WASHINGTON, DC-The stimulus bill delivered an extra boost to the DC construction industry last month with the award of a $435.4-million design-build contract for a new US Coast Guard headquarters at the West Campus of St. Elizabeth’s in Southeast Washington. Clark Construction led the winning team along with HOK, which will provide interior designs and architectural services.

Other building specs for the 1.2-million-square-foot project, which is being funded in part with $162 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, include accessibility standards mandated under the Architecture Barriers Act and at minimum a LEED-Silver design plan. Groundbreaking is scheduled for this month, with completion in 2013.

The project is not necessarily a complete win-win for the District though. Currently the Coast Guard occupies 592,000 square feet at 2100 2nd St.–a building owned by Monday Properties. The agency renewed its lease there at the end of last year for a 10-year term. Monday Properties did not return a call to GlobeSt.com in time for publication.
