Owned by the Washington Gas Light Company, the Springfield Operations Center includes a 180,000 square-foot office building, a 75,000 square-foot industrial warehouse facility, and miscellaneous support structures. 

AEM was called upon to affirm the integrity of this expansive campus, which serves more than one million customers and supports natural gas distribution operations across metropolitan Washington, D.C. The Springfield Operations Center relied upon AEM’s technical, managerial, and evaluative skills throughout this project. 

Working against a tight timeframe, and partnering closely with the general contractor, AEM verified and documented quality performance of facilities, systems, and assemblies at the Springfield Operations Center. Our team coordinated all functions of final test and balancing efforts, constructed automated and integrated control systems for power management, tested HVAC functionality, and built envelope certifications. These efforts, coupled with clear and consistent communication with the client, enabled the Washington Gas Light Company to swiftly initiate operation of this impressive facility and its crucial resources.
