Constitution Center, at 400 7th Street, SW in Washington D.C., occupies a full city block. A short distance from Capitol Hill, the Mall and many Federal agencies, the highly energy efficient and environmentally responsible building is the largest privately owned building in D.C., with roughly 1.4 million rentable square feet and another 680,000 square feet in an underground parking garage. When the building was renovated the owner wanted to upgrade the existing access control system in order to better manage tenant needs.
ASI proposed converting the existing access control system to a solution that was vendor neutral and could grow with Constitution Center as it added more badge readers and cameras to its system.
Occupants enjoy the benefit of the building’s cutting-edge technology and security standards that exceed ISC Level IV. And security staff now have the ability to respond to alarms immediately and provide better security for the building and tenants.
ASI designed and installed a new access control system on all doors, monitored turnstiles, magnetometer and a video camera solution.
