Procon has been awarded a contract to provide comprehensive construction project management support services for the consolidation of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Headquarters in Camp Springs, MD. The 574,767 square foot building will be located at One Capital Gateway Drive and will house 3,656 personnel.
The new headquarters is a lease project between the U.S. General Services Administration and One Town Center LLC. When completed, the facility will increase space utilization rates and help reduce the government’s overall real estate footprint. CIS will be able to consolidate operations from five leased locations into one headquarters and that will reduce the agency’s footprint by 128,000 square feet and save the government about $21 million annually.
Procon will serve as GSA’s owner’s representative on the project and provide project management, cost estimation, and inspection services for this two-year project which will be completed August 2020.
Procon is pleased to announce the hire of John Mackay, CFM to lead its growing facility management practice. John brings twenty years of combined facility management and consulting experience to Procon’s broad-based construction management service offerings. John will be leading Procon’s team in assisting the U.S. General Services Administration in transforming the way they manage their facilities, train facilities staff, leverage technology, and align budgets to ensure optimal performance of GSA buildings and infrastructure.
“John adds great depth and expands our ability to add value for our clients across the entire property lifecycle”, says Mark Ilich, Vice President and co-founder of Procon.
John has managed all aspects of national facility programs and consulted with many organizations large and small across multiple sectors on organizational and staffing change, procurements, and technology. Mr. Mackay most recently served as the Director of Facilities for Cognosante where he applied new technology, policy, and procedures to build a scalable support department positioned for continued rapid growth. At Gannett, John helped to introduce performance-based contracts and FM technology.
John is a dedicated volunteer and has taught facility management and real estate courses for the International Facility Management Association and the George Mason University certificate program.
John holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Virginia and lives with his family in Washington, DC.
GSA awarded Procon a contract to provide owner’s representation services for the Joseph P. Addabbo Federal Building located at 155-10 Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica, NY in the borough of Queens. Built in 1988, the 923,200 SF office building is primarily occupied by the Social Security Administration (SSA). It consists of two underground levels for parking and 11 occupied floors with a child care center, public and employee entrances, and secured office spaces for the various SSA operational functions.
The $60 million project encompasses a wide variety of scope from repair and alteration projects to building improvement studies, both interior and exterior. Procon will assist in all stages of the projects, including pre-planning/programming, design, procurement, construction, and closeout. Procon will represent the owner interests of GSA and SSA and ensure that their requirements are being met in regards to scope, schedule, budget, and quality by providing a detailed management plan, maintaining an updated schedule, generating progress reports, and regularly inspecting the construction for quality assurance.
This is the third project awarded to Procon under a Construction Management IDIQ contract for GSA’s Region 2.
Procon will provide construction management (owner’s representation) services for the design, build-out, and relocation of two regional FEMA offices to the Emmanuel Celler U.S. Courthouse in Brooklyn, New York. The project includes the design and renovation of existing office space in the Celler Office Building. The project will be completed while the building is fully occupied and operational.
Procon has been awarded a contract to provide construction management (owner’s representation) services for the design and construction of a new federal courthouse in Anniston, Alabama to be completed in October 2021. The new courthouse will be built on a 3-acre site in Anniston’s historic central business district. The $42.7 million design-build courthouse will include two District courtrooms and three chambers for three judges (one each for active District, visiting District and Bankruptcy). It will also include space for each court’s clerks, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, The U.S. Probation Office, U.S. Marshals Service and GSA Offices.
This courthouse will consist of approximately 63,000 gross square feet and will include thirteen secure enclosed parking spaces. The project will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED Gold certification and will provide a flexible strategy for relocation, expansion, and movement of spaces to address not only 10-year requirements but also the court’s 30-year growth requirements.
Procon has more than 18 years of experience providing construction management services on major construction projects in the national capital region and throughout the country.
