Commercial Office

Leuterio Thomas

This project transformed a general office suite into an open, collaborative workspace for the new tenant (who was also the architect). During the project, we provided advice on the possible re-use of an existing supplemental HVAC system (which was abandoned in place) and paid close attention to the careful re-use existing lights and diffusers as appropriate for the new layout.

Location:        Oxon Hill, Maryland

Basic Data:     4800 SF tenant within appx 200,000 SF Mid-Rise Office Building

MEP Data:      VAV / RTU System, LED Lights, Power to Custom Desk Layouts, Tenant-Specific Panels & Meters, Sprinklers/Strobes

Brookings Institution / Washington University of St. Louis 8th Floor Conference Room Conversion

This designed reconfigured a majority of the top floor of an existing office building, creating 3 large conference rooms, a break-out area, and support areas. Work included two new rooftop HVAC units (at the sightline-sensitive at Massachusetts Avenue), relocation of another RTU, and coordination with A/V and movable partitions. We also expanded the existing core bathrooms and added a new standalone bathroom to accommodate increased fixture load, as required for the new occupancy. Work included close coordination with the structural team (for new RTU penetrations) and the base building management (to re-balance the remaining air from the building system and integrate new life safety devices and controls into the existing system). 

Location:        Washington, DC

Basic Data:     8,000 SF Renovation of the top floor 12-story Hi-Rise Office Building (conversion to office/classrooms)

MEP Data:      New Rooftop HVAC units, specialty (high outside air) HVAC, multi-feature lighting controls.


The NAA (now the ‘News Media Alliance’) is a non-profit that holds several long-term leases in Arlington, VA. This renovation provide a new 6000 SF fit-out in a newly renovated hi-rise office building. The space included collaboration areas, open office spaces, private huddle rooms, and private offices.

Location:        Washington, DC

Basic Data:     Approx. 6000 total SF, including conference rooms, private offices, and open work areas.

MEP Data:      The base-building HVAC system was modified to accommodate the tenant’s layout, along with a new dedicated unit for the conference room. The floor’s electrical panel was also re-configured for the entering new tenant. Several hi-tech A/V connections were also part of the scope.
