Washington, DC | 28,000 sf

The interior build-out for Travelex features over 28,000 sf of custom finishes, specialty architectural accents, and increased mechanical and electrical infrastructure. Strong team collaboration and constant communication kept the project on its original 14-week schedule despite a 20% increase to project space and the addition of renovations to the multi-tenant common corridor. From the day of award, rand* and FOX Architects recognized the unique challenges that lay ahead and immediately began coordinating with vendors and subcontractors to overcome the task of procuring specialty finishes in time to achieve critical milestones.

Each challenge presented by the Travelex space was overcome through collaboration of the design and construction team. Each individual hurdle presented through the tight schedule, increase in scope, custom finishes, complex MEP infrastructure and specialty finishes could have prevented the project’s success; however, the team ultimately overcame each hurdle and achieved perfection at the Travelex offices.
