National Public Radio, Inc. sought to relocate their world headquarters to the Art Deco building at 1111 North Capitol Street in Northeast Washington, DC.  Originally constructed in 1926 as a phone booth factory for the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, the reinforced concrete structure features a concrete facade with punched window openings.  SGH assessed the condition of the existing concrete facade and consulted on the building enclosure design for the adaptive reuse of the warehouse.
