General Service Administration - B.H. Whipple Federal Building

Investing & Preserving:  Funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the project included a complete facility modernization and a systems upgrade, with a focus on energy reduction, sustainability and public safety.  The modernization included demolition, abatement, fireproofing the steel structure, providing replacement of all MEP systems and a new geothermal field and architectural upgrades per GSA PBS-100 guidelines. The goal was to bring the existing and new building beyond current efficiency standards for MEP, as well as meeting physical and environmental goals for the building tenants.

The building was partially occupied during the renovation. The facility is 9 stories and houses 1,600 employees. There were 33 separate tenants whose spaces were upgraded. This project also included new construction of a 10,000 SF Sallyport and Vehicle Storage.

 

Performing: Energy efficiencies included  50% reduction in potable water for landscape and irrigation, 40% reduction in wasted water due to high efficient plumbing fixtures and no building cooling tower, 44% optimized energy performance, 89% of construction waste salvaged or recycled, and $33,000 in water and heat savings yearly.  LEED Gold was achieved.

CPMI was CMa and duties included ensuring that the GSA requirements with regard to scope, schedule, budget and quality were met.  We provided preconstruction and construction phase services over a 5 year period. Duties included design review, value engineering, reconciling cost estimates, contract negotiations, coordination of the design team, contractor, and commissioning agent, move coordination and tenant change review, quality review, meeting documentation, close out. We had multiple staff on-site full time.
