Mission-Critical Facilities

The General Services Administration commissioned Schwartz/Silver Architects and CDFL Architects to modernize the building systems and interiors of the Dr. A.H. McCoy Federal Building in Jackson, Miss. The renovation included the addition of a curved entry pavilion clad in glass and metal panels.

Designed by Fentress Architects and Hensel Phelps Construction Co., the 719,000-square-foot Military Department Investigative Agencies Headquarters in Quantico, Va., was designed and built in 30 months. The facility exemplifies the accelerated schedule of mission-critical projects, which want to implement the latest in security technologies expeditiously.

The LEED Gold–certified U.S. Army Forces Command Headquarters in Fort Bragg, N.C., by Fentress Architects and Hensel Phelps Construction Co. complies with the Department of Defense’s “Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.”

Designed by Rees, the Texas Department of Transportation District Office includes a double-height control room in which staff members continuously monitor traffic conditions throughout Dallas. The center also acts as a communication hub and emergency management headquarters.
