Milken Museum & Conference Center
Milken Museum & Conference Center: Washington, DC
Founded by Michael and Lowell Milken, the Milken Family Foundation aims to elevate education, by recognizing and rewarding outstanding educators and by encouraging learning as a lifelong process. The foundation is establishing a new interactive museum, event, conference, and office location. When complete, this facility will encompass three buildings in Washington, DC. The first building acquired as part of the project was the historic Riggs National Bank, a 5-story structure that is on the National Register and a DC-listed historic property. The rest of the property is made up by two contiguous buildings – a historic one-story bank hall and a twelve-story office building.
This project includes restoration of the historic facades of all three buildings, expansion of the bank hall building, and all new MEP systems for this total 199,940-SF compound. All three buildings will be connected by a six-story glass atrium, complete with a 60ft tall video wall, creating a cohesive space for desired functions. Along with conference and office space, the newly renovated facilities will include a theater, model classroom, broadcast studio, kitchens, private club and dining area.
Mechanical infrastructure for the project includes two 250-ton water cooled chillers, equipped with water side economizer, two 250-ton cooling towers, high efficiency gas fired condensing boilers, and an array of air cooled VRF condensing units serving indoor terminal units.
This facility will be designed to LEED Silver certification level.
