They said we provided outstanding services, we said we were just doing our job

From site selection through commissioning, our team managed the entire architectural and engineering project team on behalf of General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) for this new Global Network Operations Facility. Our services included due diligence studies, retro-commissioning systems testing, program development, executive approval process support, vendor procurement, engineering, construction project management and commissioning.

In order to help GDIT find the best space for their operations facility, we analyzed two proposed sites. For each site we assessed the existing MEP systems and prepared schematic design solutions to give the client an idea of the possibilities of the space. We also provided a financial analysis of the requirements for modifying the space to meet GDIT's program.

Once our team made a recommendation as to which site to pursue, we helped the project get approval from the company's executive committee. After the project was approved, our team designed a 6,000 sq. ft. Tier II data center, a large Global Network Operations Center and 15,000 sq. ft. of support office space.

We feel great when we are able to help our clients go from their ideas for a project to a built project that realizes their goals. The icing on the cake for this project was that our team was recognized by GDIT's Senior Executive Management for outstanding service.
