All core drills must be x-rayed and scheduled with building management at least 72hrs in advance.

There are other Tenants in the building and on campus, and we endeavor to promote a professional working atmosphere. It is important that each construction company engaging in any business at Willow Oaks promote this atmosphere, and we expect a professional attitude from each individual worker. These items should be addressed by each construction project manager to the crew and adhered to by all.
Thank you for your cooperation while working at the building. If you have any questions, please call the Management Office at 703-698-1888.
