This 6.5 full floor major interior build-out was completed on an accelerated schedule. The installation of sophisticated A/V, cabling, infrastructure, mechanical, and electrical systems accommodated the different Veterans Affairs groups with very different missions and workspace requirements. Special-use areas include a central high-density filing room which required slab reinforcement with steel beams and additional concrete and hearing rooms; DIRTT Systems were installed with 1 floor receiving more than a mile of glass and aluminum partitions. A total of 45 high-tech conference rooms with state-of-the-art A/V capabilities were built throughout the tenant space.
Veterans Administration at 425 Eye Street NW is LEED® CI v3.0 Silver certified.
