Quinn Evans Architects Headquarters

Washington, DC

A LEED®-Gold Design Studio

Mueller Associates worked closely with staff from Quinn Evans Architects, including members of the firm’s “Green Team,” to design the LEED-Gold tenant build-out for QEA’s new office in downtown Washington, DC. The office features open studio space along with conference areas, a multi-purpose resource area with a kitchen and dining space, a climate-controlled server room, and other support spaces.

The new headquarters brought all of QEA’s DC staff together on one floor, with extensive daylight throughout the space. Sustainable strategies for the office include an energy-efficient, 12-zone HVAC system engineered to optimize thermal comfort; a stringent indoor air quality system that provides increased air ventilation with CO2 and airflow measurement equipment to enhance tenant comfort and productivity; occupancy sensors and individual controls to minimize connected lighting power density; and low-flow plumbing fixtures for reduced water consumption.
