This project was for the MEP engineering design for the renovation of Wing 1 from the basement to the 7th floor of the building located at 1800 F Street in Washington, DC in preparation for the 2016 Presidential Transition Team. The project was done in two (2) phases: first a full tenant fit-out design for the Post-Elect Presidential Transition Team (PTT), second was the restoration of the space to the pre-PTT conditions for GSA re-occupancy of the space. CFR designed new mechanical systems to properly cool and ventilate the space, modified, and designed new plumbing systems, power systems, lighting, fire alarm systems, and fire protection systems. The building contained existing historic materials that needed to be protected, which was achieved by working with the GSA Regional Historic Preservation Officer.
