GSA Thomas S. Foley Federal Courthouse

This project includes the design and construction required to modernize an existing 300,000+ sq ft, 9-story federal courthouse into a high-performance green building. Changes include replacement and upgrades to building systems (electrical, HVAC, plumbing and lighting) with a total infrastructure replacement while the building is occupied.

McKinstry will upgrade the building automation system, replace existing MZU/AHU/return-exhaust fans, cooling towers and associated equipment, renovate FCU’s on all floors, replace existing steam boilers with high efficiency hot water boilers for both the courthouse and the post office, perform a lighting upgrade, add ducting and VAV layout on the 2nd floor, repair windows and reseal, provide new domestic hot water for the courthouse and post office, replace existing HVAC piping, replace parking garage ventilation, add a domestic cold water booster pump system, replace existing steam unit heaters and coils with hot water equivalent, and rebalance the HVAC system. The project is targeting LEED® Silver certification.
