George Mason University - Fairfax, VA
Encon Group Inc worked on the $47.5 million contract to design and build a 216,700 square‐foot student housing complex at George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus. The Northwest Housing VIII‐A complex, which will feature 609 student beds in two buildings, helps George Mason further its strategy of creating an active 24/7 community at its Fairfax Campus to attract the best students, faculty and staff. With construction wraping up students are set to move into the facility in spring of 2012. For more on this project click here
The buildings, of up to seven stories, will provide mostly four‐bed suites for the students. These cast‐in‐place concrete structures will have durable facades of brick, metal panels and glass curtain wall, and standing‐seam metal roofs. The project is being designed and will be built to meet USGBC’s LEED Silver sustainability standards.

Aronson & Co. - Rockville, MD
Encon provided services which include mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and life safety design for approximately 75,000 square feet for the tenant build out of Aronson’s new headquarters located in Rockville, MD. This project has the following components: multiple conference rooms, closed and open office areas, pantry areas, high density filing area, server room and IDF closets, and reception.
Prior to the selection of the new headquarters location, Encon assisted the project team in performing a MEP and FP location analysis of two proposed locations.
Our scope of work included visits to the project site as required during the preparation of the design documents to survey existing conditions, meetings with the project team, and internal document coordination meetings.
The World Bank - Washington , D.C.
Encon Group as the prime design professional consultant provided mechanical, electrical, and structural engineering services for the replacement of three (3) existing 450 ton R-11 centrifugal with three (3) new 450 R-134A frictionless centrifugal chillers.
This project was the second phase of the building’s mechanical plant upgrade which included the replacement of two (2) 2-cell existing cooling towers with four (4) 338 ton new cooling towers which was completed during the second quarter of 2005. As the prime design professional consultant for both projects, Encon Group performed a life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) for two (2) alternate cooling towers and six (6) alternate chillers. The analysis revealed the best selection base on first cost, operating and maintenance costs over the projected equipment life cycle.
