One Bethesda Center (OBC), a twelve-story office building located in downtown Bethesda, was constructed around 1985. The building has approximately 170,000 sq ft of office space and four levels of below-grade parking. The building features a stepped profile and is clad with bands of brick masonry alternating with ribbon windows.

Brookfield Financial Properties retained SGH to perform a due diligence assessment of the exterior walls, fenestration, and roofs of OBC as a precursor to their purchase of the building and subsequently retained SGH to conduct an investigation, prepare design documents and perform construction administration for the reclad of the building enclosure.
