105,000-sf vertical mass timber expansion will cap D.C.’s 80 M Street

Tom Corrado, Hickok Cole

For this vertical expansion in Washington, DC’s Navy Yard neighborhood, two mass timber-framed floors of trophy class office space are being added to an existing seven-story building. An occupied penthouse level provides additional office density as well as a roof top terrace and social space. Join this session to hear the project architect describe the unique design challenges and solutions associated with this mass timber expansion, including code approvals, fire-resistance strategies, structural coordination with the existing building, and more.
