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.

U.S. Embassy, London

The sale of the existing urban facility provided ample funds to purchase new land in a remote London suburb and to hire Kieran Timberlake to design a striking new embassy. Its expansive, light-filled cafeteria was designed to host important embassy events formerly held off-site at great expense. To add to the benefits, a new cafe offers a perfect venue for staff happy hours.

This new $25 million facility is the first of more than 20 State Department Bureau of Overseas Building Operations’ projects with HOPKINS that make use of various teams and an array of contracting methods.
