The SEC Sation Place Building is a 10-story, 1,000,000 square foot structural concrete building with a glass curtainwall and granite exterior. Work included two below-grade parking levels and a below-grade theater-type meeting room and employee support services. Because the project location is immediately adjacent to the active railroad corridor serving Union Station, the side of the building facing the rail corridor was glazed with acoustically rated glass curtainwall. A unique feature of the building is the 80-foot high curved glass enclosed atrium that is composed of a cable net structure covered with glass panels bolted to stainless steel nodes at cable intersecting points. The cable net system creates the front wall of the atrium lobby as well as the ceiling of the lobby.

This project won a number of awards including the Associated General Contractors of Metropolitan Washington DC for excellence in construction, the 2007 Washington Building Congress Craftsmanship Award in the Finishes Category for Marble/Granite, the 2006 Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) DC Chapter – Excellence in Construction Award for Commercial Projects and the 2006 Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) DC Chapter – Washington Contractor Award for New Construction.
