ERO OPLA Expansion
This project included the expansion and construction of office space and detention facilities throughout the Rosa Parks Federal Building. The building consists of two main components: the Historic Building and the Annex Building. The Historic Building has 3 stories, an attic, and a basement. The Annex Building has 2 stories and a basement.
New work included steel stud and gypsum board acoustically rated walls; plastic laminate cabinetry; doors and hardware; painting; carpet; anti-static floor tile; ceiling systems; providing a complete turn-key security system; receptacles; data outlets; lighting; fire alarm modifications; fire sprinkler modifications; plumbing; replacing the air handler unit in both buildings, ductwork, and HVAC controls. The renovation included 2 phases. Phase 1 work included the complete renovation of the first and second floors of the Annex Building and the replacement of the air handler unit in the basement of the Annex. Phase 2 work included the complete renovation of the basement, first, second and third floors of the Historic Building and the replacement of the air handler unit in the attic. A stair tower for a fire escape was also added. Careful coordination of design with the GSA Historic Preservation Branch was required for the corridors of the Historic Building.
