McKissack studied design solutions for the full renovations of campus wide programs for the University of the District of Columbia.
For the main university library, McKissack redesigned lighting and mechanical systems to allow for a variety of tasks and to increase energy efficiency and sustainability. Acoustic improvements were implemented to minimize noise transfer. The School of Business and Public Administration, originally comprised approximately 40,000-sq-ft, was consolidated onto floors 1, 2, 3 and B of Building 38. The current layout creates a new visible identity for the Business School along the front of the school, which faces Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Street. The facility includes state-of-the-art classrooms, offices, conference spaces and the 2-story “Windows Lounge.”
