PSG began working with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) in 2005 as DOT embarked on the final stages of its new headquarters project. Located on an 11-acre parcel within the Southeast Federal Center in Washington, DC, the 1.9 million square foot complex consists of two towers, which houses the agency’s 5,700 employees.

PSG provided quality assurance and quality control for the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing systems. We also assisted with developing cost saving strategies by researching the latest equipment, design, and operations of post-9/11 security and emergency protocol for building management systems applications.
