Building 183

Project Details:
City, State:Washington, DC
Sector(s):LEED & Green Program, U.S. Federal
Service(s) Performed:Design/Engineer, General Contracting

Allen & Shariff Engineering and Construction divisions provided design/build services to transition WYN 183 into a secured facility.  Architectural enhancements to the building required advance approval from the State Historic Preservation Organization (SHPO). The renovation provides office space and highly-secured areas within the building for three distinct Naval support activities.

Sustainable principles were implemented and the project was designed for LEED Silver certification. The project meets Progressive Collapse and Anti-terrorism and Force Protection (AT/FP) requirements and fully complies with UFC 4-010-01. New equipment includes a floor-mounted wheelchair lift.

The project was complex and challenging due to the high security requirements and extremely accelerated design and construction schedule. The accelerated nature of the project required a rigorous and intensive collaborative communication effort that exchanged between the clients, engineers, architects, subcontractors, and Allen & Shariff.
