The General Services Administration (GSA) Region 8 has awarded Procon Consulting a contract to provide construction management services for a 2-year, $11 million consolidation project at the Denver Federal Center. Procon will provide construction management and space planning services for the office space consolidation for the Bureau of Reclamation in Building 67 on the Denver Federal Center campus in Lakewood, Colorado.
Built in 1967, Building 67 houses approximately 1,200 Bureau of Reclamation personnel. The consolidation project will reduce the Bureau’s footprint by 36% from 275,000 SF to 175,000 SF with a utilization rate of 165 SF per person. The building will remain occupied and operation during construction.
In addition to providing full project management services during design and construction, Procon will provide tenant occupancy services including space planning and move management.
This is Procon’s first project for GSA in Region 8.
Procon was one of three firms awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide construction management services to the Architect of the Capitol (AOC). The base plus four-year construction management contracts are for construction projects on the U.S. Capitol Campus, at the AOC’s Fort Meade facility in Maryland, and at the Blue Plains Complex in southeast Washington, DC. Construction management services required will include project management, inspection, scheduling, claims analysis and defense, quality control and assurance, testing, change order management and other CM tasks.

Procon’s support will allow the Public Safety Cluster to better monitor, track, and analyze its Capital Construction Program, and will improve program oversight and reporting. Procon’s services will include data support, report development, implementation, and user training and support.
