The FAA regional office project spanned more than five years and included a 300,000-square-foot Class A office building.

FAA NW Mountain Regional Office

Location: Des Moines

General contractor: Abbott Construction

This project was a new five-story, steel-framed, 300,000-square-foot Class-A office building with more than 1,200 parking spaces located on a 17-acre site. The project spanned over nine years and required extensive collaboration between the GSA, the FAA, the city of Auburn, the developer, the finance partner and the Port of Seattle. The building allowed the FAA to consolidate leased space from four sites into one, housing 1,600 employees and over 40 lines of business within the agency. The building is a level-3 secured federal facility, incorporating structural elements for blast resistance and to prevent progressive collapse. The interior scope included a large server room, two IDF rooms per floor, controlled-access critical environment area, cafeteria and a mix of open office system furniture areas, enclosed offices and conference rooms. Abbott also provided full tenant-improvement work. The project achieved LEED Gold certification for both shell and commercial interiors.
