Building 58 Renovations, Washington Navy Yard - Washington, DC

With our design-build partner Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, Wiley|Wilson provided full architectural and engineering design for this renovation that provides state-of-the-art offices and courtroom space for the Judge Advocate General. Building 58 is a 48,840 SF, three-story brick building at Washington Navy Yard and was originally constructed circa 1850 and had major additions constructed in the early 1900s.

The work included extensive interior demolition of all interior finishes and building systems and hazardous material remediation. All new building systems (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, tel/data) and interior finishes were provided. Exterior work included waterproofing of the exterior basement walls and cleaning/ repainting of the building façade.

Of particular challenge to this project was the load-bearing brick and timber framed building structure was retrofitted to meet progressive collapse avoidance criteria as required by UFC 4-023-03 “Design of Building Structures to Avoid Progressive Collapse.” Innovative and complex interior structural modifications were performed to achieve the required structural redundancies and capacities required by the UFC criteria.
