The Central Records Complex won a National Merit Award from the Design-Build Institute of America. The complex was recognized for design-build innovation redefining project success far beyond just schedule and budget.

A 256,000 square foot design-build secure, state-of-the-art records and technology center, the Central Records Complex was designed to centralize physical files and streamline the storage, retrieval, and management of mission-critical assets. To accomplish this, the federal government sought to design and construct a new facility that utilized an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). In addition to providing Class-A office space for almost 500 employees, the secure, state-of-the-art building also contains an ASRS for records, a visitor screening center, and operation support and secure service areas – all of which can operate around the clock, automated, and with minimal employee involvement. Phase 1 of the project was successfully completed on budget and one week ahead of schedule in January 2020.
