Rockledge Center

National Institutes of HealthBethesda, Maryland

Rockledge Center is a 495,000 square foot satellite campus that contains 15 agencies affiliated with the National Institutes of Health. CMTA provided MEP engineering for an $80M phased, occupied renovation of the property, including replacement of all MEP systems, the addition of a new cafeteria and conference center, and comprehensive site security upgrades. Synthesizing sometimes conflicting technical requirements from the 15 different federal sub-agencies and delivering a cohesive building design was key to the project’s success. A tremendous emphasis was also placed on coordinating MEP systems replacement into four project phases and delivering a modern, energy efficient, state-of-the-art federal workplace. The project is targeting LEED Silver certification.
