The ability to work within the detailed criteria that accompanies government contracts is something we at ThyssenKrupp are very familiar with. Over the years, our dedicated GSA team has worked hand-in-hand with the agency to ensure a seamless experience. From a local veterans hospital to a large campus project, we have the experience and equipment to get the job done.
Government facilities are often highly secure and require strict construction procedures. Our project at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Campus in Springfield, Virginia, required us to overcome challenges associated with not only high security, but also the building’s safety code requirements. The project is comprised of five total buildings, two of which are eight-story buildings joined by an atrium. The installation involved 39 elevators, including the atrium’s glass elevator installations. The constant changing dynamics of each working day took expert planning and coordination. ThyssenKrupp received the 2012 Craftsman Award from the Washington Building Congress for the effort and helped the project achieve a LEED Gold certification.
New construction of government buildings allows us to utilize the latest in safety and security technology with elevator systems. The new Social Security Administration offices in Maryland will occupy an 11-acre parcel and be 538,000 square feet. The projects will consist of a six-story office building, a seven-story office building, a 1,076-space parking facility and a daycare center at the site.
