Dept. of Human Services Office Building Renovation
Another phase of DTZ's renovation to their 64 New York Avenue office building in Washington, D.C., Williams Notaro and Fanelli McClain were contracted to design the office space for the Dept. of Human Services. This project included the design of conference rooms, two pantries, a double-divided training center with modular partitions, a LAN room, and general open and closed office areas across two floors, all of which would achieve LEED Gold certification.
A specific requirement of the LAN room was the addition of a supplemental split air conditioning system to provide dedicated cooling for the equipment, independent from the base building HVAC system. Williams Notaro also had to coordinate the simultaneous installation of a stand-by generator, designed as a separate independent project, to ensure the tenant's back-up power requirements would be met upon occupation.
