Hill International Selected by GSA to Manage Renovations at the Social Security Administration Headquarters Complex in Maryland
BALTIMORE, MD Hill International announces that it has received a contract from Region 3 of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide construction management services during modernization of the Arthur J. Altmeyer Building and renovations to the Robert M. Ball Building, both located on the headquarters campus of the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) located in Woodlawn, Maryland. The four-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $2.9 million.
The ten-story Altmeyer Building is the main building on the SSA campus and is connected through a series of links to the Ball Building and the West High Rise Building. The Altmeyer Building will undergo a complete modernization, with construction requiring all tenants to fully vacate the building prior to construction. For the duration of the project, Altmeyer tenants will be moved into temporary office "swing space" located in the adjacent Ball Building. The swing space will be designed and constructed, prior to the Altmeyer being vacated. Hill's scope of work includes managing the design and construction of swing space in the Ball Building to allow the Altmeyer Building to be vacated, and then managing the comprehensive renovation of the Altmeyer building. The two projects have a combined estimated construction cost of approximately $110 million.
"The Altmeyer Building is the public face of the SSA campus," said Edward C. Newman III, P.E., CCM, LEED AP, Hill's Senior Vice President and Washington, D.C., Regional Manager. "These renovations will deliver much needed upgrades providing optimal functionality for many years to come."
