Government Facilities Overview

Federal work in the Nation's capital requires understanding the design process, from formulating initial scope of work for bids on design-build jobs through review meetings with PENREN or other clients, to overseeing installation on site, to finalizing SOMMS and DMELS.


Dwyer Engineering provides commissioning assistance to General Contractors on Federal projects throughout the DC area. Providing verification that building systems are performing properly and meeting the design intent of the construction drawings is vital to government facilities.   As the Design Build Commissioning Team Leader, Dwyer Engineering helps ensure the general contractor is prepared for testing, reducing the need for re-testing and avoiding delays.  We also provide commissioning close-out documentation and organize building training on new systems.

Our work at the Pentagon has ranged from office remodels, to bathroom renovations, to new commercial kitchens. On each project, Dwyer Engineering’s technical expertise and knowledge of code has helped projects run smoothly and efficiently. Our work on the Army Senior's renovation at the Pentagon for Arriba Corporation included design drawings, construction quality control management and commissioning.  In addition to our Pentagon work, we  prepared drawings for a major renovation at a USPS facility's server labs, including the installation of dry coolers with UPS and generator backed up power to nationwide server racks.

If you need to build or renovate mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems in secure facility, we would be honored to help.

Client Comments

"When commissioning (Cx) projects for the Federal Government, we frequently get demands for performance or testing that are beyond the scope of our contract or are technically complex. We have been contracting Dwyer Engineering for several years to act as our Cx Agent. They ensure we are fully pre-tested in preparation for the final Cx and that any technically complex questions are addressed and resolved during the Cx. Having that level of knowledge on our side has saved us more money than Dwyer charges by eliminating rework and reducing schedule delays. "
