U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Hall of Flags

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which was established more than a century ago, holds the distinction of being the world's largest business organization. The 4,600-square-foot historic area was utilized for various events within the hall. However, the available pathways proved to be limited and, in numerous instances, presented accessibility challenges. These pathways traversed through existing office spaces with confined ceilings, low-ceiling basement areas housing various building systems, and two-story mechanical penthouse spaces, further complicating accessibility.

The project encompassed the preservation of the Hall's historic elements, installation of electrical and mechanical systems, implementation of fire suppression measures, and the relocation of fire alarm devices in coordination with the placement of a new AV system. Additionally, the building will incorporate low voltage cable pathways to accommodate new LED media screens, portable carts, floor boxes, cameras, speakers, and lighting, significantly enhancing the Chamber of Commerce's large meeting space's utility and flexibility.
