The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Headquarters project is a complete renovation and modernization of an existing federal building at 1700 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20552, originally known as the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB) Headquarters. It was built in 1976 and is bounded by G Street to the north, 17th Street to the east, the Winder building to the south and an existing building to the west, as well as a large outdoor open plaza.
The facility is a six-story high-rise LEED Gold certified building, designed to P100 standards. The gross building area is approximately 503,000 square feet, which consists of 319,916 square feet above grade and 182,683 square feet below grade. The project involves significant improvements to the overall building including: site improvements, structural modifications, interior architectural finishes, glazing systems, elevator systems and life safety systems including: fire protection, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, security and fire alarm systems.
JVP, as a consultant to CallisonRTKL, is performing the necessary design services for the mechanical (HVAC and plumbing), electrical and fire protection systems. Since this is a federal building, all access to the building is controlled and secured at all times. Additionally, all services are being provided while the building is occupied and operational.
