SILVER SPRING, MD-Another component to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Food and Drug Administration’s new headquarters facility is in the making now that the US General Service Administration has begun work on the Central Shared Use Building. The 127,000-sf facility will be the “central hub” of the planned 14-structure, three-million-sf campus, which is being built on the former site of the Naval Surface Warfare Center in the Silver Spring’s White Oak submarket.

Upon its completion in 2006, the CSU Building will link the main entry of the main building to the campus commons. The four-story structure will provide a library, central conference and training facility, IT unit, cafeteria, fitness center, credit union and offices.

“GSA is breaking ground today for the core facility that will knit this entire, three-million-sf campus together,” Donald C. Williams, regional administrator for GSA’s National Capital Region, notes. “FDA employees will have in one central location facilities and services that will enhance their productivity on the job.”
