Herbert Hoover Building – U.S. Department of Commerce

Washington Business Group provided construction management services for the class 3 historic Herbert Hoover Building which is headquarters for the Department of Commerce in Washington DC.

At the outset of this project the major building systems were technologically outdated and its exterior needed to be cleaned and re-pointed. This project required an upgrade to all its major building systems including a complete renovation and modernization to meet current codes including seismic, ADA accessibility, fire/life safety, etc. This project was divided into four phases.

Phase 1 included exterior cleaning and re-pointing, replacement of the cooling towers, primary electric systems, utility connections, select life-safety and ADA upgrades, installation of a green roof over courtyard 6, sprinklers and HVAC in the White House Visitors Center ceiling and the renovation of approximately 100,000SF of space in courtyard 6 infill.

Phases 2, 3, and 4 included installation of new interior security windows, installation of a new perimeter security system, replacement of electrical distribution, storm water, plumbing, HVAC,, ceiling, lighting systems, abatement of hazardous materials, and installation of new fire alarm and sprinkler system. Also were a remediation of existing structural issues, replacement of failing interior walls, retrofit of stairwells to mitigate seismic collapse and installation of other tenant improvements. The work during phases 2-4 renovated approximately 1 third of the building while the other 2 thirds remained occupied. WBG was instrumental throughout providing quality and cost effective design and document review.
