WASHINGTON, DC—Turner Construction of Arlington, Va., was awarded a $73-million contract by the General Services Administration in January for the renovation of Federal Office Building 8 in Washington, D.C. The 547,000-sq-ft 1960s-era laboratory building will be transformed to Class A office space. Upon completion in October 2012, the project will seek LEED Gold certification. The renovation, designed by Boggs & Partners of Annapolis, Md., will add natural daylighting, employ the use of energy and water-efficient fixtures and low-VOC materials. The renovation will feature the addition of two atriums, glass curtain walls on each end of the building and projected window bays on the north and south facades.
