George Washington University - Corcoran School of the Arts & Design Renovation

This project is the third phase of a multi-phased, occupied renovation of the former Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, to support future academic and National Gallery of Art spaces. The gallery is located in the university’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, which was originally built in 1897 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This project includes critical upgrades to the building infrastructure, as well as upgrades to the HVAC system, including changing from steam to hot water generated on site. There will also be a new three-level, open-air platform to be built inside the existing courtyard to house new infrastructure equipment. This project also includes the addition of complete sprinkler coverage throughout the building and selective renovations of former galleries, which are to become university academic space.
