Located in the recently built 1000 Connecticut Building in downtown Washington, D.C., Arent Fox's 235,000-sq-ft leased space is spread across levels Nos. 2 through 8 and portions of the first level. The interior fit-out project created offices, workspaces, conference rooms, a 150-seat auditorium and galleys.
Despite the complex design features and nine-month schedule, the project was delivered on time. There were no lost-time accidents or OSHA-recordable incidents during the 100,000 work-hours logged on the job.
