Building for our future
Parsons’ federal facilities portfolio includes more than 430,000 buildings that are on 650 million acres throughout the nation. Many are more than 60 years old, while the need for new facilities is being driven by base realignment and closure (BRAC), global repositioning of troops, increases in military strength for the Army and Marines, and an increased need for border protection. This mixture of older buildings and a need for new facilities is driving a renovation and new construction boom that could last through 2013.
Our infrastructure services meet your needs
By providing our federal customers with services throughout a facility’s life cycle, Parsons anticipates and mitigates risks early in the planning and design process in order to reduce their impact during construction and the eventual O&M of the facilities. We work side by side with many of our customers to develop and carry out their capital improvement plans based on our facility condition assessment (FCA), cost estimating, and capital budgeting and programming expertise.
USPS Nationwide Real Property and Facilities Program
Sustainability through LEED
As the largest real estate holder in the United States, the federal government has a significant impact on how facilities are designed, constructed, and operated. As such, the government is innovative in its sustainability requirements by mandating reduced energy uses in federal buildings, asset management by examining the life-cycle management issues and costs associated with their entire portfolio, and adopting an early contractor involvement (ECI) model to ensure constructibility of new facilities. Federal agencies must meet Executive Order (EO) 13423—Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management, and they must develop a plan for all new facilities and renovation projects in order to implement design, construction, and O&M practices. These new federal stipulations have led many agencies to adopt the requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) rating system and achieve at least a silver rating on all new facilities. The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act requires that federal buildings reduce their energy use by 30% by 2015, and new or renovated facilities must completely eliminate their use of fossil fuels by 2030. Parsons is supporting its federal customers by designing to LEED standards and developing energy management plans based on energy audits and life-cycle asset management support.
