Federal Center South Building 1202 is the result of responding to both the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which focused on improving our nation’s infrastructure and creating jobs, and the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Design Excellence program which was established to procure the nation’s best architects in order to achieve the most innovative and high performance design in federal government building projects.

With reuse and high energy-performance as part of both the GSA and ARRA requirements, 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 while achieving a new standard for high-performance, cost-effective and sustainable workplace environments. The solution synthesizes the Design Excellence project standards, optimal performance, and community connectivity, all fundamental to environmentally responsive design and stewardship of the environment.

The project was delivered on time and within the original $65 million budget. The project team programmed, planned, and designed the project in under 18 weeks under a performance-based contract with 0.5% of the contract value being retained until confirmation of actual energy performance one year into occupancy. The entire project was planned, programmed, and built in less than two and a half years.
