Client Feedback

"This extremely difficult, mulit-phased project went very smoothly thanks to Williams Notaro's thorough understanding of the Washington Post infrastructure and how to work in occupied buildings. I would not want to do a project like this with anyone else!"

The Washington Post Headquarter Renovation - 8th and 9th Floors

The Washington Post on 15th Street in Washington, D.C., with Williams Notaro's assistance, had been systematically renovating its headquarters building for over 20 years.  One of the last projects in the phased renovation process was to re-purpose the roof top  open garden court for executive office expansion space.  The new space provided an area for additional executive offices, a high-end conference center, and a full cooking kitchen.

The existing executive area on the 8th and 9th floors were also renovated to receive modern infrastructure systems including state of the art audio/visual systems, additional meeting facilities, and high end offices. Williams Notaro worked closely with the architect to successfully coordinate the design, and minimize coordination and construction problems in the occupied executive spaces.
