Project Overview

  • Core/shell construction to support a future biotech tenants with flexible lab and office configurations
  • Deep foundation work for three-stories of below-grade excavation requiring cross lot bracing and slurry walls
  • Mechanical penthouse provides all air and ventilation needs for lab and office spaces

Consigli provided pre-construction services for a new five-story office building with a sixth-floor mechanical penthouse and a three-story, 258-space parking garage below. The core/shell structure is designed to accommodate biotech tenants with half lab and half office.

Construction commenced with deep excavation of an existing surface parking lot requiring cross-lot bracing and slurry walls. The steel structure was clad in glass curtain wall and brick with punched aluminum windows and storefront. The ground floor includes retail shell space as well as a finished lobby with premium, large-format ceramic tile flooring and specialty ceilings, millwork wood paneled wall surfaces and security desk. A large custom deck was completed by Consigli’s self perform branch, Riggs.

The mechanical penthouse was outfitted with equipment to support future lab operations. M/E/P/HVAC equipment includes two air handling units (AHUs) with hot and chilled water, six high plume exhaust fans and four air-cooled chillers with Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) screw compressors. The project was built to meet LEED Silver certification.
