TEEL Construction, Inc. Headquarters

After nearly 28 years in our Great Falls, VA office, we chose the City of Fairfax as our home for the next 30 years.  Our team demolished the former 8,000 s.f. law firm to create an open – yet private – collaborative work environment for our home office team.  Working closely with the architect, we set out to balance the trendy open office work space with a series of perimeter offices clad with glass storefronts.  This allowed for abundant natural lighting to permeate throughout the floor plan which was supplemented with LED ambient-dimming lighting.  The public areas feature white oak millwork, painted structural decking and a charcoal-stained and polished concrete floor.  In order to move in before year end, the project was put on an accelerated schedule and completed in 7 weeks.

Kellogg Conference Hotel at Gallaudet University

Kellogg Conference Center Gallaudet University (1)

Renovation of 30,000 SF of offices on the 3rd floor of this existing, functioning and fully operating Kellogg Conference Center Hotel (KCC) into 29 hotel rooms at Gallaudet University.  The schedule was based upon getting rooms open and ready in preparation for a fully scheduled spring season of events where the Hotel Operator is counting on the additional revenue from these 29 rooms.  The biggest challenge that presented itself on this Project was working around the KCC events schedule and Hotel occupancy while still progressing the construction schedule.  Adding 29 bathrooms to the floor meant plenty of core drilling which couldn’t be done in the evening due to Hotel guests, above, and couldn’t be done in the day due to Conference Center Events, below. The project team was able to schedule and complete over 180 core drills, while balancing the Client’s needs with the progress of the job.

“I cannot speak more highly of my experience working with the TEEL team.  My experience with TEEL was seamless, cooperative, accommodating and completely in control. They came in on time and on budget. A rare situation these days.” – Carlo Alessi, CEO, Robelan (Owner’s Rep)
