GSA's Headquarters Modernization

GSA's Headquarters Modernization

May 2014

Bob Stafford started off by giving the delegates an overview of the GSA headquarters, including a little bit of its history. The GSA HQ was built in 1917 and was the first truly modern federal office building. The building took into account access to light and natural ventilation, and is built in an E-shape, thus facilitating both these factors. The building was last renovated in 1933, and in order to keep it as a viable location, it needed to be refurbished. The three main ideas behind undertaking this renovation were: the people who work there, the work that takes place in the building, and the actual place itself.
