We provided an internationally inspired design for PEPCO’s 10 story, 384,000 square foot of office space and 176,000 square foot of enclosed parking for 440 cars.
The building exterior responds to the site and surroundings. The glass curtain wall, with horizontal sun shading devices, curves back from the street and stops short of the corner and the ground level parking plaza. The east side is dominated with a precast facade with punched openings. Spectacular views of the monuments and the Capitol can be seen from the rooftop deck and gardens.
The firm led engineering consultants to a state of the art design. Energy conservation was a prime concern in the design of the building skin to attain a tight, efficient envelope. Structures were studied and value engineered to ensure minimal impact on the adjacent Metro tunnels. The overall building design has received high praise from PEPCO’s top officials and the architectural community.
