The large scale reconfiguration of the existing 2001 K Street and 2001 K Street NW office buildings in Washington DC will transform the two structures into “Alexander Court”, an 800,000 square foot comprehensive Class A building The project consists of a four-story vertical extension and new facade for the 2001 K Street NW building, and provides additional new public spaces for tenants, including a central glass atrium. Alexander Court will also feature improvements to the vertical transportation systems, MEP building systems, new storefronts, canopies and interior finishes. This project has been registered with the USGBC and has been designed to LEED Silver.
Owner's Design Criteria Consultant: Pelli Clarke Pelli.
The Architect: Fox Architects.
This project is a Federally funded 40 unit Tribal Housing project for the Hopi Nation, which includes 29 new houses and duplexes. 13 different models are being built. The housing is designed to meet or exceed Energy Star standards, and was designed with a LEED for Homes scorecard. They are designed as low maintenance, highly sustainable, and with extremely durable exterior and interior finishes. Site work involves extending all existing utilities on the adjacent site, and all road improvements. Sustainable landscaping includes native and native adapted plant species and rainwater harvesting. The site amenities will include a baseball diamond, a tot lot play area, walking trails, and a ramada meeting area. Site lighting was done with all LED fixtures with solar panels. The housing units will have natural gas heating and high efficiency cooling systems.

We engage on a wide variety of project types from multi-story high rise office buildings to LEED for homes low density residential developments. Our approach differs substantially from many of our colleagues where the traditional mode of coordination is: to read the drawings, read the specs and then try to make them match. If you are a user, we have software to interface with your Revit models. We include proposed design solutions made (or to be made), to serve as a master guide for the project from which all subsequent project documentation will flow in a logical sequence as major "elements" of the design.
Aid the design process by documenting decisions between the owner and the project team members.
Provide the reference points on which subsequent decisions and stages of the project will be based.
Provide the documentation basis for the owner’s approval of decisions made during the schematic and design development phase.
We provide draft architectural sections subdivided into respective divisions for your review.
We will coordinate sections with the schedule of finishes and materials in your graphic documents and assist with your keynoting.
Coordinate the selection of Agreements from the AIA, EJCDC, AGC or the DBIA menu of documents for any delivery system. This Design/Build project involved ten discliplines and the Owner.
Set up guidlines for Sustainable Design requirements and review product and assemblies selected for conformance for any uniform system of classification.
Specify General Commissioning Requirements and Commissioning Authority Responsibilities
