Design-Build

Design-Build for Prettyman Courthouse Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court (FISC) Buildout, Washington D.C.

As prime, KC executed this design-build project for the GSA. The work order priorities were established in phases to execute the project in a sequenced approach and consider the needs and desires of the tenant agencies, budget constraints, and limitations. The MEP system was designed to meet U.S. Court Design Guide requirements. KC worked under strict compliance with all building security regulations, as well as historical preservation for the restoration and rehabilitation of the courthouse. The five phases were as follows; Phase I – Mechanical Room and Existing SCIF (Room 3219-6) IT Room Expansion; Phase II – Clerk of Courts Office Suite; Phase III – Amicus Suite; Phase IV – Presiding Judge’s Chambers; Phase V – Existing SCIF Renovation and SCIF Storage. In accordance to the different phases, KC provided wall and ceiling construction, new plumbing, paint and carpet, sprinkler/fire alarms, lighting and controls, HVAC and controls, IT/AV conduits/cabling, access control, intrusion detection, demolition, doors/framing, radiant barrier, SCIF design and construction, screening facility design and construction, and integrated security systems. KC worked during the evenings and nights in an occupied work space. All work was completed during “off-hours” and weekends to minimize disruption and accomplish the project on schedule.
