In a shared project referred by our Philadelphia partner, Tactix, The Tenant Agency (TTA) led Burns Engineering through a strategic review of their office space in the Navy Yard, Washington DC. 

Burns Engineering is a nationally respected provider of specialized engineering services, bringing highly-technical, sought-after engineering expertise to transportation and critical infrastructure projects. The engineering services provider operates in the US with 14 office locations. 

The Project 

The Tenant Agency was engaged by Burns Engineering to lead them through a strategic review of all options available in relation to their Navy Yard office space. This started with a space planning analysis to assess current and future office space needs, functionality, and design to create the optimal workplace. 

TTA then prepared a market survey of all potential opportunities within the established geographical and financial parameters, and provided a suggested tour list based on industry knowledge and market experience. 

Once the preferred properties were selected, TTA created a comparison matrix including preliminary financial analysis and engaged an architect to create test-fit plans. 

The Outcome 

Following a few rounds of negotiations, Burns Engineering selected the space that best accommodated their needs – a 4,583 SF property at 80 M Street, SE – and best and final terms were secured. The Tenant Agency, along with a real estate attorney guided Burns Engineering through the lease review process to ensure a seamless transaction, free of conflict of interest, occurred.
