Burns Engineering Expands Strategic Operations in Washington, D.C.
Burns today marks the expansion of our Mid-Atlantic operations with the official opening of the company’s Washington, D.C. strategic office.
To more efficiently deliver specialized engineering services for critical infrastructure, rail, transit and aviation projects throughout the Washington Metro region, this new operation will further position Burns for rapid growth among new and existing municipal, institutional and private clients.
Our new DC office is located in the Capitol Riverfront next to the sprawling U.S. Department of Transportation’s headquarters complex and a two-block walk from Metro’s Navy Yard station. When it’s time to unwind, the office is conveniently a short distance from Anacostia Riverfront and Nationals Ballpark. See our office locations
“I’m thrilled to be part of this exciting moment of Burns’ growth. Our team continues to make an impact on some of the most innovative infrastructure projects happening in and around our nation’s capital,” said Manager Derek Brown, who leads the Washington, D.C. office. “Our newest strategic office demonstrates our firm’s thoughtful investment to expand Burns’ presence throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.”
Highlights of our most-recent multidisciplinary rail and transit design work within the Washington region include:
- WMATA’s new Potomac Yard Metrorail Station in historic Alexandria;
- Amtrak’s high-level passenger platform at New Carrollton Station;
- Amtrak’s modernized crew base at Union Station; and
- Virginia Railway Express’s expanded midday railyard in the Ivy City neighborhood.
These projects add to our already-extensive engineering and technology design assignments for Reagan National (DCA), Dulles International (IAD), and Baltimore-Washington International/Thurgood Marshall (BWI) airports. We also perform omnibus project management office (PMO) roles directly for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).
We completed the Washington, D.C. office refit amid the coronavirus pandemic. Incorporated into office designs are new measures to ensure employees and visitors can observe and respect safe and appropriate social-distancing practices and related public health precautions.
