Special Edition: GSA Project Announcement
This month Tocci is proud to announce an exciting project: a $107.9m General Services Administration (GSA) Design-Build contract, funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, to execute the modernization of the Peter W. Rodino Federal Building in Newark, NJ. Tocci has formed a joint venture with L.F. Driscoll of Bala Cynwyd, PA to deliver this project.

The Peter W. Rodino Federal Building was originally built in 1968. Over the years it has had a variety of improvements, especially in the HVAC systems. The current renovation, to be performed by Tocci/Driscoll, includes the gut rehab of 9 floors of office space and a major overhaul of the MEP systems. The exterior facade will undergo full restoration followed by the installation of a glass curtainwall.

Tocci/Driscoll has employed KlingStubbins as architect of record; the program was designed by Dattner Architects of NYC.

The Tocci/Driscoll and KlingStubbins team will use advanced Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) technologies in the planning and execution of the project. The project will represent the GSA’s strongest foray into the use of 3D, 4D and 5D technologies as a means of markedly improving building quality, cost and schedule, and streamlining the overall process of delivering new or renovated buildings into service for the U.S. Government.

Project start is slated for June 2010.
