How does an international law firm complete a LEED Gold, phased in-place renovation of 400,000 sf across nine floors in just five years?

An anchor tenant of Hines' Columbia Square since 1987, Hogan Lovells' goal for its US headquarters was to transform its DC office into the workplace of the future. With Hines' support and a strong consultant team that included Gensler, Dewberry, SBLD, Cerami, Davis Construction, and Sustainable Building Partners; Hogan Lovells emphasized change management, sustainability, and operations strategies to create a place for its attorneys and employees to be proud of.

During this presentation, you will learn about:

  • the real value and opportunity that can come from partnering with building ownership to remake an existing building rather than relocate;
  • Hogan Lovells' real estate and sustainability strategy in DC, and how their recent work is translating across the firm;
  • the process of designing for a "one team worldwide," community, live/work ethos expressed in formal and informal meeting areas, access to daylight, visual connectivity, and ergonomic workspaces; and
  • the benefits of certifying a large, phased commercial office project under the LEED-CI rating system utilizing the USGBC's master site, campus guidance application.

The presentation will close with a half hour building tour lead by the project team. Come see what the March 2017 issue of Washingtonian deemed What's New and Next in Washington Offices - A rooftop just as high-end as a new condo building complete with views of the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials and the Washington Monument!
