Dickstein Shapiro moved into International Square on K Street in Washington, D.C. An aspect of the renovation of the space formerly occupied by the IMF was to gut and redesign its cafeteria. This in-house cafeteria needed to compete successfully with a large public food court on the ground floor. To maximize the benefit of the Dickstein Shapiro foodservice system, HOPKINS was asked to lead the search for a full-time operator. When the project was in full-swing, the client expressed its delight that the entire spectrum of employees from top attorneys to admin assistants at Dickstein Shapiro enjoyed dining together for the first time. The cafeteria successfully changed the culture of the firm.

The Beyer Blinder Belle addition of a new penthouse floor, along with a complete gut-renovation of the Building E-52 conference center, will increase the number of events the building can host and the corresponding revenues gained. HOPKINS’ scope included renovation of a large production kitchen and a remote full-service bake shop, to which we added a third finishing kitchen on the penthouse level and catering pantries near all conference rooms.
This $112 million design–build project with Arrington Watkins and AECOM houses 960 high-security inmates along with an adjacent minimum security component for an additional 128 inmates. HOPKINS also designed the laundry operation.
