HSU completed this award-winning 32,000 square foot design-build project at multiple locations within the Pentagon.

The scope included demolition, MEP, IT and Communications systems, custom systems furniture and complete tenant fit-out. At the beginning of the project, the team was provided with ten simple hand-drawn rough sketches. And over the course of design phase, working closely with all of the relevant stakeholders, the “simple” design/build tenant space translated into a detailed 70-page construction document set.

The custom “Smart” and “Academic” wall panels are state-of-the-art, intelligent design components. The Smart Walls were used to configure work areas, and all electrical and communication wiring and cabling was neatly and discretely contained inside. Each work station has independent access to its unique electrical and IT requirements. Each panel is movable and completely independent of the others.
