Perkins Eastman Announces Expansion of Washington, DC, Office to New Downtown Location

Project Diversity and Regional Opportunities Fuel Growth in 2016

The executive committee of top international design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman is pleased to announce that the firm’s Washington, DC, office has moved to a new space at One Thomas Circle. The new office occupies the second and third floors, including an outdoor terrace, of the 12-story building, which was completed in 1982 and renovated to meet LEED-Gold certification in 2003.

Upon the relocation of the staff of ForrestPerkins—which formally joined Perkins Eastman at the start of 2016—the total employee count in Perkins Eastman’s Washington, DC, office will be 120 people.

Dan Cinelli FAIA, Executive Director and Managing Principal of the Washington, DC, office, says of the move, “Our new, expanded location at One Thomas Circle will allow us to continue enhancing our ability to serve our clients at the highest level. This move supports our continued growth and expansion and the design of the new space underscores our commitment to creativity, collaboration, and sustainability—to both our clients and our employees.”

Major projects underway in the Washington, DC, office include: Warwick Paradise Island, a transformation of the former all-inclusive property to a more exclusive destination that takes inspiration from its Bahamian culture; a series of projects for St. Johns College High School, the latest of which encompass a new arts wing, new student center, and expansion of the athletic center; Ingleside at King Farm, an expansion and renovation of the existing continuing care retirement community campus in Rockville, Maryland; and George Mason Academic VII, a new health sciences building that will help position Mason as the premiere research university in the Washington, DC, region.
