The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics – Bay Area Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

The + was involving all stakeholders early in the project to avoid any design or construction issues and enable a seamless transition from the previous location to the new one.

This 12,000 sq.ft. project included a complete demo and build-out for a new state-of-the-art orthopaedic and sports medicine center in Hanover, MD. The build-out included three imaging rooms, multiple exam rooms and office space as well as a complete physical therapy space with treatment tables and gym equipment so patients can continue treatment within the same facility.


The Butchers Club of Maple Lawn

The + was collaborating with the design team to deliver custom (non-standard) features and high-end finishes while working seamlessly around occupied tenants in a high-traffic retail area.

In this full-space renovation, KasCon transformed a sub shop into a high-end butcher shop and club.  This project included full demolition, a completely new kitchen and equipment, display cases, preparation area, electrical gear, HVAC, plumbing/fixtures, and restrooms. The high-end look required  boutique lighting, custom signage and art, high-end finishes and millwork, as well as custom retail shelving and merchandising areas.


MedStar Health: Urgent Care at Ballston

The + was navigating through many scheduling obstacles to open the space on time to service the incoming student body at Marymount University.

This interior fit out project included complete demolition of a 3304 sq. ft. formal café transforming the space into a new, clean and modern urgent care facility with easy access from street level and from the building garage. The space features a  reception/check-in area and waiting room, six private exam rooms, an x-ray room, lab area and new single-use restrooms. The combination of modern finishes (flooring, high ceilings, bright lighting) and accent colors create not only a fresh clean look but a sense of warmth to the space. 

Warrior Academy of Gymnastics

The + was KasCon leading the design/build including all planning stages of the project, helping to keep the budget in line with expectations.

This project was a full design/build where we provided budget planning costs in the beginning stages to help bring the project to life. Hiring and effectively managing the design team allowed us to streamline the permit process and obtain the permit more quickly than is typical in Anne Arundel County. We transformed a former production warehouse into a multi-functional gymnastics facility with a new waiting area, gang restrooms, and staff/break/administration areas (inclusive of all new MEP and finishes).  The gym area has an open concept design where we installed a recessed trampoline pit and recessed foam pits with varying depths ranging from 2’ – 12’.  In addition, we worked closely with the landlord to bring the façade and parking lot up to required status, inclusive of ADA upgrades.

Frisco Taphouse

The + was leading this complex design/build project with several design teams towards delivering a single client vision.

KasCon converted a retail storage warehouse (19,000 SF) into a one-of-a-kind brewery, restaurant and entertainment venue for longtime customer Frisco Taphouse. KasCon has worked with Frisco on four locations. For this latest project,  we coordinated with BGE on building upgrades for gas and electric with the space requiring completely new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The project used high-end bar finishes and live-edge wood throughout, as well as a state-of-the-art video wall complete with a stage with sound and lighting in the concert area.  Custom lighting, tile, glass, wall graphics, wood, AV and sound proofing features were installed.  The space included three full bars, a commercial kitchen, and a brewery (20 bbl system).  KasCon coordinated all kitchen and brewery equipment as well as the associated component installations. We built a new exterior, elevated concrete patio, complete with custom rail and drink ledge features as well as fire pits and full tree tables (weighing over eight tons each), as well as new ADA sidewalk systems.  Substantial structural improvements were required for the slab and the roof.

Clarks Ace Hardware

The + was developing a creative and aggressive schedule that allowed the client to set up their retail aisles as each section was completed in order to meet a hard store opening date.

This interior/exterior renovation project utilized a design-build approach. Early in the project’s life cycle, meetings were held to understand Clarks Ace Hardware’s vision. KasCon then interviewed and hired the design team. The project itself showcased a new storefront entry vestibule with glass wall features, a vibrant showroom with painted open ceilings, a new exterior fenced-in area for propane distribution and a new 30-ton HVAC rooftop unit. KasCon worked hand-in-hand with the Ace Hardware corporate headquarters to enable new flooring, lighting and aisle racking to be installed simultaneously and section by section, which allowed Clarks Ace Hardware to open their store in time for their Labor Day deadline.

Center for Advanced Orthopaedics

The + is establishing a realistic timeline to enable a seamless move-in despite challenges including navigating an occupied renovation as well as extended material lead-times.

This interior renovation project included combining two separate former office suites into a singular medical space. The facility has the look of a fitness gym featuring exposed painted roof deck ceilings, high-bay light fixtures and medical-grade heat-welded vinyl flooring. The new reception desk casework features solid surface countertops with integral radiused glass to welcome all new patients. New partitions within the fitness equipment area were finished with medical-grade wall covering to allow for optimal cleanliness.

Professional Vision

The + is working closely with the owner to ensure every detail reflected the new look for this long-standing practice.

This project included a first generation build out for the relocation of a long-standing local eye exam practice in the newly renovated Normandy Shopping Center.  The space features a large reception waiting area and an eye glass selection center, six new private exam rooms, a lab for eye glass fabrication, an administration office, and three new single-use restrooms. The space is full of bold colors, modern flooring, high ceilings, bright lighting and clean finishes.


Airport Plaza II – Ground Floor / Plaza / Parking Garage Upgrades

The + was maintaining full access for all building tenants and visitors throughout the complex, multi-phase project.

KasCon performed a full demolition and rebuild of the existing ground floor at a 12-story office building in Arlington, VA, while the building was fully occupied.  Ground floor improvements consisted of a new conference center, lounge, restrooms, kitchen, and telephone rooms, a full HVAC upgrade to the ground floor, and all new lighting and lighting controls throughout.  High end finishes included: large format stone wall panels, large format millwork wall panels and floor finishes of stone tile, vinyl and carpet.

The project also included full exterior plaza area rebuild with new colored concrete, masonry pavers / patio, landscaping, waterproofing, fencing, lighting, and paint.  KasCon was tasked with renovating the main lobby as well as the parking garage elevator lobbies in addition to all building elevators.  We built a new two-story glass and steel entry vestibule and connected it to the existing building.  The building was also outfitted with a brand new BMS system and full security controls.

Maintaining ADA access and building egress for tenants during construction was the priority for this project. KasCon was able to maintain access through a series of temporary walls, ramps, barricades and signage; shifting in a modular fashion as needed at each phase transition.

IG Labs Expansion

The + was working closely with the design team and landlord from the inception of the project to convey the look that was desired while delivering on time.

After completing the IntelliGenesis corporate office renovations, KasCon was asked to return and create a very different space for IG Labs, a division of IntelliGenesis. Although part of the umbrella IntelliGenesis family, the design was intended to have a very industrial look with open ceilings, creative lighting, glass walls and doors. In order to support the various 3D printing operations, we had to fabricate a custom exhaust system. Also, unique to the project was rigging and installing a 20-foot-long overhead door to the 4th floor of the building. The end result was exactly the look that was envisioned from the first design meeting.
