Washington Gas (WGL) had a need to relocate their headquarters to the newly developed District Wharf. The move required extensive coordination and communication due to the aggressive schedule and delivery of the space being performed concurrently with the base building construction. In order to maintain the requested move-in date, rand* was on-boarded to the project during preconstruction to aid in pricing exercises, material selection, constructability reviews, design development, and long-lead material designation. The preconstruction period was vital for developing coordinated workplans with major subs for critical scope. This period also allowed for coordination with the base building contractor and owner vendors to develop an integrated project schedule tracking milestones for the base building commissioning dates to coordinated infrastructure construction and turnover dates for equipment, cabling, and furniture.
The scope of work included private offices, open office, boardrooms, breakrooms + pantries, restrooms, elevator lobbies, and reception area highlighted by exposed ceilings, cloud ceilings, custom stone, and baffled ceilings. The project spanned three floors and housed numerous custom materials most notably the millwork, lighting, architectural metals, and glass packages. LEED-CI Gold certification was obtained to meet the Wharf sustainability standards.
