Update on Corps of Engineers Building Status

     The Huntington District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the General Services Administration (GSA) are continuing to work together to solve the challenge of making the planned improvements to the Federal Building at 502 Eighth Street in Huntington, W.Va.

      Plans call for GSA improvements to be made to the federal building to increase energy efficiency.  At the same time, the agencies are looking at solutions that will bring the Federal Building into compliance with the Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) for security requirements.

      “The Corps of Engineers and GSA will continue to work together to arrive at a solution that meets federal requirements and provides a safe work environment for Corps of Engineers employees,” said Colonel Robert Peterson, Commander for the Huntington District. 

      Studies are underway to determine how the work can be accomplished in an occupied or partially occupied building.  During construction activities, it is anticipated the majority of Corps employees will remain in the Federal Building while the work is being completed and that most construction will be performed at night to minimize impacts to the work force.

     As details are worked out, further updates will be provided. For more information contact the Public Affairs Office at 304-399-5353.
