Henry Adams provided MEP/FP engineering design services for the 414,150 SF, multi-family/mixed-use project.
The 11-story Waterfront Station provides residential space and plenty of amenities for the surrounding neighborhood. This facility provides retail, housing, cultural, and educational use for the community. There are 450 residential apartments and 133 are for affordable housing. There is 20,000 SF of retail space which includes restaurants and neighborhood service retail to provide accessible shops just a walk away. An educational space is provided on the ground floor for a Pre-K Charter School that includes a public playground. A 9,000 SF black box theater is located in the facility for use as an entertainment venue. This theater space is situated on the ground level with a private driveway and parking lot. The Waterfront Station enhances the surrounding area, creating a performing arts and cultural hub.
The mechanical scope includes HVAC and associated building controls. An energy efficient variable refrigerant system (VRF) system was used for the residential floors along with a dedicated outdoor air system that utilizes exhaust air energy recovery. The design includes mechanical ventilation for the parking garage, stair pressurization for smoke. The electrical scope includes power, lighting, and fire alarm installation. Designs were provided for emergency generator and power supply.
Located in Washington, DC, the Waterfront Station is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification through a combination of storm water, water-use, waste water, lighting, solar, and HVAC strategies.
