McKinstry Wins Design-Build Contract for Spokane’s Thomas S. Foley U.S. Courthouse

April 2010

McKinstry, along with Lydig Construction Inc. of Spokane, has been awarded a design-build contract to turn Spokane’s Thomas S. Foley U.S. Courthouse into a high-performance, green building.

The project team, expected to begin work this summer, includes local companies Integrus Architecture, DEI Electrical Consultants, and Power City Electric.  The project’s anticipated finish date is  summer of 2012.

Upgrades to the 46-year-old, nine-story building will include replacing steam boilers with high-efficiency water boilers; installing a new building control system; replacing air handling equipment; and making lighting upgrades. Funding for the improvements will come from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Thomas S. Foley Courthouse houses approximately 300 employees from a number of federal agencies including the  internal Revenue Service, Housing and Urban Development,  and the Department of Homeland Security, among others.
