Office Building: Computer Science Center
Computer Science Center

New 325,000 sf office building to accommodate employees of Computer Sciences Corporation working on a government contract. Site work included demolishing existing structures, excavating and removing approximately 200,000 cubic yards of materials, installing site utilities, parking for 1,300 vehicles, and site lighting. Building highlights included cast-in-place concrete frame; marble base with storefront glass to the second floor, E.I.F.S. with glazing (Floors 3-12); and two roof-top cooling towers. The 270,000 sf interior fitout (10 floors) encompassed Class A office space, auditorium, data center, six passenger elevators, small kitchen facility, and loading area. Access to all floors and interior spaces is via door card readers and security is monitored with high-tech cameras. The data center is equipped with a UPS system and redundant communications are maintained via two independent service providers. Gilford provided General Contracting from project inception to completion. We also provided strategic design and project management consulting in support of the facilitys structured cabling infrastructure. The $32 million project was completed 3-1/2 months ahead of schedule, saving the owner over $500,000 in construction costs.
