The Joint Venture of James G. Davis Construction Corporation and Gilford Construction (Davis/Gilford) conducted a multi-phase renovation and modernization on four floors (approximately 40,000 sf) of the AARP Foundation Headquarters in Washington, DC. Eighteen task order projects were conducted at the occupied 9-story plus penthouse office building.
Significant projects include:
Gilford worked in close coordination with the Building Manager and Facilities Management personnel during the design phase of each project to understand operational needs and facilitate stakeholder understanding of design alternatives. This collaboration amongst design, construction, and operations personnel resulted in selection of systems and materials for life-cycle costs, and considered long-term repair, replacement, maintenance, and facility operations for best value.
Work was conducted during non-business hours and weekends to minimize disruption.
