a new air handler for these office areas.
Remodeling of a 60,000 ft2 multi-story government office building. This building is the main office for the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers, Norfolk District. This project was a phased renovation project, with departments being relocated as needed to allow for the construction to proceed, with the occupants still in the building.
Moving Beyond Earth Exhibit, Washington, DC
Renovation of a 5,000 ft2 museum exhibit space. The new exhibit includes stage area that can be converted to an interactive media kiosk system. The exhibit space has remotely operated video cameras and lighting system, to allow the space to serve as venue to conduct interview of astronauts, NASA personnel and other members of the space industry. These interviews can be videotaped and/or broadcast to off-site locations, such as other government facilities, schools, etc. As part of this project, HVAC and electrical upgrades were designed for the video control room, which is located remotely.
Undisclosed Government Agency
Metropolitan Washington, DC
Design of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems for a government office space. The space was designed to appropriate GSA and other relevant agency standards. The space included SCIF space, computer rooms, secure storage rooms, ballistic resistant walls, as well as other high security elements. This project was designed and constructed on an expedited schedule.
2900 K. Street NW (former Group Goetz Architects)
This was the buildout of a 16,000 ft2 office space for an architectural firm. This space was designed with LEED design elements, such as a daylight harvesting system, which dims lights along the exterior windows on bright days. This project achieved LEED Platinum certification.
International Baccalaureate Office
Chevy Chase, MD
This was the buildout of a 30,000 ft2 office space for a British firm. This space was designed with the intention of obtaining LEED certification. As part of our design for LEED certification, the facility uses occupancy sensor control of lighting, as well as use of energy efficient lighting fixtures. The facility has about 6,000 ft2 of conferencing facilities. Our design also included 24/7 supplemental cooling for a computer room. Most of the facility is built on a raised floor system.

United Nations Environment Programme
This was the buildout of a 5,500 ft2 office space for a United Nations Agency. This space was designed with LEED design elements, such as use of occupancy sensor control of lighting, a daylight harvesting system, which dims lights along the exterior windows on bright days, as well as HVAC controllability. This project achieved LEED Gold certification.
