650 Massachusetts Avenue


WAI has performed studies and designs for ten projects throughout the 650 Massachusetts Avenue building, including:

  • A 24 hour chilled water HVAC system for special use areas for the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms (ATF).
  • A new SCIF facility for ATF
  • Base building mechanical systems for several areas. WAI designed built-up central station chilled water air handling units and major modifications to the mechanical smoke evacuation system for the C2 level (ATF).
  • Tenant office fit-ups for both Federal and private users. These required modifications to: electrical distribution systems, rearrangements of mechanical systems, lighting, and the addition of new fire alarm controls.
  • WAI performed a study to construct a water reclamation system using a 20 gpm natural spring in the basement as make-up water for the cooling towers. This reclamation system was estimated to provide a net operating cost savings of $30,000 per year with a pay back period of 2.5 years.
  • Commissioning services.
  • Outside air (IAQ), energy studies and PEPCO Rebate consulting.
