Market Square - Prominently located on Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation's capital, the two buildings of this 1.3 million sf mixed-use complex curve around the U.S. Navy Memorial. A total of 26 massive five-story, solid limestone columns (each six feet in diameter and weighing 102 tons) line the crescent-shaped buildings, which are clad in granite, limestone, brick and precast. The buildings occupy two city blocks with 5 levels below grade (parking and retail) and 13 levels above (office and residential) and abut city streets on three sides. The presence of an underground transit tunnel and station on one side required the preparation of a special excavation design and documentation package to gain the transit authority's approval for the 55-foot excavation plan. Cardno's completion of this package within one month and our thorough documentation, which prompted quick approval, were instrumental in keeping the project on schedule.
