GHT provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services for Williams & Connolly’s new offices at 670 & 680 Maine Avenue, SW. As the core and shell was being newly constructed, GHT was secured as the MEP engineer to assist with required tenant modifications and upgrades to the base building, including studying options and scenarios for their new offices.
The new offices span 300,000 SF and two buildings, connected by “The Oculus”, a glass bridge connecting the offices’ second levels, creating a porte-cochere entrance for the two buildings. GHT provided MEP engineering design for Floors 1-10 and a Penthouse, to include open workspaces and private offices, conference rooms of varying sizes, huddle rooms, an interconnecting stair, reception and elevator lobbies, filing/copy rooms, and pantries. The second floor includes a conference center with a breakout area, as well as catering spaces. The project will also include a commercial kitchen with a servery, SCIF spaces and a library for reference materials.
