Project profile: Federal Center South Building 1202
Federal Center South Building 1202 is the result of responding to both the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Design Excellence program. The new 1202 building transforms a 4.6-acre brownfield site into a highly flexible and sustainable 209,000-square-foot regional headquarters for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Northwest District.
The project’s integrated design-build team developed a design and construction solution that fuses programmatic, functional, and aesthetic objectives with high-performance, cost-effective and sustainable workplace environments. The solution synthesizes the Design Excellence project standards, optimal performance, and community connectivity.
The project was delivered on time and within the original $65 million budget. The entire project was planned, programmed, and built in less than two and a half years.
