Our recent experience spans diverse project scales, types, and services, with a focus on realizing top value for our clients; on strengthening cities, campuses, and historic contexts for their constituents and neighbors; and on accelerating low- and net-zero-carbon solutions to the global climate crisis. It includes:
The first comprehensive urban sustainability and resiliency plan for the District of Columbia, which included a broad range of ambitious environmental, equity, and economic goals, all tied to specific actions and measurable goals between the present and the year 2032,
The 230,000 square foot health science and engineering research building at the University of Texas at Arlington (Carnegie R1), which has redefined the UTA campus and is stimulating important research and collaborative innovation across the institution and the state,
The winning proposal in the major urban competition for Amazon’s HQ2, and the design for its first 2.1 million square feet of new construction, which are driving the development of National Landing, from a dated, car-oriented business park into a walkable, 21st-century innovation district,
The 130,000 square foot building and 11-acre campus for KIPP DC College Prep, a tier 1, open-enrollment charter high school that educates 1000+ students, mainly from under-served minority communities, and challenges them to college-level performance in academics, athletics, and the arts.
Unique, highly technical, and mission-specific federal laboratories for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), developed through design-build competition wins with ENR top-15 contractors.
The strategic repositioning of the historic Union Trust building, performed on a tight budget in collaboration with the owner and leasing brokers, which led directly to significant new office tenancies and to the owner’s successful building sale and investment exit.
Successful, high-density multi-family residential developments in the D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City metro areas, each aimed squarely at ensuring developer/owner value, increasing neighborhood housing density and availability, and improving the public realm.
Major cultural and historic preservation projects, in Washington, New York, and Hong Kong, all focused on the careful stabilization of irreplaceable buildings, spaces and elements; and their optimization as artistic and public environments.
