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.
