Global architecture and design firm NBBJ has opened an office in Washington D.C. The office, which will focus on commercial development as well as corporate workplace, healthcare and science projects, will also support NBBJ’s ongoing work with Amazon on its HQ2 project in Virginia.
The firm’s Washington, D.C. office, located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, is led by Commercial Practice Director Brad King and NBBJ Partner Timothy Johnson. In addition to staff who live in the region, the office will host teams from NBBJ’s global network of offices who work on projects locally. Among the focus areas for the office: design of mixed-use developments, corporate headquarters and the repositioning of real estate assets to meet changing work styles, health requirements and tenant needs.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity for building owners and tenants to re-evaluate their portfolios to ensure they remain competitive in the months and years to come,” said King. “From utilization and planning studies to light touch interventions and complete repositioning of existing assets, it’s important to focus on strategies that extend the life of current real assets and ensure new developments are viable, yet flexible to accommodate future change.”
