Beck Technology LTD has been awarded a task order under its nationwide building information modeling (BIM) indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract with the U.S. General Services Administration to conduct a feasibility study for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
HUD is housed in the Robert C. Weaver Federal Building in Washington, D.C. Constructed in 1968, the building consists of more than 1.3 million square feet and houses more than 3,500 personnel. GSA's building recently was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Beck teamed with HOK Architects and Purdy McGuire Mechanical & Electrical Engineers to conduct the study with a focus on providing the Obama administration information evaluating the viability of a potential renovation and/or modernization. The team will be required to prepare a feasibility study and macro program of requirements through an objective and analytical evaluation of existing building information, client needs and assessment, and possible alternatives. Beck will use DProfiler and other BIM software to conduct the study and to capture pricing information, proforma and realty analysis, energy analysis, and visualization of the project.
