DFS Construction converted an abandoned meat packing warehouse into a training facility for correctional officers for the DC Department of Corrections (DOC). The finished product included classrooms, cardio gym, fitness gyms, locker rooms, showers, offices, conference rooms, a stage for graduation ceremonies, open office areas for modular furniture, an employee break-room, a separate pantry, and two mock jail cells. The finished training facility was a far cry from the industrial, drive-in freezers and nine loading dock bays that facilitated the previous tenant’s use of the building. Not only did DOC win an award, but it was also LEED Certified and had a CBE participation exceeding 35%. Read more about this award-winning project
