This project in Chantilly, Va., involved a complete gut and technically complex renovation for Teleproductions International’s larger teleproductions studio.
The new facility includes 40 individual offices, studio space, three conference rooms, a 28-seat auditorium and a new elevator. High-end finishes include terrazzo, ceramic, hardwood and custom-cut patterned sheet vinyl floors; venetian plaster and polymix wall coverings; field-applied, fabric-wrapped wall panels and ceiling bulkheads; elegant cabinetry; and a 100-ft-long wave rolling ceiling, which runs the span of the main corridor.
A variety of electrical power obstacles had to be met during construction in order to meet the design intent, including enhanced sound and security isolation, re-feeding the main electrical feeds to meet the new load requirements and layout to meet the requirements of the audiovisual equipment being placed in the building.
Forrester completed the project in 10 months.
