Date of Completion: July 13, 2013
Gilbane Building Company and Grunley Construction Company serve as Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) for Construction Services for Phases 2 and 3 to modernize the Herbert C. Hoover Building in downtown Washington, DC. The building serves as the headquarters for the U.S. Department of Commerce and houses 3,000 staff. The building remains 100% occupied during construction.
Phase 2 is for the renovation of an existing structure in Courtyard #1 to serve as the main mechanical chiller room in the basement. On top of this courtyard structure, we will construct a new three story building to house mechanical systems. In addition, new space will be provided for the National Aquarium and seven floors of office space along the Constitution Avenue side of the building. Phase 2 also includes new green roofs, the installation of all of the site utilities and new exterior upgrades. Plus, the exterior of the building will be cleaned and repointing will take place at select locations. Phase 3 is for the renovation of the second corridor of the building, which is primarily office space.
The entire Hoover modernization consists of eight phases spanning 13 years. The project is seeking LEED NC 2.0 Silver.
