The GSA intends to backfill and modernize the current Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Enterprise Computing Center (ECC) building located at 985 Michigan Avenue in Detroit, MI. The site consists of a 10-story, plus full basement level and single-story connector, steel-framed high-rise, Class B, commercial office building; a 10-story concrete-framed, high-rise, parking garage with partial basement level; and a three-story, steel-framed energy center with full basement. The total gross measured floor area for all three buildings is approximately 866,000 SF.
The project is estimated to be complete in late 2020. The EEI team is working to achieve many ambitious goals set forth by the GSA. The GSA wants to attain LEED Certification at or before start of occupancy, and to achieve at least 30% energy use reduction compared to ASHRAE 90.1-2010. Our team is working to minimize disruption to tenants during construction while recommending whether the project can achieve LEED Platinum R&A certification or become “Net Zero Energy Ready” (NZER).
