This project was a 55,000 square foot office relocation to two full floors and one partial floor at 1900 K Street NW. The rand* project team began work in a demolished tenant space, and worked with Hines and Cassidy Turley in order to execute proper phasing of construction in an occupied building. The scope of work included law offices, support staff offices, a conference center, and a vending cafe. Between Levels 12 and 13, rand* fabricated and installed an interconnecting feature stair, which required the re-cladding of the existing stringers and treads. The Dechert project consisted of high-end finishes, requiring a high level of coordination among trades. Superior Quality Management and Control on behalf of rand*’s project team was instrumental in achieving HOK’s design intent for the Dechert law offices.

The interior design of the space utilized refined, natural materials including glass partitions in the offices and conference center, wide corridors, and maximized flexible and open space to support both collaborative and quiet concentration work. Construction elements included: demountable glass partitions, custom millwork, an interconnecting stair, tile flooring, light fixtures, AV systems, IT integration, paint and wall covering, FF&E and high-end finishes. While this project did not seek LEED certification, rand* utilized best practices in order to achieve an environmentally-sound space. This project was completed on time and within budget, allowing Dechert to move into their new offices at the start of the new year.
