Helicopter Association International Headquarters Commences Construction

Original architect for the building guides new building owners in creating international
headquarters offices.


ALEXANDRIA, Va. George Eisenberger, AIA LEED AP, – Principal at Michael Winstanley Architects & Planners (MWAP) is pleased to announce the completion of design and commencement of construction for the new two-story, 32,000 SF headquarters of the Helicopter Association International (HAI) at 1920 Ballenger Avenue in Alexandria, VA.  Michael Winstanley Architects & Planners has provided full interior design services, including FF&E, for this signature project.  Rand Construction has been selected as the General Contractor.  The project is expected to be completed by March, 2013.

HAI purchased this 4-story building from LCOR earlier in 2012.  Mr. Eisenberger was previously the architect for this base-building design along with a companion building in the heart of the Carlyle Complex, adjacent to the Patent and Trademark Headquarters.  With the current owners, MWAP is continuing this relationship by providing leasing support for the street-level and second floors.

“There are not that many times in one’s career that you get the chance to design the entire building.”  Says George Eisenberger, AIA, LEED AP.   “We are grateful to HAI for their selection of our firm to design their headquarters.  HAI has been a great client with a very clear vision of what they wanted in their new space and the building.  We look forward to working with HAI representing their interests in leasing out the balance of the building.”
