General Services Administration
Sometimes we build the very halls of justice — like on this project in Cleveland. The contract for the historic renovation and modernization of the five-story, 235,632 SF U.S. Courthouse, built in the early 1900s, involved dck providing preconstruction and construction services. Work included the preservation of two ceremonial courtrooms for historical significance; restoration of public spaces; space alterations and demolition; replacement of the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, life safety, lighting and electrical systems; and elevators. The scope also included asbestos and lead abatement, as well as exterior tucking, pointing and cleaning.
This renovated courthouse was not only LEED certified but also the recipient of six prestigious awards, including the Trustees Award for Preservation from the Cleveland Restoration Society and the Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award from the Ohio Historical Society.
dck knows how we work, what quality we and our very particular tenants expected and demanded, and were very familiar with our rules, regulations, and limitations. Their highly talented and dedicated staff's attention to detail and concern for accuracy was always evident and it is clear that dck has kept THIS client's best interest in the highest regards at all times throughout the life of both of these projects.
