B.H. Whipple Federal Building Modernization

Fort Snelling, Minnesota

Overview

Originally constructed in the 1969, the 700,000 square-foot Whipple Building is home to 13 government agencies, including Veterans Affairs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security. The multi-phase renovation provides a complete facility modernization and systems upgrade. The renovation reconfigures interior workspaces for individual agencies, adds shared common amenities, replaces the exterior curtain wall, improves security, and updates all mechanical, plumbing, fire-protection and electrical systems.

Sustainability

The Whipple Building enhances energy performance through efficient space planning, new technology, and restorative site planning. Energy-reducing technology includes a geothermal system integrate into the building's heating and cooling systems, solar panels to support the building's hot water requirements, roof-mounted photovoltaic panels for an electric source, electric car charging stations, LED lighting, and electronic energy optimization systems to ensure technology achieves core priorities.

The project is tracking LEED® Gold.
